Chemical Engineering

Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng)
School of Engineering

The Chemical Engineering program is designed to train engineers who can cater to the needs of the bio/Petro-chemical industry of Nigeria and beyond.

It prepares students for productive careers in both public and private sectors. It also serves as a sound foundation for graduate studies. The broad goal is to train budding engineers to design, develop, and operate chemical processes by which chemicals, petroleum products, food, pharmaceuticals, and consumer goods can be produced economically and safely with minimal environmental impact.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The program emphasizes chemical engineering fundamentals while offering opportunities for focused studies in bioengineering, energy, and environmental engineering. With crude oil accounting for well over 90 percent of Nigeria's foreign reserve, much of which is sold as raw crude to refineries abroad, the country could derive more revenue from this natural resource if by-products of national refineries could be turned into other useful products such as plastics and pharmaceuticals.

In addition, Chemical Engineering students acquire the necessary background and skills to design and develop functional products that benefit society in many ways. Chemical processes involve reactions, heat transfer, separations and biological phenomena to produce useful and valuable products. Accordingly, they study changes in the composition, energy content and/or state of aggregation of materials, taking into consideration the nature of matter and its properties (chemistry), the forces that act on matter (physics), similar aspects of biological materials (biology), and the relationships between them (mathematics).
