Goal and Objectives:



The general goal of Undergraduate Training Programme in Chemical Engineering is training highly qualified workforce with creative thought, professional responsible, being able to adapt with working environment, having capability of self-learning and updating with incessant development of the science and technology, having health, political quality, awareness of serving people, for chemical engineering and related fields.

In details, the objective of this training programme is providing graduation students with knowledge specialized in application areas of chemical engineering, attaching special importance to development of calculation, design and technical capabilities in the study field, with skills of creative thought, judgement, communication, and other professional ones. After a certain period of graduation, chemical engineers are expected to be successful in the following aspects:

  1. Becoming a proficient expert in chemical engineering, having capability of shaping idea, design, implement and operation of complicated and high-technological production lines.
  2. Being able to continue study at higher education levels (master, PhD).
  3. Having capability of leading, management with wide vision and knowledge on contemporary issues.
  4. Having professional working behaviour, ethic and social responsibility, capability of self-training and desire of long life studying.
