The programme focuses on the design, operation and maintenance of chemical and material manufacturing processes. Chemical Engineers (Process) engineers intimately deal with the scaling up of chemical reactions or processes that are of importance to society. They must determine how to exploit the knowledge on chemical reaction to design and operate facilities and processes in order to produce commercial quantities of a product. Chemical engineering (Process) also involves developing new processes, project engineering and troubleshooting. They are found in a vast range of industries, such as the petrochemical, mineral processing, material, Information Technology, food and pharmaceutical and biotechnological industries. This branch of engineering is a challenging and rewarding profession for those who aspire to make their mark in, for example:
- protecting and improving the quality of our environment,
- reliably supplying precious energy to society,
- developing and manufacturing raw materials, chemicals and pharmaceutical products to sustain the quality of modern living, or
- the discovery of new materials through nanotechnology and life science for the betterment of society.
