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!

with chemical engineering

"My time in SP has been a holistic one. I was given plenty of opportunities to learn to work as a group through various projects. This aided me in learning effective communication skills to work smoothly in a team. The Pilot Plants in SP were good for practical learning as these facilities showed me how to apply the knowledge learnt in lectures and classes to more real life situations. I also had the chance to take my internship in the University of Queensland which was an eye-opener to the field of research work abroad. CPTC provided me with insight to working in a real life plant and FYP taught me about troubleshooting waste management issues. These fruitful experiences showed me a broader perspective to the Chemical Engineering Industry to make me an engineer who is work ready, life ready and world ready."
