Graduates may apply to pursue advanced study leading to a Master of Science Degree in Chemical Engineering provided he/she has obtained the required averages in the undergraduate programs of study, either immediately following the BS degree or after completing the BE degree. The Faculty Admissions Committee makes the final decision about student entry into the Master of Science Program. Entry to the Chemical Engineering graduate program requires an average of at least 80.
The graduate program at the department of Chemical Engineering offers the following tracks:
Petroleum engineers are engaged in different aspects of oil exploration and development, from identifying and characterizing the reservoir through drilling and completion to production. Petroleum engineers also discover new ways to extract oil and gas from older wells. We offer courses that cover both upstream and downstream operations and will prepare graduates for careers in petroleum and energy-resource fields. Our Petroleum and Drilling Engineering labs feature state of the art units that enable students to determine different properties of oil and even to perform a full drilling simulation!
Industrial Processes Engineering
Industrial Processes Engineering integrates in-depth knowledge of core areas of process engineering, such as polymerization, separations, transport, and reaction processes. Courses in this track prepare graduates to play a vital role in designing and developing new materials, optimizing existing processes, and elaborating sustainable energy systems. This is a genuinely remarkable track that will enable students to work in a wide range of industries.
Food Processing equips students with a solid understanding of food process engineering, and transferable skills in massive demand in the market. Food process engineers are engaged in the development of food processes and products. Food Processing courses give students the theoretical and practical knowledge required in the food industry, which, combined with suitable industrial training and experience, can help launch graduates on the path towards becoming leading engineers in the food industry.
