About Us


Chair's Message

The School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering is a young and vibrant community. Our Faculty and staff are committed to providing a nurturing environment to inspire the next generation of leading Chemical engineers and Bioengineers with the ability to appreciate the multidisciplinary nature of the engineering profession. The next breakthrough will come at the interface of two or more disciplines and the School has positioned a number of interdisciplinary research areas such as Synthetic Biology, Biosensors, Tissue Engineering, Therapeutic Medical Devices, Nanomedicine, Food Science and Technology, Low Carbon Technology and Pharmaceutical Engineering.

State-of-the-art equipment complements the cutting-edge research work to explore creative solutions for the technological needs of our society. Strong partnerships are forged with our fellow colleagues in the international arena and with industries. These bonds create unique opportunities to spark innovative ideas and advances in pioneering research.

Our teaching pedagogy is inclined to the best student learning outcome where the query and learning processes are of primary importance. The School is committed to help students in “how we learn” and make use of the state-of-the-art learning tools at NTU. As we strengthen our core teaching and research capabilities, our community will continue to grow and inspire young engineers and scientists, contributing to the technological needs of our society.

It is my hope that we can inspire and educate students to beyond what they are capable and be technology transformers with an entrepreneurial spirit and character of the highest standard.
