Our mission is to provide a high-quality education in chemical engineering at the undergraduate and graduate levels to produce graduates with sufficient knowledge of the Chemical Engineering field. This covers the fundamentals of thermodynamics and physical chemistry; heat, mass, and momentum transfer and chemical reaction processes; chemical process design principles; modeling and computer simulation; selected chemical process industries; instrumentation and control; as well as process economics.
The department fulfills its commitment in achieving excellence both in education and research through:
- Providing high-quality undergraduate and graduate education that will prepare the graduates for leading roles and ability to continue learning.
- Generating knowledge and developing technology through excellence in research, in conjunction with graduate education, that are recognized by peers in the profession, in the interdisciplinary fields of chemical engineering.
- Allowing each student to shape his or her own career by choosing among different elective courses and graduation projects or suggesting her or his own project.
- Enhancing creative activities in research and fostering a community of learning and scholarship, to create new knowledge and technology.
