Welcome to the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Currently, our faculty are actively leading research into both traditional chemical and energy industries as well as new areas of application and innovation, such as biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, advanced materials, and sustainable energy.
Our primary mission is to educate leaders and innovators through creation of fundamental knowledge and technologies in the chemical and biomolecular sciences and engineering. The general theme of our program is to foster creativity, to recognize excellence, and to promote a collegial and cohesive research and educational environment while emphasizing the value of diversity.
I encourage you to explore this website to learn more about us and what our program has to offer.
