Chemical Engineering Technology

The programme covers the laws of chemistry, physics and mathematics which form the basis of many industrial processes in areas such as energy, oil and gas and chemical processing. The programme prepares the students for positions as engineers with the technical and managerial skills necessary to enter careers in the design, manufacturing, operation, and maintenance of chemical processes. Students will gain practical knowledge in heat and mass transfer in plants and process control design projects. Graduates typically have strengths in applied design, development and implementation of chemical engineering systems.

Programme Educational Objectives

  1. Graduates have the technical skills necessary to enter careers in the various Chemical Engineering Technology fields and be successful as an entry-level chemical engineer in areas such as process, safety, operation, instrumentation and manufacturing engineering.
  2. Graduates have strength in their knowledge of laboratory applications.
  3. Graduates are able to generate engineering designs and operate based on sound engineering principles.
  4. Graduates have ethical, managerial, communication, leadership, and technical service skills necessary for careers in the various areas of Chemical Engineering Technology.
  5. Graduates are involved in lifelong learning.
