About Us

Welcome to the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of New Hampshire.

As one of a select group of Land, Sea and Space Grant Colleges, our students are presented with a wealth of research opportunities at both graduate and undergraduate levels of study.  Our newly renovated science buildings offer state of the art laboratories, departmental computer clusters and advanced classroom spaces.

The Department of Chemical Engineering offers students B.S., M.Eng., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees.  Our award winning faculty has a long standing commitment to teaching excellence.  All of our professors are researchers, who balance instruction and research in the classrooms and in the labs.

Undergraduate students in the Department of Chemical Engineering are encouraged to participate in engineering internships over the summer and many students participate in the pollution prevention (P2) program. Many of our students have been successful in securing internships in local industries in New Hampshire and in the greater Boston area. We have an excellent placement record. Some students start their career in industry whereas others choose to go on to graduate school to specialize and obtain advanced degrees in diverse fields such as biochemical engineering, biomedical engineering, materials science, management, patent law, etc.

At the graduate levels, our M.Eng., M.S., and Ph.D. students are offered research opportunities in biomedical engineering, biochemical engineering, electrochemical engineering, separations, advanced materials, polymer engineering, reaction engineering and environmental engineering.  A five year BS/MS degree program option offers our students an opportunity to earn an advanced degree in a condensed timeframe.

The Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of New Hampshire was established in 1950 and has been accredited by ABET since 1964. The department has 9 faculty members, approximately 200 undergraduate students, and 15 graduate students. The Faculty in the Department of Chemical Engineering also advise undergraduate students in the Enviromental Engineering - Industrial Processes (ENE-IP) track. The department offers three options in the areas of bioengineering, energy and the environment.
