The faculty has active research programs in many of the most exciting and important fields of chemical engineering. Undergraduate students participate in research in each of these areas, and the faculty encourage all students to consider taking advantage of this resource and enrich their education by participating in projects that are intended to lead to new discoveries.
Through original research, students learn new experimental, computational, and theoretical skills that can help both in their class work and in their future careers. Research also provides an opportunity for students to experience, while still undergraduates, the challenges, expectations, and excitement that would occur if they chose a career path that included graduate school followed by academic or industrial research.
