The programme includes courses aimed at process design of different production systems such as food processing systems, fertilizers, rubber, fibres, and fuels. There is now a growing field of biomedical engineering involving chemical engineers in the development of specialized polymeric materials for use in artificial arms, legs, and other human organs. Thus, the programme is designed to provide an abroad technical basis with an emphasis on material balances, energy balances, separation processes, rate processes, unit operations, and process economics and design.
