 Department of Chemical Engineering

Chemical engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with the application of physical science (e.g. chemistry and physics), with mathematics, to the process of converting raw materials or chemicals into more useful or valuable forms. In addition to producing useful materials, chemical engineering is also concerned with pioneering valuable new materials and techniques, an important form of research and development.

Chemical engineering largely involves the design and maintenance of chemical processes for large-scale manufacture. Chemical engineers in this branch are usually employed under the title of process engineer. The development of the large-scale processes characteristic of industrialized economies is a feat of chemical engineering, not chemistry. Indeed, chemical engineers are responsible for the availability of the modern high-quality materials that are essential for running an industrial economy.

Due to intense industrial activities in Petrochemical Plants in our country, the Chemical Engineering Department has been established in 2005 and is acting under the cooperation of two faculties of Mechanical Engineering and Chemistry.

One of the unique features of this faculty is that all fields are completely applied and students graduating this faculty are all employed in the Industry. In other words, the rate of unemployment for students of this faculty is almost zero. In addition to the present M.Sc. and Ph.D. fields some other fields like structure and body of vehicles, suspension and steering mechanisms, nuclear engineering, energy systems, and two other sub- fields in material‌ engineering ‌will ‌be added in near future.
