What is Chemical Engineering?

The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at KAIST aims to tackle important life-science and chemical engineering challenges by applying traditional and evolving chemical engineering principles. Chemical engineers are responsible for the design of chemical processes for the manufacture of various types of product. Broadening the area of interest to a wide spectrum of fields, we seek to nurture chemical and biomolecular engineers who can address current societal issues, ranging from energy crisis to environment preservation to improvement of daily living.
