Undergrads Roll Up their Lab Coat Sleevesjmcmanamay@virginia.edu
Meaningful research is fundamental to the UVA Department of Chemical Engineering’s educational mission for undergraduates. As second-, third- and fourth-year chemical engineering majors, students have opportunities to collaborate with professors and graduate student mentors on important research in areas such as catalysis, biotechnology, materials engineering, nanotechnology and more.
Chemical engineering undergraduates, while integral to the department’s research programs today, are preparing to be the engineering leaders of tomorrow through rigorous science training, hands-on practice and teamwork.
