Graduate Program Outcomes (POs) Profile

  1. To produce graduates who pursue challenging careers, with skills to analyze and provide solutions in energy, environmental, food and bio, 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.

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. This was further expanded to 90 in 2013. Currently, the DCPE offers five focus areas after completion of their sixth semester, namely;

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

The Department degree program is regularly being revised and renovated under a collaborative effort by the academic and industrial personnel 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 to acquire necessary knowledge and skills during their stay in the department.
