Overview

The Chemical Engineering Faculty

The faculty in the department of Chemical Engineering is a blend of qualified persons rich in industrial experience and academic qualification. The faculty has Ph.D's, M.Sc. Engineering and persons with vast industrial and engineering design experience. All the faculty members are well trained in the art of imparting knowledge and communication skills.

The Curriculum

Syllabi & Courses of reading in Chemical Engineering are as per the latest guidelines of Higher Education Commission and Pakistan Engineering Council. The courses have been designed in consultation with representatives of academic institutions of Pakistan, representatives of Chemical industry all over the country and needs of foreign Universities offering higher degrees in Chemical Engineering. This is why graduates of this department have been accepted for higher studies by Universities all over the world.

Career in Chemical Engineering

Due to vast range of scientific and technical knowledge that this profession has, the chemical engineer is described as “Universal Engineer”. Our graduates are extremely versatile and able to handle a wide range of concerned technical problems. 

A large number of positions are available for chemical engineers in sugar industries, cement factories, fertilizer projects, power generation plants and defense organizations. Chemical engineers may enter the division of production and advance towards plant or production management positions or they may find their position useful in design development or research departments.

Petroleum processing, pharmaceuticals, food processing, natural and synthetic rubbers and plastics, electronic materials, surface coatings, atomic energy, environmental control and biotechnology are some of the other fields where chemical engineers can be employed.

New Laboratories

Two new labs have been added in the department – A Chemical Reaction Engineering Lab and a Simulation Lab.  The process development often begins with a bench scale laboratory study, small scale glass or metal equipment employed to obtain data of an exploratory nature.  Such experimentation is valuable in that it often provides an inexpensive way of having the feasibility of a process and directing the way to further research effort.

In pilot plant operation and laboratory scale equipment, a procedure like that of a commercial plant is followed so that the data obtained can be used in scaling up of the pilot plant to commercial size.  It is essential that all the theoretical knowledge available be used for practical purpose.  Thus the knowledge of kinetics, gained from the bench scale operations aid greatly in the design of pilot plant/reactor design etc.

Keeping in view the requirements of modern industrialization, Process Design and Simulation has attracted not only the industrialists but also the process engineers in many aspects like Process Development and Research, Safety Engineering and Environmental Protection, Plant Engineering, Automation and Control, Quality Assurance.  Diagnoses, Prognoses, Optimization as well as Marketing. 

It is the need of hour to upgrade the knowledge of fresh graduates. For this purpose CHEMCAD and ANSYS software has been procured and installed on 30 Core i3 computers and the students are being trained.

Coal Research Center

NFC IET has established a Coal Research Center with the financial assistance of Ministry of Science & Technology (MOST) Govt. of Pakistan by spending Rs.67.34 millions.

The objectives of this project are to carry out Research Work on Coal Combustion, Coal Gasification and beneficiation.  The Research Center is ready to provide research support for energy and environmental research programs.  In addition to performing proximate and ultimate analysis, provide a wide variety of testing. Calorific value of fuel, flue gas analysis, grindability index of coal, sieve analysis, size reduction, ash fusion temperature, analysis of refinery Gas/Natural Gas/Coal/Biomass Gases and Element Analysis of Drinking/Waste Water.

Our mission is to provide high quality and reliable, physical and chemical analytical testing services and technical trained manpower to the energy, textile, sugar and cement sector of the country.
