The Washkewicz College of Engineering, a private institution founded in 1923, has enjoyed its reputation for excellence long before the founding of Cleveland State University. The Department of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering at CSU has since grown as an integral part of the degree-granting departments in the Washkewicz College of Engineering. The Undergraduate Program in concert with one of the most successful Cooperative Education Programs in the country, offer an attractive avenue to further your education. Full-time faculty and graduate students work actively in modern Chemical and Biomedical Engineering Research laboratories. The Department of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering also administers specializations in Chemical Engineering and Applied Biomedical Engineering (ABE) as part of the Doctor of Engineering Program in the College of Engineering.
In addition to local chemical companies, the Chemical and Biomedical Engineering Department maintains continuing relationships with The Cleveland Clinic Foundation, The Ohio Aerospace Institute, and the NASA Glenn Research Center.
If you are interested in an Engineering-related profession, CSU is an excellent choice. Contact the Chemical and Biomedical Engineering Department office at 216-687-2569 for more information and to schedule an appointment with our
undergraduate/ graduate advisors. The Career Services Center is also a good source of information.
Department Awarded $1.3 Million NIH Grant for Stem Cell Research
Dr. Moo-Yeal Lee and Dr. Chandra Kothapalli have been awarded a $1.3 million grant from the National Institutes of Health for innovative stem cell research to improve testing for toxic compounds that could harm the development of the human brain.
Department Graduate Makes Forbes 30 Under 30
Our own Eugene Malinskiy, MS of Biomedical Engineering, was nationally recognized by Forbes Magazine in the 2015 Forbes 30 Under 30 list in Manufacturing & Industry. At 29, he is the founder of a Cleveland Heights-based biomedical engineering firm, DragonID.
Full Assistantships Applications Available!
Full assistantships (tuition and stipend) are available for the doctoral programs in Chemical Engineering and Applied Biomedical Engineering! Please apply by March 1st for full consideration for fall semester.
The Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) requires that each ABET-accredited program must publicly post annual student enrollment and graduation data per program. Annual student enrollment and graduation data for the Department of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering and its programs can be found in the Cleveland State University Book of Trends.
