About the Division of Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental, and Transport Systems

The mission of the Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental and Transport Systems (CBET) Division is to support innovative research and education in the fields of chemical engineering, biotechnology, bioengineering, and environmental engineering, and in areas that involve the transformation and/or transport of matter and energy by chemical, thermal, or mechanical means.

CBET research and education investments contribute significantly to the knowledge base and to the development of a 21st century workforce for major components of the U.S. economy, including chemicals, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, forest products, metals, petroleum, natural gas, food, textiles, energy utilities, alternative energy sources, microelectronics, and other sectors. Support for environmental research encompasses pollution prevention and remediation as well as life-cycle analysis.

These research investments lead to technologies that can improve environmental conditions; enable reliable and sustainable sources of energy; and create a dependable and resilient national infrastructure. This infrastructure will consist of clean and reliable sources of municipal and drinking water; transportation; information technologies; health-related products; and other areas that impact our lives.

CBET achieves these objectives across its four program clusters listed below. Please follow the links to each program to learn more about the current areas of research they support.

Chemical and Biochemical Systems

Biomedical Engineering and Engineering Healthcare

Environmental Engineering and Sustainability

Transport, Thermal and Fluid Phenomena
