The Department of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering at Florida State University is proud to offer graduate and doctoral programs in Chemical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering.


Graduate Program in Chemical Engineering

Chemical Engineering (ChE) encompasses the development, application, and operation of the processes in which chemical and/or physical changes of material are involved. The work of a chemical engineer is to analyze, develop, design, control, construct, and/or supervise chemical processes in research and development, pilot-scale operations, and industrial production. Emphasis is placed on the application of computer analysis to problems encountered in the above areas. Chemical engineers are employed in the manufacture of inorganic chemicals (i.e., acids, alkalis, pigments, fertilizers), organic chemicals (i.e., petrochemicals, polymers, fuels, propellants, pharmaceuticals, specialty chemicals), biological products (i.e., enzymes, vaccines, biochemicals, biofuels), foods, semiconductors, and paper.

Chemical engineers having graduate degrees work in a wide range of organizations where their technical skills are needed. These may include: local, state, and federal governments; private and public corporations; and education. Chemical engineers are involved in process and plant operation, technical services groups, research and development laboratories, plant design groups, occupational and safety programs, technical sales, technical training, and technical management. Graduate education can lead to careers in the medical sciences, chemical engineering, and other engineering and scientific disciplines as well as business and law. The Chemical Engineering program is offered by Florida State University.
