What is Chemical Engineering?

The aim of the Department of Chemical Engineering undergraduate program is to educate students to become chemical engineers with a strong background in fundamental engineering principles  and  production technologies that require chemistry and chemical engineering expertise.

The department was founded in 2002 and have about 350 graduates working in different areas of chemical and related industries at executive, production, design, and research and development positions. As of 2019, more than half of the Chemical Engineering graduates  have earned Master’s and Ph.D. degrees at national universities or abroad.

Chemical Engineering  Faculty consists of two professors, four associate professors and four assistant professors with multidisciplanary research areas including biotechnology, nanotechnology and material science  in addition to the traditional chemical engineering areas. The faculty members have degrees and/or postdoctoral experience from esteemed national  and foreign  universities.

The medium of instruction is English and students are strongly encouraged to learn a second foreign language to be able to pursue  opportunities in the international context.

The department provides international experience through Erasmus and Exchange programs.

The duration of education is four years. The curriculum includes science courses (Math, Physics, General and Physical Chemistry, Organic and Bioorganic Chemistry)  in the first and second year of the program. Fundamental engineering and chemical engineering courses (such as Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Heat Transfer, Reactor Design and Process Control) are taught in the second to fourth year. The department offers a wide range of specialization courses in addition to the core chemical engineering courses which expose students to engineering software through team-oriented  projects.

Currently, there are about 200 undergraduate and 30 graduate students enrolled  in the department’s undergraduate, Master’s and Ph.D. programs.
