MESSAGE OF HOS
School of Chemical Engineering, established in the year 2010 in Engineering Wing of The University of Faisalabad, has shown consistent growth in upgrading lab facilities as well as improving the quality of education. The School hires the services of highly qualified, experienced and dedicated faculty who are engaged in teaching and research activities.
The curriculum of the degree program in Chemical Engineering has been designed in the light of HEC/PEC guidelines along with keeping in view the requirements of the chemical industry in Pakistan and abroad. Student's training is conducted comprehensively to equip them with professional skills and knowledge for successful problem solving and challenges in the field. Our graduates display an outstanding performance in the practical field and some of them occupy key posts in the field. The School is endeavoring to organize alumni gatherings which is a source of inspiration for the students and also necessary for feedback regarding the quality of teaching in the School.
It is the policy of The University of Faisalabad that respective Schools should endeavor to groom the students not only as competent professionals, but also as responsible citizens to serve the community. The School strives to establish a balance between curricular and extra-curricular activities. Discipline of Chemical Engineering offers immense opportunities for chemical engineers in Pakistan and overseas.
I assure the prospective students of Chemical Engineering a very bright and prosperous future.

Chemical engineering is a discipline influencing numerous areas of technology. In broad terms, chemical engineers conceive and design processes to produce, transform and transport materials — beginning with experimentation in the laboratory followed by implementation of the technology in full-scale production.
Chemical engineers are in great demand because of the large number of industries that depend on the synthesis and processing of chemicals and materials. In addition to traditional careers in the chemical, energy and oil industries, chemical engineers enjoy increasing opportunities in biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, electronic device fabrication and environmental engineering. The unique training of the chemical engineer becomes essential in these areas when processes involve the chemical or physical transformation of matter.
For example, chemical engineers working in the chemical industry investigate the creation of new polymeric materials with important electrical, optical or mechanical properties. This requires attention not only to the synthesis of the polymer, but also to the flow and forming processes necessary to create a final product. In biotechnology, chemical engineers help design production facilities that use microorganisms and enzymes to synthesize new drugs. Problems in environmental engineering that engage chemical engineers include the development of processes (catalytic converters, effluent treatment facilities) to minimize the release of or deactivate products harmful to the environment.
To do these jobs, the chemical engineer must have a complete and quantitative understanding of both the engineering and scientific principles underlying these technological processes. This is reflected in the curriculum of the Chemical Engineering Department, which includes the study of applied mathematics, material and energy balances, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, energy and mass transfer, separations technologies, chemical reaction kinetics and reactor design, and process design. These courses are built on a foundation in the sciences of chemistry, physics and biology.
