Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
In the past decade, the scope of chemical and biomolecular engineering has expanded dramatically. While chemical engineers continue to work in the chemical and petroleum industries, they are just as likely to be employed in biotechnology or pharmaceutical companies, at electronics manufacturing facilities, or in the environmental divisions of corporations or government institutions. In each of these industries, the chemical engineering concepts of transport phenomena, reaction kinetics, and thermodynamics are fundamental to technical issues addressed by engineers.
To recognize the growing need for chemical and biomolecular engineers to acquire a broad range of skills in the basic sciences and related engineering fields, in addition to advanced training in core chemical and biomolecular engineering competencies, Johns Hopkins has developed a flexible Master of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering program with concentrations in four defined areas: Cell and Molecular Biotechnology, Nano/Microtechnology, Biomaterials/Drug Delivery, and Colloids and Interfaces. Hopkins will also continue to offer the traditional Master of Chemical Engineering degree in which the student develops a core program in chemical and biomolecular engineering augmented with elective courses from related engineering fields, the basic sciences, and mathematics. This degree encompasses a professional, non-thesis curriculum for practicing engineers.
