Department of Chemical Engineering

The Chemical Engineering Department aims to provide a world class education inchemical engineering and related disciplines to produce engineers and future leaders who are capable of meeting or exceeding the needs and expectations in business, industry and academia in chemical engineering education, research and development. This is accomplished by providing appropriate mechanisms for technical exchange, collaboration, and employment of students. The department currently offers a BSc degree in Chemical Engineering.

Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) in Chemical Engineering

The Chemical Engineering Program at KU prepares students not only to make chemistry happen but also to master physical and biological processes. Synthesis skills and creativity are assessed throughout the study period. The program prepares the graduates to become entrepreneurs, researchers, and managers in various fields such as petroleum, food, and pharmaceutical industries. The program incorporates extensive laboratory work and computer process simulation in order to reinforce the principles and concepts used in the classroom. The program requires 136 credits to graduate, which are distributed as follows: 26 credits in General Education requirements, 73 credits in Engineering Topics requirements, and 37 credits in Mats and Basic Sciences requirements. The Chemical Engineering program at KU is accredited by the Commission for Academic Accreditation (CAA) of the Ministry of Education’s Higher Education Affairs Division in the United Arab Emirates and by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET in the United States.

Master of Science in Chemical Engineering (M.Sc. in CE)

The degree of Master of Science in Chemical Engineering (M.Sc. in CE) is awarded for successfully completing the requirements of a program of study, which includes taught courses as well as thesis. The thesis is an independent investigation of specialized areas within the general field of chemical engineering and associated disciplines. The M.Sc. in CE gives candidates the opportunity to deepen their knowledge in the broad field of CE and contribute to the process of discovery and knowledge creation through the conduct of original research. Candidates for this degree are taught and supervised by experienced faculty and are expected to demonstrate initiative in their approach and innovation in their work. In addition to successfully completing the taught course component of the program, candidates prepare and present a thesis on their chosen area. Research may be undertaken in several topics corresponding to the areas of focus identified by the University.
