Research and Facilities

In this Section

The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering is housed in the Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP) Building on the west side of the Racquette River on Clarkson's beautiful hill campus.  The CAMP complex consists of research laboratories, faculty and department offices, classrooms, special test laboratories, and the Multidisciplinary Engineering Laboratory.  The first floor of the CAMP complex also contains the Multidisciplinary Engineering Computer and Design Laboratory.  The complex is by far the largest structure on the hill campus.

Research interests in the department are varied. Supported by the federal and state governments and industry, the faculty investigate a broad range of topics; external research support obtained by our faculty members through grants and contracts typically exceeds $2 million per year.  Our students and faculty members publish vigorously in respected journals, and present numerous talks at national and international meetings. Faculty members also serve on national committees and provide consulting services to government and industry.

The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering houses well-equipped laboratories in the CAMP Building for performing research on atmospheric chemistry, bioengineering, chemical-mechanical planarization (CMP),  chemometrics, computer-aided process engineering, electrochemistry and electrochemical engineering, energy systems,  fluid mechanics and transport phenomena, green manufacturing, materials processing, nucleation, separation processes, and surface and interfacial processes. The Department has a fuel cell test laboratory and facilities for conducting research on alternate energy sources.  Also, excellent facilities are available for aerosol generation and ambient and indoor air pollution sampling and analysis, as well as tools for advanced data analysis.  Fabrication and Laboratory services are provided by Technical Support Service, located in the CAMP Building.
