Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
About the Department
As one of the largest chemical engineering departments in the world, we enjoy the luxury of being strong in both classical domains and emerging areas in chemical and biomolecular engineering. Our strength in the classical core areas, such as process systems engineering, process control & optimization, catalysis, reaction engineering, membrane science & technology, transport phenomena and separation processes, is complemented by our equally strong activities in emerging areas such as functionalised & smart materials, nanostructured materials and interfacial engineering. Combined with these strengths, our expansion into biomolecular engineering (protein engineering, drug-delivery systems, systems biology) and biomedical engineering (tissue engineering, chemotherapeutic engineering), provides a comprehensive and rich educational and research environment designed to equip you to contribute to research and industry in Singapore and worldwide, and to maintain our position in the forefront of chemical engineering in the 21st century.
From Classical to Contemporary
Intellectually, the Department provides the critical link between engineering and the sciences, particularly the chemical and life sciences, by bridging the gap between molecular-level, laboratory-scale studies of chemical and biological transformations and the large-scale industrial production operations. With the recent revolution in molecular biology and life sciences, the Department has expanded its traditional scope to include solutions to problems in biomedicine, biotechnology, systems biology, protein engineering, drug-delivery systems, and chemotherapeutic engineering, among others. The Department has also responded to the emergence of nanoscience and technology as a viable new frontier by expanding the classical role of chemical engineering in “scaling up” processes to include problems that require “scaling down” phenomena and processes for applications in labs-on-chips and plants-on-chips devices.

Welcome to the NUS Alumni Family
|As a graduate of NUS and its predecessor institutions, you are part of the illustrious family of 196,000 alumni. In fact, our alumni body in Singapore and across the globe constitutes the third pillar of the University community, which also includes our faculty and staff, and our students.|
At the NUS Alumni Office, we are committed to serve and enrich the lives of our alumni and engage them in NUS’ aspirations. We maintain a synergistic network of 43 Local Alumni Groups and 14 Overseas Alumni Chapters through which we help you stay closely connected with your alma mater and with fellow alumni.
NUS’ state of alumni relations has taken a quantum leap with the completion of the Shaw Foundation Alumni House. The Alumni House serves as Our Home on Campus for NUS alumni. It is a vibrant hub for building bonds, expanding networks, encouraging lifelong learning, connecting with our global community and fostering partnerships.
As an alumnus, you enjoy a host of privileges such as AlumNUS Card, the AlumNET, the AlumMail – a complimentary, lifelong email address that identifies you as an alumnus of a world-class university – as well as access to the NUS Alumni e-Community that keeps you connected with NUS.
As part of our prestigious family of global alumni, we value your active participation and contribution to the NUS community and we encourage you to contribute your time and talents to your alma mater. So stay connected at www.alumni.nus.edu.sg!
|Welcome to NUS. We hope you will enjoy your stay in the University. This section will help you find out some fast facts and figures on NUS, information on getting around the campus, the range of accommodation available – and also some useful information on Singapore. Happy exploring!
