What will I learn?

The Division offers a four-year undergraduate programme leading to the Bachelor of Engineering degree in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, B.Eng. (CBE). Upon graduation, successful students will be awarded direct honors.

Our goal is to empower a new generation of chemical and biomolecular engineering graduates with the necessary skills to meet the challenges of the chemical and biomedical sciences industries in Singapore and the region.

The programme amalgamates principles of chemical engineering and life sciences (biology, biochemistry and genetics ) to facilitate the development of safe, profitable and environment friendly processes for the synthesis and manufacture of products from chemical / biological raw materials.

Student Learning Outcomes

The programme must demonstrate that by the time of graduation, the students have attained the following graduate attributes:

1) Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, natural science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.

2) Problem Analysis: Identify, formulate, research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.

3) Design/development of Solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.

4) Investigation: Conduct investigations of complex problems using research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.

5) Modern Tool Usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modeling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.

Career Prospects

Chemical and biomolecular engineers are in high demand in an emerging and knowledge based economy. The chemical and pharmaceutical sectors constitute a key part of Singapore’s constellation of industries. Other neighbouring countries are also focusing on industries that produce high value added products. Chemical and biomolecular engineers obtain a diverse training and hence possess the flexibility and versatility to adapt to different industrial fields. Graduates can find challenging opportunities in traditional as well as emerging engineering fields such as petrochemicals, bio-pharmaceuticals, specialty chemicals, food/flavours/fragrances, nanotechnology, biotechnology and others.
