Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
About the Department
As one of the largest chemical engineering departments in the world, we enjoy the luxury of being strong in both classical domains and emerging areas in chemical and biomolecular engineering. Our strength in the classical core areas, such as process systems engineering, process control & optimization, catalysis, reaction engineering, membrane science & technology, transport phenomena and separation processes, is complemented by our equally strong activities in emerging areas such as functionalised & smart materials, nanostructured materials and interfacial engineering. Combined with these strengths, our expansion into biomolecular engineering (protein engineering, drug-delivery systems, systems biology) and biomedical engineering (tissue engineering, chemotherapeutic engineering), provides a comprehensive and rich educational and research environment designed to equip you to contribute to research and industry in Singapore and worldwide, and to maintain our position in the forefront of chemical engineering in the 21st century.
From Classical to Contemporary
Intellectually, the Department provides the critical link between engineering and the sciences, particularly the chemical and life sciences, by bridging the gap between molecular-level, laboratory-scale studies of chemical and biological transformations and the large-scale industrial production operations. With the recent revolution in molecular biology and life sciences, the Department has expanded its traditional scope to include solutions to problems in biomedicine, biotechnology, systems biology, protein engineering, drug-delivery systems, and chemotherapeutic engineering, among others. The Department has also responded to the emergence of nanoscience and technology as a viable new frontier by expanding the classical role of chemical engineering in “scaling up” processes to include problems that require “scaling down” phenomena and processes for applications in labs-on-chips and plants-on-chips devices.
