The curriculum of the Chemical Engineering program of the National University of Sciences and Technology is designed so that its graduates are familiar with the techniques used in analyzing and solving engineering problems associated with the chemical and related industries (petroleum, pharmaceutical, metallurgical, plastics, pollution control etc.).


Courses in chemical engineering fundamentals (material and energy balances) are introduced, followed by intensive work in engineering science and analysis (heat, mass, and momentum transfer; chemical thermodynamics; chemical reaction engineering; continuous and stage-wise separation processes; process dynamics and control). Computer solutions and simulation topics are stressed. An understanding of the ethical, and social issues, economic, and safety considerations in engineering practice is stressed throughout the curriculum. The appreciation of these professional concepts is incorporated as a part of all engineering course work.

The rationale of the Chemical Engineering program of the National University of Sciences and Technology has been worked out after looking into the market demands, national issues and requirement of the R&D. After graduating, the students will meet the industry demands in Chemical & Petroleum industry.
