We keep our class sizes small to create a unique environment that provides students with the training to face future challenges while promoting the exchange of ideas beyond the classroom.
The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Rice University is continually working to educate outstanding undergraduate and graduate chemical engineers to rise to leadership roles in academia, industry, law, business, medicine and government. This happens amidst interdisciplinary research that’s creating innovations to applications in the chemical, energy, biotechnology and materials industries.
As a chemical engineering student, you will have the opportunity to explore a multidisciplinary array of courses, or you can focus on a particular specialization. Our curriculum encompasses both fundamentals and applications to give students a sound scientific and technical grounding for further development in a variety of professional environments.
Our graduate programs provide a sound understanding of engineering fundamentals so that our students are versatile and have a mastery of engineering tools to be productive with clear goals of professional development.
