About Oregon State University
The School of Chemical, Biological, and Environmental Engineering at Oregon State University has its roots in one of the oldest and most respected chemical engineering departments in the western United States. Our school is a hub for innovation in education and research for the process engineering sciences, emphasizing the integration of chemical, biological and environmental engineering principles and practice to provide work-ready graduates and technical solutions for a sustainable future.
Faculty-led research seeks to engage industry and achieve global impact, particularly in nationally-strategic areas, including renewable energy, nanotechnology, sustainable water, and advanced therapeutics and processes for health care. In addition to providing an environment for collaborative research and training along interdisciplinary themes, we provide our graduate students with educational opportunities and resources to enable them to recognize how their research would be used for an economic or societal benefit, as well as hands-on experience enabling them to learn the processes that would be required to complete translation of their research to practice.
