The undergraduate curriculum in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering includes options for different tracks of study and provides students with foundational knowledge in biology, chemistry, physics, and mathematics.

Our academic offerings are strengthened through research experiences that enable students to work closely with renowned engineers and scientists–at the School of Engineering, as well as with faculty and researchers at Johns Hopkins’ schools of Medicine and Applied Physics Laboratory. Undergraduates also benefit from our faculty members’ affiliations with major centers and institutes, such as the Institute for NanoBioTechnology, where students contribute to research advances in fields ranging from drug delivery and nanotechnology to alternative energy and cancer research.

The curriculum in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering is designed to be completed in four years, and students who plan carefully and/or use Advanced Placement credits can have the flexibility to pursue double majors and/or minors, study abroad, and tailor their studies to their interests and needs.
