The function of the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering has been to prepare students for the study and application of chemistry in industry. This focus has included preparation for employment in various industries as well as the development, design, and operation of equipment and processes within industry.Through the CBE Department, Iowa State University is nationally recognized for its initiatives in bioinformatics, biomaterials, bioproducts, metabolic/tissue engineering, multiphase computational fluid dynamics, advanced polymeric materials and nanostructured materials.

History
The Department of Chemical Engineering was founded in 1913 under the Department of Physics and Illuminating Engineering. From 1915 to 1931 it was jointly administered by the Divisions of Industrial Science and Engineering, and from 1931 onward it has been under the Division/College of Engineering. In 1928 it merged with Mining Engineering, and from 1973–1979 it merged with Nuclear Engineering. It became Chemical and Biological Engineering in 2005.

Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching
In 1993, the Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching was borne out of a collaborative idea of the Faculty Senate and the Senior Vice President and Provost Office to “support our faculty in ways that help them become better, more effective teachers.” While Iowa State University takes great pride in its research mission and commitment as a doctoral-granting research extensive university, we are equally proud of how teaching is at the core of our educational experience. Indeed, the bedrock of a world-class research university is its commitment to enhancing learning in the community of scholars.
