Undergraduate(UG)

Students are selected to follow the B.Sc. in Chemical and Process Engineering (CPE) course based on their performance in semester I examination and their individual preferences. Until 2009, student intake was restricted to 50, which has been increased to 80 in 2010. Currently the department of Chemical and Process Engineering offers four minor specialization streams after completion of their sixth semester, named;

  • Energy and Environmental Engineering
  • Food and Biochemical Engineering
  • Polymer Engineering
  • Petroleum Engineering

Students have the option of following the Chemical and Process Engineering degree program by selecting subjects without any minor stream specialization.

The Department degree program is regularly being revised and renovated under collaborative effort by the academic and industrial personal with the objective of creating highly skilled graduates who meet the needs and demands in both the industry and the academia. Students have the liberty of approaching the department professionals at any time for acquiring necessary knowledge and skills during their stay in the department.

Program Educational Objectives

  1. To produce graduates who pursue challenging careers, with skills to analyze and provide solutions in energy, environmental, food, polymer and other related industries and emerging areas with an appreciation of the role of Chemical Engineering in the society.
  2. To produce graduates who pursue advanced studies in Chemical Engineering and related disciplines.
  3. To create engineering leaders with a global focus, displaying entrepreneurship skills.
