The Department of Chemical Engineering was established in 2010 with an initial enrolment of 50 students. The department is located in close proximity and with access to one of the Pakistan’s largest concentration of industrial units relavent to major areas such as Chemical, Petroleum, Refining, Cement, Glass, Fertilizers, Textiles and Explosives and Ordinance. In addition, our resources include cutting edge defense research facilities with which we are collaborating for research and development. One of the areas of research the department will be focusing on is the development of energetic materials.
The department has gained considerable prestige and standing in the academic and industrial world due to a highly motivated and outstanding faculty, hardworking and dedicated supporting staff and well equipped dedicated laboratories covering every aspect of chemical engineering education. The graduates of this department contribute directly to the industrial and economic growth of the country & this region in particular.
The department is offering courses of study leading to a degree of Bachelor of Science of Chemical Engineering. The curriculum of the degree course is in line with the recommendation of Higher Education Commission. The objective of the courses is to prepare students for all activities related to the operation, design, maintenance, management and supervision of all chemical, bio-chemical and polymer plants. In addition to the conventional Chemical Engineering there is emphasis on pollution control and environmental processes, biochemical processes, materials science and material processing, heterogeneous catalysis, reaction engineering, engineering economics and entrepreneurial skills. Our vision to the future is based on flexibility and adaptability rather as locked into five specialties. At the department, we are conscious that our Chemical Engineering Graduates will be employed in industries based on nanotechnology, biotechnology and higher performance composite materials. Non- conventional lectures, talks and projects are therefore the part of our program where eminent experts in the relevant field are invited to deliver lectures/ seminars on the subject.
We are also aware of the global prospective of Chemical Engineering. The graduating students are encouraged, advised, assisted and recommended to apply for higher education/jobs both at national level and other developed countries.
Having a B.Sc. Chemical Engineering degree can make your career a bright one. Chemical engineering graduates have excellent employment prospects. They are employed by various national and multinational companies not only in Pakistan but their demand is also huge abroad. The graduates of Chemical Engineering are employed by,
