|CBE Home > About Us
The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at NC State is widely considered to be one of the best of its kind in the nation. Our goal is to give students the support and encouragement they need to achieve their individual intellectual promise, and our faculty and staff take pride in the fact that our graduates are recognized for their technical competence, creativity, enthusiasm, and professional skills.
Chemical Engineering has evolved from its traditional roots into one of the most diverse, interdisciplinary and versatile fields within engineering. Within this context, our undergraduate and graduate programs have been organized to address changes in the discipline through incorporation of areas that include biotechnology, polymers, nanotechnology, energy and environmentally responsive processes, and biomanufacturing. The strength of our Department lies in our commitment to excellence in both teaching and research, and in our ability to provide the educational resources necessary for their accomplishment.
