Overview

Opportunities

Students enrolled in the Chemical and Biological Engineering (Energy and Sustainability) programme offered by University at Buffalo, The State University of New York School of Engineering and Applied Sciences achieve mastery of core and specialized areas of chemical engineering, as well as the ability to conduct research on a well-defined problem formulated by the student's faculty advisor.

The degree is designed to accommodate both applicants with and without prior Chemical Engineering training, and may be augmented by following a recommended curriculum in one of four areas:

  • Biotechnology
  • Modeling, Simulation, and Informatics
  • Chemistry and Processing of Materials
  • Energy and Sustainability

The Chemical Engineering ME with a course focus in Energy and Sustainability addresses two of mankind's grand-challenge issues from a chemical engineering perspective.

It is designed to train students in both the fundamental and practical aspects of energy conversion, conservation, and supplies, as well as the sustainable use of resources and our environment. This includes the study of conventional and renewable energy technology, fuels, catalysis and chemical reaction engineering, green chemistry and materials, processing, separations, remediation, and thermodynamics. These skills and insights will equip our students to pursue potential solutions in this vital field of engineering.

Industrial job opportunities are growing in chemical, materials, petroleum and agriculture areas as well as in the technology and policy sectors. Government jobs are available at national laboratories and various government agencies.
