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.
