B.Eng (Hons.) Chemical Engineering


The Bachelor of Chemical Engineering degree program, also known as the BKC program, was initiated in 2002 and approved by Ministry of Higher Education on 19 March 2002. This program requires students to complete 130 credits, usually within four years. This program has been developed not only to provide students with the knowledge of chemical engineering, but also to give them exposure to aspects of humanities and social sciences through subjects such as English language and foreign languages, entrepreneurship and other non-engineering subjects. The first intake of BKC consisted of 58 students who enrolled in the 2002/2003 academic session. To date, the program has successfully produced more than 600 graduates. The BKC course is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC) and underwent its first accreditation audit in 2006.


 PEO1 Our graduates will demonstrate the foundation and depth for successful chemical/gas engineering careers in industry, academia or government.
PEO2 Our graduates will demonstrate the foundation and breadth to obtain, apply and transfer knowledge across diciplines and into emerging areas of chemical/gas engineering and related fields.
PEO3 Our graduates will demonstrate the effective communications, leadership and teamworking skills.
PEO4 Our graduates will demonstrate that they have a sense of responsibility, are ethical in the conduct of their profession, and have an appreciation for the impact of their profession on society.
