Welcome to Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering
Chemical and materials engineering is a fascinating discipline involved in building and sustaining the world around us as well as designing new materials for the future. If you are interested in converting raw materials into useful products or are fascinated by altering the chemical or physical state of a substance to create a better material - then our department may be the right place for you to further your study.
We provide a unique and stimulating learning and research environment, exposing students to a wide diversity of viewpoints and hands-on teaching/learning styles. Our goal is to prepare and train you with the skills needed to be leaders of the future to solve real-world, multidisciplinary problems.
