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!

Chemical Engineering Workshop


Science for building a sustainable future

"The rigorous DCHE curriculum in SP is recognised by the industry and tertiary institutions worldwide has been beneficial to my academic and personal development. CDIO, Design Thinking and Flipped Classrooms are integrated in various modules have made learning more dynamic for me. An internship at the University of Canterbury exposed me to an overseas educational and research environment. A local industrial attachment at Solvay Specialty Chemicals allowed me to apply theoretical knowledge and practical skills gained from the course to develop and optimise existing processes and systems. In short, the experiential learning in DCHE has prepared me in meeting future challenges.“
