What Is Chemical Engineering?

One of the oldest departments of Newark College of Engineering, the Otto H. York Department of Chemical, Biological and Pharmaceutical Engineering awarded its first three baccalaureate degrees in 1923.

From its earliest days, the department incorporated real-world work experience into the curriculum through cooperative education with area companies. The department's faculty has also developed research partnerships with industry and government. Chemical engineering alumni hold leading positions in business, law, research and academe.

Today the department has 260 currently enrolled students majoring in chemical engineering. Last year, NJIT awarded 36 bachelor's degrees in chemical engineering, 18 master's degrees, and six PhDs.
