Academic Programme

Our Academic Programme

The students are expected to spend a total of five years to obtain the B. Eng. (Chemical Engineering) Degree. The programme structure is as follows:

  1. First-year: Common University Courses which include the basic sciences of Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology, the basic engineering courses of Engineering Drawing and Workshop Practice and general studies/ courses of Use of English and Social Sciences. These are accomplished through the formal University lectures, practical, assignments and examinations.
  2. Second-year: Common School of Engineering Courses of the second year. These courses are accomplished through the formal University lectures, practicals, tutorials, assignments and examinations. It is also followed by a three month industrial attachment period during the long vacation (SIWES 200).
    • The Chemical Engineering Programme Courses actually start in the second semester of the second year with CHE 202-Introduction to Chemical Engineering.
  3. Third-year: Common School of Engineering Courses and 300 level Chemical Engineering core courses. These are accomplished through formal University lectures, tutorials, practicals, assignments and examinations. It is also followed by a three-month industrial attachment period during the long vacation (SIWES 300).
  4. Fourth-year: 400 level core Chemical Engineering Courses are studied through the formal University lectures, tutorials, practicals, assignments and examinations during the first semester period, and in the second semester a four-month industrial attachment (SIWES 400). Another two-month industrial attachment (SIWES 401) is also undertaken during the long vacation. 
  5. Fifth-year: 500 level core Chemical Engineering Courses which come in the form of specialization courses, experimental and design projects, include electives which tend to broaden the technological base of the programme. These are also accomplished through the formal University lectures, tutorials, practicals, assignments and examinations. A final year B. Eng Thesis is submitted and defended by each graduating student.
