Research Strengths

computer modeling

Computational Modeling and Molecular Engineering:

Researchers develop mathematical models that simplify a practical problem so that it can be simulated on a computer, working with systems that range from the molecular scale to simulation of chemical plants.

Electrochemical Engineering Lab

Electrochemical Engineering:

Researchers working in electrochemical engineering study the conversion of chemical energy into electrical energy to create better batteries and fuel cells.


Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
