Course Description

Chemical Engineering is a branch of engineering covering the design and operation of industrial plants for the conversion of raw materials into useful value-added products by economic, hazard-free, environment-friendly processes.

An engineer should be trained in applying physics, chemistry and mathematics in identifying, analyzing problems, and synthesizing optimum solution. He will need to have the skills to tackle multi-disciplinary problems and work in a team as well as on his own. We aim to produce professional and ethical graduates who have the capacity to manage the nation’s resources responsibly in the aspects of environment, safety, health and social welfare by registering as Graduate Engineers and qualifying for the Professional Engineer status, realize the importance of further professional growth through continuing education, and contribute as leaders through their professional training via their participation in activities either governmental or non-governmental, local and overseas. Chemical engineers are frequently in demand in the manufacturing, processing industry to manage large scale process plants producing food, agricultural chemicals, medicine, consumer products, oil and gas, and petrochemicals. Students study, among others, thermodynamics, chemical and bioprocessing, unit operation, safety and loss prevention plant design, management and accounting. Courses that have been offered are: Laboratory 1 to 6, Process Control, Particle Technology, Petroleum Processing, Solid Waste Management, and Plant Design Project I & II, Computers and Process Simulation and many others.
