Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering

General

Program Description

Chemical Engineering is concerned with the manufacturing of products from laboratory bench-scale testing to full production through deep knowledge of fluid mechanics, heat transfer, mass transfer, chemical reaction kinetics, equipment design, plant design, process dynamics and control as well as process safety, economics, and management. It has an impact on essentially everything in our daily life from food processing to producing pharmaceutical drugs, generating fuels and even the manufacturing of silicon chips and other microelectronics. At the Chemical and Petroleum Engineering Department, we strive to help students see how a Chemical Engineering degree can accomplish their dreams and we establish the means to make it happen. The Chemical Engineering undergraduate program in the College of Engineering at the United Arab Emirates University is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
