The core of chemical engineering curriculum is made up of variable courses. These courses are designated to enable students to grasp the basic concepts, ideas and approaches relevant to the topic. Problems classes take place in smaller groups and through tackling problems reinforce and develop students’ understanding of the subject. This program involves lectures, labs, and seminars. The courses are organized into the following areas, which will be covered within 10 semesters (minimum of 160 credits), where each semester continues for sixteen weeks, including programs such as labs and examination periods.
- Humanity Sciences
- Foundation Sciences
- Basic Engineering Sciences
- Chemical Engineering Compulsory Courses:
- Fundamentals of Chemical Engineering
- Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics
- Heat and Mass Transfer
- Petroleum Refining ,Chemical and Petrochemical Industries
- Chemical Reaction Engineering
- Process Control and Instrumentation
- Corrosion Engineering, and Safety and Environment
- Process and Plant Design
In addition, the student is required to accomplish a dissertation project.
Programme of the Bachelor Degree in Chemical Engineering
Teaching is a combination of lectures, tutorials, seminars, computer practice sessions and a hands-on laboratory practical component.
Assessment is by class tests, laboratory reports, project reports, oral presentations, closed book examinations, and interviews. Teaching and assessment methods may vary from module to module.
Design projects bring together all the subjects student has learned on the programme, giving you the opportunity to apply the knowledge and techniques you have been studying.
