strong potential to become leaders in their respective fields and to contribute
to teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The Department has
internationally recognized programs in Energy and Sustainability, Catalysis and
Reaction Engineering, Materials, Multi-Scale Modeling, and Biomedical Engineering. Active collaborations exist with several adjacent
centers, including the University of Pittsburgh Center for Simulation and
Modeling, the Center for Energy, the Petersen Institute for Nanoscience and
Engineering, the Mascaro Center for Sustainable Innovation, the University of
Pittsburgh Medical Center, the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine, and
