Emerson Process Management PlantWeb Process Automation Laboratory

The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Nebraska is dedicated to teaching students the engineering knowledge required to have successful careers. Students will learn to apply engineering principles through hands-on training and experience in the Unit Operations Laboratory. Students complete 7 projects during their junior year and 3 projects during their senior year. Each project concludes with a formal verbal and written report. The department is committed to providing students with a challenging and rewarding experience working with pilot scale equipment commonly found in the chemical, biochemical, petroleum, and pharmaceutical industries.
