At Caltech Chemical Engineering, we aim to improve human health and create a sustainable and healthy planet through cutting-edge research and education enabled by a diverse and talented group of scientists. We prepare exceptional scholars to pursue disruptive careers in academia, industry, and the public sector through research experiences that continuously redefine and expand the field of chemical engineering.

Who We Are

Where We Work

The Merkin Institute helps Caltech scientists and engineers transform breakthroughs into advances in human health. Focusing enhanced resources and guidance to mobilize science at points along the translational arc from basic discovery through to clinical collaboration and the introduction of new treatments, the institute facilitates the translation of knowledge into healthcare products and services.

The Resnick Sustainability Institute (RSI) advances global sustainability through transformational science, engineering, and education. It prioritizes research across campus that addresses challenges and opportunities associated with climate change and the stewardship of natural resources. The fundamental insights gained are directed towards implementation and scale-up for real-world impact.

Beckman Institute

The Beckman Institute supports a number of Facilities, whose main function is the provision and operation of instrumentation and methodologies that are essential to a broad cross-section of research activity in the chemical and biological sciences at Caltech.
