Chemical and Petrochemical Engineering Program (CPE)
The chemical and petrochemical engineering program is looking for strengthen its position in areas where it is viewed as preeminent, including: chemical process industries, unit operation, separation processes, transport phenomena, catalysis and reaction engineering, pharmaceutical engineering, advanced process modeling and process simulations. Continue to build upon our strong foundation in areas including green chemistry, clean production and renewable energy (e.g., solar, biofuels, energy storage) and to some extent in pharmaceutical and biomedical engineering, with the aim of becoming recognized as a top-tier program for education and research in these areas.
- Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the fundamentals, basic characteristics and features of organic and inorganic reactions, and their application in chemical process industries including petroleum refining, natural gas processing, petrochemicals industry, electrochemistry, fertilizers and ceramics, etc.
- Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the principles of chemical engineering including chemical reaction equilibrium and thermodynamics; mass and energy balance; transport processes; separation processes, mechanical unit operations and process control.
- Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of general principles of design techniques specific to particular products and processes including reactor and vessel design.
- Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of environmental impact of various industries, waste minimization and treatment of industrial facilities.
- Integrate processing steps into a sequence and apply analysis technique such as energy and mass balance.
- Collect data, draw simplified equipment flow sheets, charts and curves and interpret data derived from laboratory observation.
- Perform complete mass and energy balances for chemical engineering plants.
- Conduct troubleshooting in chemical engineering plants.
- Use chemical engineering IT tools and programming in design.
- Determine the characteristics and performance of measurement and control systems.
