Chemical and Biochemical Engineering Achievements

From its beginning, our program has achieved marks of national distinction:

  • We were one of the first chemical engineering programs in the United States (1905)
  • The sixth¬†AIChE¬†student chapter was begun here (1924)
  • We were the sixteenth chemical engineering program to be accredited by ABET (1926)
  • We were the first to grant a Ph.D. in chemical engineering to an African-American woman (1972)
  • We established one of the first degree programs in chemical and biochemical engineering (1989)
