What is Biomedical, Chemical & Materials Engineering?
Be a part of the solution! Biomedical, Chemical and Materials Engineers make a difference by designing new chemicals, materials, and processing that better the world.
Biomedical engineers design and manufacture biomedical devices, incorpoating everything from basic materials properties and mechanical design through policy and regulations specific to the biomedical industry.
The Chemical Engineering and Materials Engineering disciplines are similar in that each combine significant components of chemistry, physics, and engineering. The ChE programs offer emphases in biotechnology, materials science, environmental, or microelectronics processing. The MatE programs provide emphases on structural materials, electronic materials, bio and nanomaterials. Chemical Engineers generally work in manufacturing environments dealing with the processing of gas and liquid phase products, while Materials Engineers typically work in development of solid phase processes. Graduates of both programs find employment in Silicon Valley in the electronics, semiconductor equipment and processing, data storage, nanotechnology and biotechnology industries.
