Department of Chemical Engineering Overview
The Department of Chemical Engineering provides broad−based programs resulting in B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees. The Undergraduate Ch.E. Program at Texas Tech University prepares students for a profession in chemical engineering − an exciting and challenging profession that combines the principles of the physical and chemical sciences with the discipline of engineering to solve modern technological problems and to be of effective service to society. The chemical engineer participates in the continual development of new processes and new products that form the basis of much of the manufacturing segment of the global economy.
The Graduate Ch.E. Program at TTU introduces students to the excitement of world−class research in Process Control, Bioengineering, Polymers, Rheology and Materials Science, Computational Fluid Dynamics and Reaction Engineering. Our laboratory facilities support innovative experimental programs and our computational resources are exploited for state−of−the art modeling activities.
Chemical Engineering at Texas Tech University has a long history of healthy interactions with industry and both the undergraduate and graduate programs benefit from these programs.
