Currently, School of Chemical and Biological Engineering is located in Building 302 (within Gwanak campus). Building 302 is home to 33 professors' laboratories, a library and an information search room. Building current has one of the highest quality educational space available within SNU campus.

Prior to our move to Building 302 in year 2001, School of Chemical and Biological Engineering was spread out within Building 30, Building 32, Building 34, and Building 37. Building 302 now provides centralized research and education spaces with 19 lecture room, and 1 seminar room, and one large lecture auditorium.

As of 2016, the School of Chemical and Biological Engineering is composed of 535 undergraduate students, 53 master's students, 404 doctoral students, and 33 faculty members. In 1999, our department has received the Brain Korea 21(BK21) Chemical Engineering Graduate Training Grant and has successfully completed its first stage project for 7 years

This grant allowed us to establish a world-class education and research program, and we have successfully completed the second phase of the BK21 project from 2006 to August 2013. In September 2013, we successfully competed and won the BK21 Plus Grant

Within the School of Chemical and Biological Engineering, there are 7 start-up companies that are located in Institute of Chemical Processes. In addition, large-scale government sponsored grants are currently being carried out by our faculty members. The academic achievements resulting from these projects and grants are have contributing to the society through technology transfer and commercialization.

Our graduates are in high demand by academia, industry and government, and many find their places in the oil refinery, petrochemical, semiconductors, pharmaceutical, medical sectors. We take a great pride in that many of our graduates have taken a leadership role in their respective fields.
