MS and PhD Chemical Engineering
The School of Chemical & Material Engineering (SCME) offers MS Chemical Engineering. MS Program started in Fall 2012 .The chemical engineering curriculum is designed so that its graduates are familiar with the techniques used in analyzing and solving engineering problems associated with the chemical and related industries (petroleum, pharmaceutical, metallurgical, plastics, pollution control etc.).
Courses in chemical engineering fundamentals (material and energy balances) are introduced, followed by intensive work in engineering science and analysis (heat, mass, and momentum transfer; chemical thermodynamics; chemical reaction engineering; continuous and stage-wise separation processes; process dynamics and control). Computer solutions and simulation topics are stressed. An understanding of the ethical, and social issues, economic, and safety considerations in engineering practice is stressed throughout the curriculum. The appreciation of these professional concepts is incorporated as a part of all engineering course work.
The rationale of MS Program has been worked out after looking into the market demands, national issues and requirement of the R&D. After graduating, the students will meet the industry demands in Chemical & Petroleum industry.


This curriculum is designed to impart knowledge, skills and training in order to prepare graduates to have:
  • Understanding of the needs of the society and demands of the 21st century and be able to improve quality of life
  • Understanding of the principles of chemical engineering design and their application for sustainable development
  • Ability to understand, analyze, interpret and solve problems of chemical and allied industries by using modern techniques, engineering tools, research and innovation
  • Understanding of safety principles and practices in process industries
  • Understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities
  • Knowledge of contemporary issues and ability to work in multidisciplinary teams
  • Leadership skills to serve on managerial positions within chemical and associated industries
  • Understanding of life cycle environmental impacts of chemical and allied industries and their mitigation measures
  • Effective communication of technical knowledge, skills and training
  • Motivation to maintain and raise their level of engineering competence and achievement by engaging in lifelong learning
