Faculty of Engineering & Architecture

Department of Chemical Engineering

The fundamental concept of Chemical Engineering is based on the processing of raw feedstock into valuable products used in daily life i.e. fuel for transportation, fertilizer for agro-industry, food processing, clean water production, cement for the construction industry and much more. Development of such products involves the application of engineering knowledge to develop the cost-effective, optimized and energy-efficient processing approach. Chemical Engineers learn and apply the basic and advanced engineering concepts of process and equipment designs, cost estimation, process control and optimization for the transformation of pilot-scale projects to large scale industrial processes. Graduates of Chemical Engineering have exciting opportunities in i.e. R&D, processing, quality, environmental and health safety in national and multinational organizations. Chemical Engineers equipped with knowledge of the latest technology for process plant design can offer consultancies to the industries to get maximum profit via optimized processing.

The BS Chemical Engineering program was started in September 2005 with just four faculty members and fourteen students under the umbrella of Faculty of Engineering at Takatu Campus with high spirit and expectation to produce Chemical Engineering graduates as a trained human resource for national and international processing industries. Today, the Chemical Engineering Department has twenty-one faculty members; most of them are foreign qualified from the best universities in the world. The department has a growing, vibrant, research-oriented faculty who take great pride in research and education. The department has various state of the art laboratories, where students and faculty are engaged in cutting edge research in the field of Nanotechnology, Algal cultivation, Biomass and bioenergy, Waste management for recovery of valuable products, Wastewater treatment and Polymer composites. Currently, the Department is offering BS and MS program in Chemical Engineering.

Moreover, collaboration with industries, the major stakeholders, will strengthen regarding research. The team at the department is also working on a collaboration with international researchers from world-leading institutes to share the knowledge of research areas of their interest.


To be among the leading Chemical Engineering Department of the country with programs providing quality graduates for the chemical and allied industry with focus on the research and development.


The Department of Chemical Engineering is committed to establish conducive environment for the professional education and research in the field of Chemical Engineering addressing the needs of the country and region.
