About Chemical & Biological Engineering
The Department of Chemical Engineering at The University of New Mexico offers the ABET-accredited bachelor of science degree in chemical engineering. We also offer the master of science, and doctor of philosophy degrees in chemical engineering. Faculty in CBE also participate in the interdisciplinary graduate programs offering the MS and PhD in Biomedical Engineering (BME) and in Nanoscience and Microsystems Engineering (NSME).
Chemical engineers have long played key roles in a diverse set of industries that include petroleum, food, pharmaceuticals, artificial fibers, petrochemicals, plastics and ceramics. In these areas, chemical engineers design and develop the processes for large-scale manufacturing that result in affordable products that are essential to our way of life.Chemical engineers are on the forefront of rapidly developing areas that include biotechnology and biomedicine, semiconductor manufacturing and data storage devices, and advanced materials with precisely-controlled microstructures. Chemical engineering is also widely applied to environmental protection and remediation, process safety, and hazardous waste management.
