The Department of Chemical Engineering runs a 2-year master’s programme leading to either MSc or MPhil degree and a 3-year doctorate programme leading to PhD Degree.


The primary objective of our programmes is to prepare highly qualified chemical engineers capable of finding solutions to technological problems in the chemical and allied processing industries in order to satisfy the needs and desires of society.

However, mindful of the peculiarities of our environment and times, characterised by dwindling avenues for wage employment in the formal sector, diminishing natural resources and fast degradation of the environment, an essential focus of the training proramme has been to equip the graduates with the necessary skills to enabled them to enter into self-employment by judiciously harnessing and processing our natural resources. The programmes also seek to give the graduates as broad technical and general background as possible.
