The Chemical Engineering department has been established in 2008 to provide graduates that will have careers in modern industries such as manufacturing, pulp and paper, petrochemicals, food processing, advanced materials and polymers, and many other industries. A wide range of these industries already exists in the Sultanate and in the region.
A track in Petroleum engineering has been emphasized in the program through a set of courses leading to a minor in Petroleum engineering. The new Chemical Engineering Department at the College of Engineering will offer two undergraduate degrees: the Diploma in Chemical Engineering degree and Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Chemical Engineering degree.
The objectives of the program are to:
The curriculum is designed to comply with the requirements of accreditation ABET. It includes courses in basic sciences and mathematics, engineering sciences, engineering design, English composition, and the humanities and social sciences. Laboratory hands-on experiences and emphasis on design are important elements that are integrated throughout the curriculum.
The requirements pertaining to Criterion 4 (Professional Component) of the ABET EC2000 specify subject areas appropriate to engineering but do not prescribe specific courses. Students must be prepared through the curriculum for engineering practice culminating in a major design experience based on the knowledge and skills acquired in earlier coursework and incorporating engineering standards and realistic constraints that include most of the following considerations: economic, sustainability, manufacturability, environmental, ethical, health and safety, social, and political. The professional component must include:
The CHE program, like other CE programs, satisfies the above-mentioned ABET EC2000 requirements. This includes:
The curriculum is designed to allow students that successfully complete the first two years of their study to receive a diploma, as well as the Bachelor of Science degree upon the successful completion of the four-year program.
