Program Overview and Objectives

Delivery type Duration Language Intakes Study location
Day Full-time: 4 years English Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer Available at Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Dubai campus;
Al Dhafra Region and Abu Dhabi Downtown (Subject to CAA approval)

Chemical engineering is a complex field that deals with the operation of petrochemical and pharmaceutical facilities, the design and invention of new composite materials and polymers, and making chemical processes more efficient, cost effective, and environmentally friendly. It is shaped by the ongoing needs of industry including developments in atomic science, polymers, paper, dyes, drugs, plastics, fertilizers, foods, textiles, and chemicals.

This program will equip you with the knowledge and skills required in the growing petrochemical, polymer, pharmaceutical, and food industries, as well as the expanding water desalination projects, in the UAE and wider region. You will be uniquely qualified to design, analyze, and test wide-ranging solutions for state-of-the-art chemical engineering systems and processes.

Designed to provide a balanced education in design, analysis and hands-on experience, this challenging four-year curriculum integrates courses in mathematics, physics and chemical engineering and emphasizes a number of areas of technology including Gas Processing and Petrochemicals, Polymer and Materials, Water Treatment and Desalination, and Biotechnology. 
  • Career Prospects

    Graduate Chemical Engineers have plenty of job opportunities in the gas, petrochemicals and petroleum, water desalination, food and drink, composite materials and polymers, power generation, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. 

    Companies include Abu Dhabi Ports, ADCO, ADGAS, Al Masaood Oil & Gas, Arab Geotech Laboratories, Bureau Veritas, Gulf Laboratory, Masdar Institute, Schlumberger, Union Chemicals Factory and Worley Parsons.
