Research Expertise Ranging from Water Reuse to Cancer Detection

With its internationally recognized faculty and diverse programs, the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering is large enough to cover major academic and research areas yet small enough for individual attention.

Chemical engineering researchers at the University of Arizona are creating biodiesels using algae from wastewater; finding new ways to remove, dispose of and encapsulate hazardous waste; tracking aerosols in our atmosphere and particulates in our water; and using nanotechnology to advance semiconductor manufacturing, drug delivery, cancer detection and solar energy.
