Chemical engineering works principally in the chemical industry to convert basic raw materials into a variety of products, and deals with the design and operation of chemical plant and Equipment.
The principle knowledge in chemical engineering includes design, manufacture and operation of industrial chemicals and related, development of new chemicals or adapted substances and processes for products ranging from foods and beverages to cosmetics, cleaners and pharmaceutical ingredients, also development of new technologies such as fuel cells, hydrogen power and nanotechnology.
The working in fields derived from chemical engineering includes material science, polymer engineering, and biomedical engineering, membrane technology, water and wastewater treatment industry.
Here are the Programme Educational Objectives (PEO):
PEO 1: Graduates to be employed in relevant Engineering field.
PEO 2: Graduates to have sustainable career progression in relevant Engineering field.
PEO 3: Graduates to engage in lifelong learning via continuous personal development.
Students who have successfully completed the study will be awarded B.Eng certificate from SEGi and M.Eng certificate from UCLan.
Programme Learning Outcomes (PO) :
PO1 Engineering Knowledge
Apply knowledge of mathematics, natural science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialisation as specified in WK1 to WK4 respectively to the solution of complex engineering problems
PO2 Problem Analysis
Identify, formulate, conduct research literature and analyse complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences (WK1 to WK4)
PO3 Design/Development of Solutions
Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations (WK5)
Conduct investigation of complex engineering problems using research-based knowledge (WK8) and research methods, including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of information to provide valid conclusions
PO5 Modern Tool Usage
Create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to complex engineering problems, with an understanding of the limitations (WK6)
PO6 The Engineer and Society
Apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice and solutions to complex engineering problems (WK7)
PO7 Environment and Sustainability
Understand and evaluate the sustainability and impact of professional engineering work in the solutions of complex engineering problems in societal and environmental contexts. (WK7)
Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice (WK7)
PO9 Individual and Team Work
Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams and in multidisciplinary settings
Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions
PO11 Project Management and Finance
Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering management principles and economic decision-making and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects in multidisciplinary environments
PO12 Life Long Learning
Recognise the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change
