The Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering (PME) is the first school in the nation dedicated to this emerging, fast-growing field.
Through the innovative application of molecular-level science, we’re providing pivotal new approaches to fundamental societal challenges in areas such as quantum engineering, biotechnology and immunoengineering, advanced materials, energy storage, and a clean global water supply.
Our distinctive approach to research and education brings together experts in diverse academic disciplines to examine and develop holistic solutions to complex issues. We're dedicated and passionate about the work we do here because we know it will have an impact not only on future generations of molecular engineers, but also on humanity and quality of life.
Pritzker Molecular Engineering embraces an important evolution in research that inextricably links the impact of the sciences with advances in technology and engineering. To be successful, the next generation of scientists and engineers must have knowledge and a skill set that spans traditional boundaries.
PME was built with interdisciplinarity in mind. Our students receive an education and training grounded in a variety of disciplines – from physics to chemistry and electrical engineering to materials science, and more. Come here and you will graduate prepared for a competitive career in industry, government, or academia.
