Executive Summary

Today's discipline of chemical engineering extends far beyond what it included 25 or 100 years ago. One aspect of meeting new technical demands is new sub-disciplines. Many U.S. chemical engineering departments have been renamed Chemical and Biochemical, Chemical and Biomolecular, or Chemical and Biological Engineering. Some include the word Materials or Environmental in their names. At the Univ. of California, San Diego, the chemical engineering program is now part of a Department of Nanoengineering. It is unclear whether these actions will ultimately result in renaming or splitting of the chemical engineering profession itself.
