What will I learn?

Department of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering is in the Top 10 Chemical Engineering Department in the World. As one of the largest chemical engineering departments in the world and the oldest chemical engineering department in Singapore, we enjoy the luxury of being strong in both classical domains and emerging areas in chemical and biomolecular engineering. We have more than 5000 alumni, with some in top-level positions in industry and government.

The four-year B.Eng. (Chemical Engineering) programme at NUS educates 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. 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). Chemical engineering differs from chemistry and applied chemistry programmes, with its emphasis on industrial applications of chemical reactions, separations and techniques for designing and operating economical, safe and environmentally benign processes.
