Department of Chemical and Environmental

Engineering (CHEE)

Bachelor of Chemical Process Engineering

 

The academic curriculum of the programme complies with engineering contents as in the Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC) Manual. A balanced curriculum is designed such that students would have the knowledge and competency to work professionally as an engineer. The curriculum covers basic engineering emphasis and specialization in chemical engineering. The humanities elements are also embedded in to produce well-rounded engineers who are morally sound and ethical, and able to communicate effectively. Chemical Process Engineering program was designed for students who wish to acquire a solid foundation in chemical engineering with deep knowledge of the principles and practice of chemical engineering.

 

Chemical Process Engineering (CPE) courses are organized into 8 semesters. Semester 1 covers basic knowledge such as communication in English, Programming, Engineering Mathematics, and Introduction to Chemical Process Engineering. During the second semester, students will be introduced to basic chemical engineering through Thermodynamics. In addition students will also be introduced to general university courses such as Graduate Success Attributes. The following year (Semester 3 and 4) will cover several chemistry and basic chemical engineering courses to develop strong fundamentals, such as Mass and Energy Balance, Fluid mechanics, Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics, and Transport Phenomena. In the 5th until 8th semester, students are introduced to further chemical engineering principles, undergraduate research project, and undergo industrial training for minimum of 12 weeks. Graduates of this program will also be
prepared for entry into post graduate education.

 

 

Graduates from this program can seek employment opportunities as process engineers, design engineers, chemical engineers, research engineers, technical sales engineers, commissioning engineers, service engineers in the chemical and biochemical industry, the oil and gas industry, the water and waste water treatment industry, the power station, the food industry, the pharmaceutical industry, the electronic industry, the heavy industry etc. Graduates of this program will also be prepared for entry into post graduate education either in MJIIT or other universities worldwide.
