Chemical engineering is a complex field that deals with the operation of refineries, petrochemical and pharmaceutical plants to food and materials facilities, the design and invention of new composite materials and polymers, and making chemical processes more efficient, cost effective, and environmentally friendly.
Chemical Engineers conceive and design processes beginning with experimentation in the laboratory followed by implementation of the technology in full-scale production. It is shaped by the ongoing needs of industry including developments in chemistry, physics and biology.
This program has been designed to provide a balanced education in design, analysis and hands-on experience. The challenging four-year curriculum integrates courses in mathematics, chemistry, physics and chemical engineering.
You will be given the opportunity to integrate your chemical engineering knowledge by designing a plant and master industry specific software for process simulation and design.
“The ADU experience is about so much more than just studying.”
"Chemical Engineering was the perfect fit for me as I had loved chemistry, math and lab work since high school. I had a few universities to choose from but ADU came highly recommended by a family member who had also studied there. I made the right choice.
The ADU experience is about so much more than just studying. You get the highest standards of academic support and technical knowledge – the teaching and lab facilities are amazing - but you also get to have a social life! The flexibility of the class and exam schedules, combined with the support and advice you receive from the professors and staff, contribute hugely to this."
Tuition is based upon the College and/or Department classification as opposed to the course classification or level. Tuition rates for undergraduate students vary from the tuition rates for graduate students.
The tuition fee calculations are an example only and are based on the assumption that elective courses will be taken with the College that the student is taking their major with. However, if the student selects elective courses outside of this College, the total cost payable may increase or decrease to reflect the tuition rate of the College where the elective is delivered.
Costs of books and supplies are not included in the Tuition and Fees. Students at Abu Dhabi University are also required to pay certain fees and other costs to attend the University. Abu Dhabi University reserves the right to change tuition and fee rates at any time. A tuition schedule is published prior to registration for each semester.
