Where Chemical and Environmental Engineering Converge
On-the-job learning and hot research topics – like biofuels, aerosols, waste remediation and semiconductor manufacturing – draw students from near and far to UA chemical and environmental engineering – and keep them there.
Join a community where research is a core focus and all students are prepared to succeed, a place where everyone knows your name. Learn from some of the best minds in chemical engineering and environmental engineering alongside some of the highest achieving students at the University of Arizona.

Strength in Small Numbers
“The classes are geared toward helping us develop a sense of community, so no one has to go through a difficult major alone.”
Prime Locale for Water Reuse
“Water scarcity in this region has made everyone hyper-aware of water issues and extremely focused on finding ways to sustain their way of life in the desert.”
“Most environmental engineering programs are housed in civil engineering departments… Chemical engineers have a proven track record in developing biochemical and other process technologies, which are critical for targeted treatment systems.”
Active Learning at Its Best
“Our students are really successful, amazingly so. My goal is to create a series of tasks and questions that force even the best students to make tough choices.”
“We put a lot of time and energy into professional mentoring; telling students exactly what opportunities are out there for chemists, mathematicians and environmental engineers.”
Chemical Engineering Is…
“Chemical engineering is the art of changing what’s made in the lab to produce a product that’s going to help hundreds of thousands of people.”
Training for Jobs of the Future
“The very fabric of our nation’s economic and environmental sustainability hinges on a precarious balance of water supply reliability and security in the face of climate change and increasing urbanization.”
