Explore Our Graduate Program
Graduate work in chemical and biomolecular engineering provides an opportunity for students to further their studies and research. Our graduate program uses cutting edge tools, and resources so that we can contribute to shaping new methodologies for chemical and biomolecular engineering research. We help provide coursework and guided research for the M.S. and Ph.D. students. This exposure allows students to have core principles augmented that students receive as undergraduates. Their research gives unparalleled experience in problem solving, a key component to challenging issues of today for a better tomorrow.
Congratulations to Professors Burcu Beykal, Yongku Cho, and Yu Lei on winning the $500,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF)’s Future Manufacturing initiative! This interdisciplinary team with Professors Mingyu Qiao (PI), Yangchao Luo, and Rigoberto Lopez from UConn College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources, and Professor C. Patrick Heidkamp from Southern Connecticut State University will tackle carbon-neutral amino acid synthesis with microalgae.
