The Department of Chemical Engineering provides a broad and strong foundation which prepares graduates for entry into all areas of chemical engineering or pursuit of advanced degrees in chemical engineering and other disciplines. Our graduates are highly sought after by prestigious employers.

The Department of Chemical Engineering offers the Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering (BSChE) and Master of Science in Chemical Engineering (MSChE) degree programs. Chemical Engineering involves the many aspects of processes in which matter and energy undergo change. It is based on the sciences of chemistry, physics and mathematics and the principles of economics and environmental protection. Chemical engineers are generally regarded as versatile problem-solvers. Working in consultation with other engineers and scientists, chemical engineers define problems, determine objectives, and plan and conduct research to design, develop, computerize and control the processes.
