UT’s Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering is one of the oldest in the South. Our roots date back to 1905, and we were one of the first programs to receive accreditation from AIChE in 1939.
Today, our students, faculty and staff are productive in all aspects of education, research, and service. In recent years, we have had students named as a Rhodes Scholar, a Fulbright Scholar, a Goldwater Scholar, and more. Many members of our faculty have received recognition as well, including several NSF CAREER Awards, various fellowships, and numerous teaching and mentor awards. We have two UT-ORNL Governor’s Chairs housed in our department, giving our students access to unparalleled opportunities with Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
