Course Description

Chemical engineering is the application of science, in particular chemistry, physics and mathematics, to the process of converting raw materials or chemicals into more useful or valuable products. They are engaged in the development and production of a diverse range of products, commodities and specialty chemicals.  

These products include high performance materials needed for aerospace, automotive, biomedical, electronic, military, and environmental and health applications, which lead to a sustainable and improved quality of life.

Chemical Engineers are very much at the forefront to improve the quality of life. There are extensive opportunities in the designing of process equipment/plants, identifying chemical and physical properties of substances, researching new products and ensuring equipment/plant operates optimally.

UTAR Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Chemical Engineering covers the engineering principles required to develop, design, operate and control the processes and plants that involve molecular changes. It aims to produce graduates with the ability to apply the knowledge of science and engineering fundamentals in chemical engineering.
