Chemical engineers are problem solvers who are constantly developing and improving the materials, processes, and products that we use on a daily basis. They apply chemistry, physics, biology, and mathematics to create technologies and products for industries ranging from energy to medicine.
As a chemical engineering student at URI, you will have ample opportunities to engage in research at the undergraduate and graduate level. You’ll learn alongside faculty who are experts in their field. You’ll work in cutting-edge lab facilities and be immersed in a culture of fostering student excellence. And when you graduate, you’ll be well-positioned for a wide range of exciting and rewarding career paths.
- Lasers and Iron Could Revolutionize Water Treatment - Lasers and iron may help the world treat contaminated water, URI researchers say. The first-of-its-kind study subjected ferrate — a form of iron — to a wide spectrum of light and analyzed how its electrons behaved.
- URI Engineering Researchers Awarded $750k Grant on Floating Wind Turbines - The Biden administration has set a goal of deploying enough offshore wind turbines to produce 30 gigawatts—enough to power tens of millions of homes—by 2035.
- URI Awarded $1.14 Million to Attract Under Represented Students to Engineering - CHE Associate Professor Samantha Meenach has won a federal grant that will help students from underrepresented groups pursue studies in engineering.
