The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering works with local, national and international partners to support world-class learning and solve real-world problems.

In the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, we seek out practical solutions and meaningful partnerships. Our students excel because they learn alongside expert practitioners and industry leaders. Our faculty are known around the world because that’s where their research is applied. We strive to produce the engineers America needs — and the skilled employees American industry prizes.

Vital to that effort is the continued support of national and international companies who give their resources and expertise in mutually beneficial partnerships. From financial support and research collaborations to internships and employment opportunities for NC State students and graduates, we enjoy rewarding relationships with some of the best in the business.

The Place to Get Results

The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering is far from alone in its educational and research mission. It’s a vital cog within NC State’s College of Engineering, one of the finest of its kind in the world. Both the department and the college are based on the university’s award-winning Centennial Campus, a bustling hub that is home to more than 70 partners and multiple world-class centers and institutes – among them the Golden LEAF Biomanufacturing Training and Education Center and the Nonwovens Institute.

NC State also enjoys close ties with the neighboring Research Triangle Park, a national destination for bold, pioneering ideas. The Research Triangle Park houses a number of federal research institutions alongside industrial laboratories for leading companies like GlaxoSmithKline, BASF, Bayer CropScience, and IBM. The interplay among industry, government and pre-eminent universities like NC State make the area ripe with promise for students, faculty and partners alike.
