Historically, chemical engineering has been primarily concerned with process engineering. Today, the discipline of chemical engineering, however, encompasses much more than just process engineering. Chemical engineers are now engaged in the development and production of a diverse range of products, as well as in commodity and specialty chemicals. These products include high performance materials needed for aerospace, automotive, biomedical, electronics, environmental and military applications. Ultra-strong fibers, fabrics, adhesives and composites for vehicles, bio-compatible materials, gels for medical applications, pharmaceuticals, films with special dielectric and energy fuel cells are some of the large number of practical applications that chemical engineering has. Additionally, chemical engineering is often intertwined with biology and biomedical engineering projects.
The field of Chemical Engineering serves the industries where matter is treated to effect a change of state, energy content or composition. Chemical Engineer, in these industries, may be concerned with either the processes or the process equipment used for them.
Chemical Engineering undergraduate programme includes a thorough study of mathematics, physics and chemistry as well as an understanding of biological, physical and chemical operation and processes. Courses in this programme cover material and energy balances, transport phenomena, reaction kinetics and process & equipment design. The students also have a choice of electives from topics such as Petrochemical Engineering, Biochemical Engineering, Petroleum Refinery Engineering, Polymer Engineering and some general management topics. The strength of this program is that it enables our graduates to enter the chemical/process industries with confidence and their abilities find almost immediate use.
