WHAT IS CHEMICAL ENGINEERING (CHEG)?
Chemical engineers differ from other engineers in that they draw upon the vast and powerful science of chemistry to solve a wide range of problems. The knowledge and duties of chemical engineers cut across many fields; they apply principles of chemistry, physics, mathematics, and mechanical and electrical engineering in their work. Chemical engineers are very versatile and are able to handle a large variety of technical problems. There is a large amount of scientific and technical knowledge inherent in this profession.
The Chemical Engineering undergraduate program educational objectives are that our alumni/ae: our graduates will be gainfully employed in chemical engineering or related career paths including industrial, academic, governmental and non-governmental organizations. Our graduates will continue their professional activities and/or training to enhance their careers and/or pursue post-graduate studies.
