About

The Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering was established in 1999 at University of British Columbia, and reflects the growing need for engineers in the fields of biotechnology, biomedical and bio-resource engineering.

Overview

Chemical and Chemical & Biological engineers create and develop processes to change raw materials into the products that society depends on; food, chemicals, fuels, energy, metals, pharmaceuticals, paper, plastics, and personal care products. Chemical and process engineers help to manage natural resources, protect the environment, control health and safety procedures, and recycle materials, while developing and managing the processes which make the products we use.

What makes the program unique?

Research funding per grant holder is amongst the highest for chemical engineering departments in Canada.  Several faculty members have won national and international recognition for their research contributions and many former students have gone on to become leaders in industry and academia in Canada and abroad.

The Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering from University of British Columbia facilities include a building with extensive custom research labs designed for quality world class research activities.
