Strategic Plan

William A. Brookshire Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (CHBE) at the University of Houston is dedicated to producing graduates of the highest scholarship and with skills that will enable them to prosper in their careers and to adapt to a field in transition.

The Department has three specific tasks:

  1. To provide a high-quality education for undergraduate and graduate students in Chemical Engineering through a comprehensive curriculum that emphasizes basic science, mathematics, engineering science, and engineering design. UH CHEE faculty members are expected to maintain their reputations as superior teachers and to provide a stimulating educational environment.
  2. To engage in research programs that train graduate students, procure support for this research on a continuous basis, and contribute to the development of fundamental knowledge in the field of chemical engineering. The Department’s varied and aggressively pursued research ensures that our faculty members remain at the technological forefront of their respective areas of specialization.
  3. To be of service to the community at large and, in particular, to the City of Houston and the State of Texas, and to provide the local engineering community opportunities for advanced and continuing education.
