Researchers Discover Rapid Mechanism for Atmospheric Particle Formation
An international team of researchers have discovered a previously unknown mechanism that allows atmospheric particles to very rapidly form under certain conditions. The research, published in Nature, could aid efforts to model climate change and reduce particle pollution in cities.
- Undergraduate program
Over the course of our undergraduate program, you will acquire a strong base of knowledge in basic science and mathematics, build to a deep knowledge of engineering science, and finally to chemical engineering design. Moreover, our lab courses emphasize projects where students work on innovative ideas, and decide what equipment to build or use in order to bring those ideas to life.
- Graduate programs
Our graduate programs take advantage of the cutting-edge research and technology at CMU through project work and graduate-level courses. Whether you’re looking for your Masters of Science, Chemical Engineering, or Colloids, Polymers, and Surfaces; or your Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering, our curriculum provides students with skills and technical depth relevant for a variety of careers.
