Beyond the confines of the classroom


Chemical engineering is the discipline where sciences are combined with applied mathematics and engineering principles. It takes laboratory ideas and turns them into value-added products in cost-effective, safe and cutting-edge processes for the chemical industry.


Some famous chemical engineers in history include John McKeen, who designed the first industrial-scale production of penicillin via deep-tank fermentation that saved thousands of soldiers’ lives during World War II; and Carl Bosch who invented the Haber-Bosch process to produce ammonia, a critical ingredient in synthetic fertilisers that enable us to produce enough food to feed the Earth’s growing population.


Join us if you aspire to be like the above prominent chemical engineers who make real, significant impacts in improving our world for a better tomorrow!

"The three years spent in Singapore Polytechnic were definitely an unforgettable experience and I felt that SP Chemical Engineering was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. With the course's recognised and rigorous curriculum, I have learnt how to handle stress to meet tight deadlines and manage my time more wisely. The many projects and presentations helped to simulate the real-life working environment. They have also helped me improve my communication skills and made me a better team player."
