Bachelor of Engineering in Chemical Engineering A chemical engineer makes use of his/her background in chemistry, physics, mathematics and biology together with the skills of engineering and computer sciences. A chemist, a related professional, is generally interested in the behavior and synthesis of chemicals and work in small quantities in the laboratory to economically produce products on a large scale. The responsibility of a chemical engineer typically consists of: Assessing the feasibility of a process in order to produce a chemical or a product Selecting and designing processing equipment Operating, monitoring and controlling production Preparing recipes, determining quantities to be mixed and compounded Quality control assuring a high quality product Monitoring the efficiency of the process; process development Managing chemical companies Marketing and sales of chemical products METU Northern Cyprus Chemical Engineering Program Chemical engineering requires a strong background in basic sciences, mathematics, engineering sciences and skills as well as environmental, social and ethical consciousness. Our curriculum is designed to educate the future generation of chemical engineers who are well equipped in all of these areas. The students develop a strong background in chemistry and engineering in courses such as organic and physical chemistry, thermodynamics, unit operations and reaction engineering. Using this basis, we educate engineers who are capable of designing, operating, monitoring and maintaining chemical process plants. In addition to a strong technical background, in many courses we greatly emphasize environmental consciousness, ethical responsibilities and occupational health and safety issues. The program allows for students to specialize in two concentration areas: Resources Engineering (Area A) and Chemical Product Engineering (Area B). Resources Engineering track is available all the time, whereas the Chemical Resources Engineering track is opened based on the number of students that demand it. Significant number of elective courses can be taken in each area providing program flexibility. Career Opportunities Chemical engineers who graduate from our program will be able to take responsibilities in the chemical and related industries. Chemical engineers usually work in the areas of petroleum refining, petrochemicals, rubber and plastics, pulp and paper, fiber and textiles, pharmaceuticals, dyes and paints, cosmetics, sugar and starch, fermentation, fine and specialty chemicals, soap and detergent, oil, glass, ceramic, cement, industrial gas, catalyst, semiconductor, food, fertilizer, and agricultural chemicals. It is expected that, many companies would highly demand our graduates due to their in depth knowledge in the Resources Engineering or Chemical Product Engineering areas. Resources engineering emphasizes sustainable raw material and energy use, whereas Chemical Product Engineering emphasizes development and production of products such as ceramics, composites, plastics, dyes, and paints.

Course Description The protection of natural resources, CO2 emissions, climate change and its effects, and demographic changes, are increasingly important topics in the local and international context. This degree course covers the national and global challenges of today and of the future, and includes a high level of interdisciplinary collaboration. The course of study is a merging of classical engineering with natural sciences. Environmental engineering deals with engineering solutions for environmentally relevant challenges of our future. This course will provide students with the ability to use problem solving approaches for dealing with ecological and technical challenges, in order to creatively arrive at a situation of resource sustainability. The course is a challenging, technically-oriented programme that offers students a broad range of fields of application. Environmental engineers can be active in the planning, construction and operation of environmentally technological facilities, in research and teaching, in environmental organisations, in administration, and in consultancy businesses of their own. Study/Course Delivery During this one-year programme students will follow 9 units of study. Students will follow a structured taught programme that will consist of class-based lectures and field work, supported and enhanced with a research project. Assessment All units for this course are locally assessed using MCAST grading and assessment criteria. For each unit of study a limited number of formal assessments (between 2 to 4) will be carried out by students to provide evidence of their learning. Programme Learning Outcomes Understand the basics of environmental engineering within a wide range of industries Carry out water, energy and environmental audits and basic environmental impact assessments Comprehend environmental legislation and regulations required to devise environmental policies Implement monitoring, logging, data management and interpretation of various environmental parameters with an aim of arriving at scientific conclusions to a specific problem.

BSc in Applied Mathematics

Eindhoven University of Technology

Whether it is your cell phone, the security details for your bank card, the supply of products to shops, image processing in the medical field or a digital prototype for a car: none of these would exist without mathematics. [+]

BSc Program in Natural Sciences in Europe 2017. Whether it is your cell phone, the security details for your bank card, the supply of products to shops, image processing in the medical field or a digital prototype for a car: none of these would exist without mathematics. You might not often even give it a thought, but mathematics is an essential part of our modern world. That is why there is also constant demand for versatile and widely deployable mathematicians, people who enjoy the challenge of solving problems and designing new products. Is being involved in creating the world of today and tomorrow something that appeals to you? Do you enjoy getting your teeth into a problem and do keep on searching for a solution until something has been solved? If so, our program in Applied Mathematics is the one for you. What is Applied Mathematics? Applied mathematics is a specific form of mathematics. It involves applying mathematical models in order to map out the mathematical core of a practical problem. With applied mathematics, you can solve problems that at first may not even appear to be mathematical in nature. This might be, for example, a practical problem that exists in industry or in (governmental) institutions. As a mathematical problem sometimes requires the investigation and researching of mathematics at a more fundamental level, you may well have to undertake in-depth study as an applied mathematician. And as you often collaborate with specialists from other fields, you will also need the ability to look beyond your own specialization. That is what makes applied mathematics so fascinating. Mathematical model Applied mathematicians produce a model of a problem and then use that model to carry out calculations in order to arrive at a solution. Solving a problem using a mathematical model involves 3 elements: Modeling: you produce a mathematical model for a practical problem. To do this, you need knowledge of mathematics and of the field from which the problem arises. It is therefore often the case that you as the mathematician work together with a specialist from the field in which the problem arises. Solving: if the mathematical problem is simple, the field specialist will solve the problem alone. If it is more complex, you as an applied mathematician work together with the field specialist. Retranslation of the solution to the original problem: you convert the solution of the mathematical problem according to the practical problem, so that specialists from the other field are able to use it. NVAO accreditation This program is legally recognized and accredited by the Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO). [-]
