Department Website

The Dept. of Chemical Engineering at The University of Utah has history and a reputation for providing quality, industry-oriented education. Chemical engineering is based on applications of chemistry, biology, physics, materials science, mathematics, and economics. The chemical engineering curriculum includes the study of applied mathematics; material and energy balances; properties and physics of gases, liquids, and solids; fluid mechanics; heat and mass transfer; thermodynamics; chemical and biological reaction kinetics and reactor design; and the integrating subjects of process design, control, and economic optimization. Graduates often work in process operations, design, research, sales, marketing, management, consulting, and government agencies. Because of the breadth and flexibility of the major, it is chosen by some students who plan to pursue graduate study in medical sciences, materials science, business administration, or patent and environmental law.
