UH Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
We are engineering chemicals and petrochemicals, clean energy, and medicines and inventing new advanced materials, polymers, and biotechnologies for a healthier prosperous America. Our academic programs cultivate broad knowledge and creative thought in one of the most impactful disciplines in science and engineering. Be part of UH CHBE.
The UH ChBE department has been renamed as the William A. Brookshire Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. Dr. William A. Brookshire graduated from UH in 1957 with a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering and later co-founded S&B Engineers and Constructors. Though he passed away in 2017, his continued philanthropic impact on the educational excellence of UH faculty, students and researchers is significant. Endowments fuel the momentum of the academic mission in perpetuity, helping the Cullen College of Engineering excel as an internationally recognized hub of research activity in the fields of chemical and biomolecular engineering.
The ACS Bridge Program (ACS BP) mission is to strengthen the chemical sciences in the United States by increasing the number of underrepresented minority students who receive doctoral degrees in chemical sciences.
