WELCOME TO THE DEPARTMENT OF CHEMICAL ENGINEERING.
The department of Chemical
Engineering was established in 2013 with the view of producing technicians and
technologist who should be capable of carrying out and supervising Chemical and
production Processes in Chemical Engineering based industries. The department
admitted the first set of ND students in 2015/16 academic sessions.
PHILOSOPHY AND OBJECTIVES OF THE DEPARTMENT.
The vision of the department is to develop high
quality programmes of teaching and research that will enable our students to
play leading roles in the chemical, biochemical, petroleum, materials and
environmental industries and to educate future generations of our discipline.
At ND level, we aim to provide our students with solid
technical competence, social responsibility and analytical skills required to
solve modern challenges and self-sustaining technological
advancement. This we hope to achieve through academic programme seeking to
address the following:
i. Basic understanding of concepts and principles related to
applied sciences as a foundation for further studies.
ii. Basic concepts and principles of Chemical Engineering such as
material and energy balance, unit operations, unit processes, process
iii. Ability to read and interpret drawings related to plant
layout, process equipment and components.
iv. Knowledge of various materials used in chemical processes,
their properties and specifications.
v. Ability to calculate the quantity of raw materials, energy
inputs, manpower requirement and output from production process.
Appreciation of the need of clean environment, safety
regulations and industrial accidents preventive procedures in process
Proficiency in the use of computers and its application to
solve common engineering problems.
Knowledge of testing and quality control activities to ensure
conformity with standards.
Our educational training covers the areas of
specialization like Biochemical Engineering, Environmental and Energy Engineering,
Thermodynamics, Heat and Mass Transfer, Petrochemical/Petroleum Engineering,
Reaction Engineering, Unit Operations, Process Economics and Design, Process
Control and Optimisation, Polymer Engineering.
