Chemical Engineering

Chemical Engineering (CME)

Chemical Engineering deals chiefly with industrial processing to produce value-added products from raw materials. It therefore embodies the processing of organic (crude oils, natural gas, lumber), inorganic (ores, rocks, salts) and biological (sugars, lipids, proteins.) materials into a wide range of useful commodity products, such as fuels, plastics, pharmaceuticals, fertilizers, cement and foods. In the department, there is emphasis on design, control, optimization and economic operation of equipment in these areas, and on related research and development.

This undergraduate degree program prepares professional engineers for successful careers in chemical and related process industries whereby they apply a combination of their knowledge of mathematics, science, chemistry as well as engineering to overcome technical problems safely and economically – food, pharmaceuticals, materials, fuel and energy. Specifically, chemical engineers apply the principles of chemistry (as a basic foundation) to solve problems involving the production or use of chemicals and other related products. They can also design equipment and processes for large-scale chemical manufacturing, plan and test methods of manufacturing products and treating by-products, and supervise production.
