Chemical Engineering Research Areas and Disciplines

Research in chemical engineering is broadly based in 3 areas: biochemical engineering, polymers and reaction engineering, and process systems engineering.

Much of the work in biochemical engineering is multi-disciplinary and involves collaboration with researchers in biology, biochemistry, cell biology, mechanical engineering, environmental microbiology and chemistry. Research in biochemical engineering includes the conversion of biological materials into energy, such as the conversion of corn into fuel. There is also research into converting waste materials into more usable forms. Additional research efforts include the design of bioreactors for environmental and biotechnological applications, encapsulation technologies for drug delivery and bioprocesses, and the biomimicry of natural composites.

Research in polymer and reaction engineering range from the design of new materials for drug delivery, to the development of improved operating and control strategies for large-scale reactors used in polymer production. Examples of current research topics include experimental and modeling studies of polymerization systems; materials for drug delivery and surgical applications; chemical modification of polymers; and enhancing the cure rates of modified vulcanization polymers.

Research in process systems engineering includes using applied statistics, process control, control theory, systems analysis, and system modeling. These are used to improve control techniques (high performance process control), real-time optimization of processes, process monitoring, and hybrid systems control. There is also research into not only improving on current processes, but development new processes as well. This includes processes for the development of new materials for the aerospace, military, automotive, and electrical industries.
