With UNH positioned as one of a select group of Land, Sea and Space Grant Colleges, our students are presented with a wealth of research opportunities at both graduate and undergraduate levels of study.  Our science buildings offer state of the art laboratories, departmental computer clusters and advanced classroom spaces.

The Department of Chemical Engineering offers students B.S., M.Eng., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees, including B.S. degree in Chemical Engineering and B.S. degree in Bioengineering Our award winning faculty has a long standing commitment to teaching excellence.  All of our professors are researchers, who balance instruction and research in the classrooms and in the labs.

Undergraduate students in both Chemical Engineering and Bioengineering programs in the Department of Chemical Engineering are encouraged to participate in engineering internships. Some students start their career in industry while students choose to go on to graduate school to specialize and obtain advanced degrees in chemical engineering, bioengineering, biochemical engineering, biomedical engineering, materials science or management in patent law.

At the graduate levels, our M.Eng., M.S., and Ph.D. students are offered research opportunities in biomedical engineering, biochemical engineering, electrochemical engineering, separations, advanced materials, polymer engineering, reaction engineering and environmental engineering.  A five year BS/MS degree program option offers our students an opportunity to earn an advanced degree in a condensed timeframe.

The Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of New Hampshire was established in 1950 and has been accredited by ABET since 1964. The department has 11 faculty members, approximately 200 undergraduate students, and 20 graduate students. Besides B.S. degrees in Chemical Engineering and Bioengineering programs, the department offers three options in the areas of bioengineering, energy and the environment in Chemical Engineering program.
