Processing industry is one of the most important fields in modern industry. It includes plastics, heavy chemicals, fine chemicals, medicine, biomedicine, water, energy, food, and many others areas. Most production processes are either directly or indirectly related to chemical or physical processes. The development and application of safe, efficient, environment-friendly, cost-saving production processes calls for engineers with the ability to integrate knowledge and technology with physics, chemistry, math, and biology.
Unlike other engineers, the chemical engineer, has a profound understanding of molecular behavior and production at the macro level, and is able to integrate the two.
The eight-semester (four year) program trains students to perform a wide range of assignments in situations they will encounter as engineers, such as planning and developing new processes and products, optimizing existing products, production management, process control, economic analysis, research, and so forth.
There chemical engineering department offers three specialization tracks*:

* The opening of each track depends on the number of students who sign up each year.
SCE and the chemical engineering department maintain close ties with many branches in
