Academic Program Overview
The Department of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering at the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering offers the degrees of doctor of philosophy (Ph.D.) and master of science (M.S.) in both chemical and biomedical engineering. The Department also offers the ABET-accredited bachelor of science degree in chemical engineering. The Department is strongly committed to continue building a graduate research program of national reputation in both applied and fundamental areas. The faculty believes that graduate programs must be diverse, interdisciplinary, and flexible in order to prepare chemical engineers that can handle challenging applications of the modern chemical industry. Twelve full-time teaching faculty members, one adjunct teaching professor, and one research associate currently comprise the faculty.
Active research efforts in Multiphase Transport Processes, Non-linear Process Control and Optimization, Polymer Characterization, Reaction Modeling and Analysis, Non-Thermal Plasma Treatment of Wastes, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance / Magnetic Resonance Imaging (NMR/MRI), Electrochemical Engineering, Separation of Biological Macromolecules, Non-equilibrium Processes, Tissue and Cellular Engineering, Colloidal Engineering, Neural Engineering, Fuel Cell Technology, and Computational Molecular and Macromolecular Dynamics.
