A Plan for the Future One of the most highly ranked departments within the University, we are still making bold plans for the future that include new faculty hires to support the Notre Dame mission and build an even stronger more impactful program for our students and our local and global communities.
A Plan for the Future
Controlling Chemical Reactions Catalysts are the knobs that give engineers the ability to control chemical reactions, specifically the reations that transform raw materials into useful products. Advances in computer power, theory, and algorithms allow chemical engineers to apply quantum mechanical models to catalysts for more robust, durable, and cost effective solutions.

Water: The Very Life of the Party From water purification to pharmaceuticals and energy generation, faculty and students in the W.A.T.E.R. lab are tailoring polymeric membranes for specific applications.

Fine Tuning Biomass to Power Vehicles and More Having a sustainable source of fuel is essential to industry, transportation, and more. It also impacts national security. Led by Assistant Professor Jason Hicks, researchers at Notre Dame are concentrating on non-food related biomass to fine tune this renewable energy resource.

New Perspectives Produce Novel Results Researchers in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering are employing a unique tool — the development of molecular cavities — to create gas separation membranes capable of discriminating between gas molecules by their size. In short, they can tune the cavities to specific gas molecules, providing both high permeability and high selectivity.
New Perspectives Produce Novel Results

2017 Shaheen 3MT® Engineering Finalists Named
2017 Shaheen 3MT® Engineering Finalists Named
March 8, 2017

Three competitors were chosen after an energy filled qualifying round last Thursday to represent the College of Engineering at the Shaheen 3MT®finals. They are Mark Summe (chemical and biomolecular engineering), Maryam Moosaei (computer science and engineering), and Mingming Cai (electrical engineering), stood out against six other challengers. These students will go on to compete against finalists from the College of Science and the College of Arts and Letters at the March 27, Shaheen 3MT® Finals event in the Jordan Auditorium at Mendoza College of Business.
