University Majors

University of California, Santa Barbara
Chemical Engineering B.S.

Chemical Engineering is an evolving discipline that grounds the engineer in a wide array of engineering science fundamentals in order to tackle problems at the forefront of technological development. In addition to the classical areas of fluid mechanics, transport phenomena, thermodynamics, reaction engineering, separation processes, and process control, the chemical engineering program at UCSB offers teaching and research opportunities in a host of modern areas. These include macromolecular science and engineering; microscale and mesoscale systems such as thin films, complex fluids and membranes; surface chemistry and microelectronic materials; large scale computation and simulation; biomedical engineering; reactor safety and reliability; structural materials; and materials characterization via advanced techniques such as NMR spectroscopy, neutron and X-ray scattering, and scanning tunneling microscopy.
