Thank you for considering a gift to the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Society’s need for the outstanding young engineers this department produces has never been greater. By giving back to the department, you help to assure that we continue to provide the first-rate education that will launch these talented young women and men on their careers.
For more than 100 years, the University of Wisconsin has built and sustained a reputation for excellence and leadership in the field of chemical engineering at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Top students from Wisconsin and worldwide have found in this department an environment that exercised, challenged and broadened their minds, helping them to develop the technological and leadership skills needed to stimulate a robust economy, a healthy environment, and a just society. At the same time, this department has helped to lead the field through the development of textbooks, monographs, and other instructional materials.
The field of chemical engineering has broadened tremendously over the years. The discipline has always maintained a unique focus on chemical transformations and the systems in which these transformations occur. With recent advances in the biological sciences, ever more of these transformations are being engineered to take place in biological systems, prompting the department to change its name from Chemical Engineering to Chemical and Biological Engineering in 2003. Building on advances in materials science, computing, and other areas as well, the field today is more diverse and dynamic than ever, and is well positioned to tackle on many fronts the wide array of issues facing society.
