Research of Emphasis Areas

Research is one of the activities of most interest to the Department of Chemical Engineering of the Universidad de los Andes. For this we have the support of researchers highly trained at top universities abroad, a laboratory infrastructure with the latest technology in equipment, strategic agreements with research centers in North America and Europe, and the best students and support staff.

This way, the Department of Chemical Engineering seeks, through their research, to generate new knowledge and technologies that have a real impact on a national and international level in three mayor areas: 

  • Advances Materials 
  • Biological Engineering
  • Product and Process Design
