Faculty and staff at the school have extensive experience teaching and conducting research and have received training at prestigious universities in the United States (University of Utah, University of Louisville), United Kingdom (Imperial College London), Korea (University of Ulsan), Japan (Kyoto University) and Taiwan (National Central University, National Chiao Tung University). A number of international and national awards have been bestowed upon our faculty and staff for their contributions to education and research.


The laboratory system consists of experimental (i.e., Organic/Inorganic Chemistry*, Physical & Analytical Chemistry*, Environmental Teaching, Microbiology* and Process Engineering*) and modeling/simulation (i.e., Computational Chemistry) laboratories. These labs provide students with an opportunity to learn about the latest advances in chemical and environmental engineering. Students also benefit from strong collaborations with national and global partners who share our vision of providing world class education and research opportunities.
