About

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. The Chemical and Biological Engineering program is offered by the University of British Columbia.

Overview

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

We have established a world-class reputation in several areas of chemical engineering science including fluid-solids contacting, pulp and paper engineering, heat exchanger fouling and, more recently, biotechnology.

The Department is actively engaged in applied research, CHBE faculty-led research provides innovative and sustainable solutions to pressing local and global challenges to industry and society.

What makes the Chemical and Biological Engineering 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 facilities include a building with extensive custom research labs designed for quality world class research activities.
