About the Academic Programs

The Division of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering (CCE) provides undergraduate and graduate students with a world-class education in all areas of the field.

CCE's top-ranked programs blend innovative coursework that requires—and teaches—critical thinking with hands-on research and interdisciplinary collaborations that help students build a fundamental understanding of nature's processes.

Undergraduate students in CCE can pursue either the chemistry or chemical engineering options. (An option is Caltech's version of a major.)

Graduate students in CCE can choose either the chemistry or chemical engineering option, or an interdisciplinary option in biochemistry and molecular biophysics, which is run in partnership with the Division of Biology and Biological Engineering.
