Masters in Chemical Engineering

Chemical engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with manufacturing products through chemical processes and the technologies of chemical production. Chemical engineering is based on a combination of physical sciences, life sciences, mathematics and economics. Chemical engineering deals with a number of chemical processes from the design, manufacture and operation of plants and machineries to performing tests and ensuring that safety issues related to the environment, the process and the product are considered at all stages. Some of the sub-disciplines of chemical engineering are: ceramic engineering, crystal engineering, drilling engineering, petroleum engineering.

Students enrolled in a Bachelor’s degree or Master’s degree in chemical engineering will gain main skills, such as: to evaluate equipment and processes to ensure compliance with safety and environmental regulations, critical thinking and the ability to use scientific rules and methods to solve problems.

Graduates of chemical engineering degrees can choose job opportunities like: chemical engineer, energy engineer, petroleum engineer, product development scientist, analytical chemist, mining engineer, chemical technician, materials scientist, nuclear engineer, health and safety specialist, and work in many industries, especially oil and petrochemical industry, nuclear energy, food production.
