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 related 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
The Bachelor of Chemical Engineering with Honours 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:
In order to graduate with the Bachelor of Chemical Engineering with Honours degree, students are required to obtain a minimum of
143 credit hours.
