Chemical engineers are known as the universal engineers of all time and are well-versed in converting raw materials to more practical forms by applying both physical sciences and life sciences. Fusing chemistry, biology, microbiology and biochemistry with mathematics, this branch of engineering is versatile and allows room for specialisation in many areas, such as nanotechnology, re?ning, bio-diesel production and petrochemical production, to name a few. 

The Chemical Engineering degree programme o?ered at UCSI University is designed to equip students with fundamental engineering and scienti?c knowledge in the ?eld of chemical engineering. 

The programme focuses on core technical operations in the chemical sector such as material handling, ?uid ?ows, material and energy balances, mass and heat transfers, thermodynamics, chemical reaction designs, separation processes, environmental engineering and petroleum re?ning processes, to name a few. Apart from being solidly grounded in technical applications, the students are also furnished with management skills during the course of their study, in line with current demands of the industry. 

In this programme, students are also required to undergo industrial training under UCSI University’s Co-operative Placement (Co-op) Programme at the end of their 2nd and 3rd academic years. The objective of the Co-op programme is to provide an avenue for students to gain exposure to professional practices in an actual working environment in addition to developing the necessary soft skills pertinent to their individual development. Student learning is also enhanced by industry visits, talks by prominent guest speakers from professional bodies, laboratory works as well as plant design projects, among other hands-on activities. 

Accreditation 

All of UCSI University’s engineering degree programmes comply with the latest requirements for accreditation by the Malaysian Engineering Accreditation Council, which fulfils the international requirements drafted in the Washington Accord.
