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!

Discover a sustainable future
with chemical engineering
"My years in SP had been fulfilling. DCHE@SP not only prepared me to be a technically competent engineer, it had also given me ample opportunities to work and communicate effectively in a team-based environment. The industrial training in CPTC was particularly enriching, whereby I had to apply skills taught in classrooms to a live plant. My FYP had brought me and my group mates to Cambodia, where we had the chance to transform knowledge learnt in lectures to ideas that could possibly change the life of our users. Overall, the course not only provided me with a head start for my future studies, it had also prepared me to be life ready and world ready."
