Programme Code: EFA00
Chemical engineers are needed in fields such as plastics, oil refinery, explosives, fertilisers, detergents, and food and mineral processing.
Chemical engineering plays an important role in society by minimising and controlling the impact of modern industry on the environment, society, and businesses.
The curriculum, therefore, includes courses on environmental engineering, management principles, and professional practice and ethics.
Courses such as Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics, Chemical Reactor Theory, Process Control, Solid Fluid Systems, Transport Phenomena, Mass-Transfer Operations, and Chemical Plant Design are studied after the first year.
In the final year, you will study elective subjects in advanced chemical engineering topics.
You need a thorough understanding of Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry, and must be computer literate.
