Why ChemBE at Hopkins?

Five Reasons to Study Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Hopkins

1: You will be part of a team tackling some of society’s greatest problems and challenges.

Our students and faculty are engineering new therapies to combat cancer, developing biofuels for alternative and sustainable energy, and designing materials for a wide array of application ranging from nanomedicine to molecular electronics.


2: You want to create and follow your own career path.

Small classes and personal, one-on-one advising allow our students to develop relationships with faculty, whose deep and diverse expertise can help guide your studies toward the path that is right for you. Our program prepares you for a career in academia or industry, including the chemical, pharmaceutical, medical, law and even financial sectors.


3: You will become part of Hopkins’ extensive research network.

Our undergrads participate in collaborative research programs with scientists and engineers from across the Homewood campus, Johns Hopkins Medicine, the Johns Hopkins Institute for NanoBioTechnology, the Applied Physics Laboratory and even nearby government laboratories. This extensive research network provides our students with an extraordinary array of experiences that take place in state-of-the-art facilities.


4: You will take advantage of unique research opportunities and leadership experiences.

At Hopkins, we emphasize experiential learning, with opportunities outside the classroom, from independent research projects to summer laboratory courses in Denmark and even internships at leading chemical and pharmaceutical companies, as well as government agencies.


5: You want to be at the forefront of modern chemical engineering research.

Our undergraduates work side-by-side with our faculty on cutting-edge research in nano- and micro-technology, cell and molecular biotechnology, interfacial phenomenon, computational biology, molecular thermodynamics, drug delivery, biomaterials, and tissue engineering.
