Chemical Engineering is a broad discipline that brings pure chemistry to the engineering field to develop technology, to design, to operate and optimize chemical processes to produce commercial chemical products. Chemical engineering graduates work to make petrochemical products, polymers, microelectronics, fertilizers, biomedical equipment, paper, dyes, medicines and food.

Bioprocess Engineering is one of the specificities in the field of chemical engineering which aims to develop processes in producing products based on biological processes.

Chemical engineering professions offer career challenges in the chemical industry, oil and energy industry, environmental technology and others. Many Bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering get the highest salary among all other undergraduate level. More information about careers in chemical engineering can be found at:

Many scholars work in the oil and gas industry, chemical industry, EPC companies, food and consumer goods industries. The department has strong ties with the industry and many graduates are needed. On average, graduates get jobs within 3 months after graduation.

For undergraduate programs, math and science subjects and other supporting subjects offered by your school need to be well prepared.

The degree is given to students who have passed 145 credits with a minimum C score and a maximum of 6 years study time. Read the FTUI Academic Guidebook for detailed information and for master and doctoral level studies.
