Bachelor of Engineering (Hons) Chemical Engineering

About the Course

Chemical Engineering focuses on the application of engineering principles to the design, construction and operation of industrial processing plants. A chemical engineer generally works at any industrial processing plant such as those dealing with petrochemicals, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, semiconductors, food processing and other allied industries. The job involves supervision of plant operation and maintenance, troubleshooting operational problems related to process, and undertaking plant modification work for process operability and safety improvement. 
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Chemical programme stresses the need for a strong foundation in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry, followed by a thorough coverage of basic engineering courses such as Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics and Mass & Heat Transfer. In the later years of study, students are exposed to Unit Operations, Reaction Engineering, Safety & Environment, Process Control and Process Design. In addition to the above, at the end of their studies a student will have the opportunity to take special topics in one of these selected areas of interest:
  • Environmental and Sustainable Engineering
  • Process Plant Engineering
  • Gas and Petrochemical Engineering
  • Process Analysis and Control
  • Process Plant Safety
