  • About the Program

    Program Mission

    The educational mission of chemical engineering undergraduate program is to provide students with a premium education through a well-developed curriculum that is fundamental, yet broad and flexible. The program seeks to produce graduates who are well-rounded in mathematical, scientific, and technical knowledge; who are prepared for the successful practice of chemical engineering with sufficient depth to continue their education beyond the baccalaureate degree; who have the ability to analyze, evaluate, and design chemical engineering systems; who have the ability to communicate effectively; who have gained sufficient awareness of the current and emerging industrial practices through participation in industrial internship experiences; and who have acquired an understanding of and appreciation for global and societal issues and are thus prepared for a career path towards leadership in industry, government, and academia.

    Program Educational Objectives

    The main objectives of the Chemical Engineering program are to:

    • Prepare graduates who are skilled chemical and process engineers who serve as professional role models for the next generations;
    • Prepare graduates who take part in the development of the country's chemical and process industries and are able to work abroad;
    • Prepare graduates who develop themselves professionally or follow graduate studies; and
    • Prepare graduates who apply principles of mathematics, chemistry, and chemical engineering to the design and operation of safe, economically feasible, and environmentally responsible chemical and petroleum processing systems.

    Program Learning Outcomes

    The following program outcomes describe competencies and skills that our students acquire by the time of graduation. Our graduates are expected to be able to:

    • Apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering principles to chemical engineering;
    • Design and conduct laboratory experiments safely, as well as critically analyze and interpret data;
    • Design a system, component or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability;
    • Function in teams and in multidisciplinary teams;
    • Identify, formulate, and solve problems encountered in the practice of chemical engineering;
    • Demonstrate understanding of the professional and ethical responsibility of a chemical engineer;
    • Communicate effectively with written, oral and visual means;
    • Demonstrate an understanding of the impact of chemical engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context;
    • Recognize the need for and the ability to engage in life-long learning;
    • Demonstrate knowledge of contemporary issues; and
    • Use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for chemical engineering practice.
  • Degree Requirements

    These courses can be chosen from set of courses in the major apart from the above courses (9 credits) and from any other program at the University for which you meet the entry requirements (9 credits). Alternatively, you can choose a Minor (6 courses) in a specialization other than English.
