Chemical engineering is a branch of engineering that deals with the conversion of raw materials to useful products by applying the principles of science and engineering. It involves the design, operation, and maintenance of facilities ranging from refineries, petrochemical, pharmaceutical plants, and nuclear-waste processing plants, through to food and materials facilities.

Chemical engineers develop, design, and operate different kinds of manufacturing processes, applying the principles of chemistry, physics, biology, mathematics, and engineering to solve issues in a wide variety of industrial fields efficiently, cost effectively, and in an environmentally friendly way.

During the Chemical Engineering  program from Abu Dhabi University you will be given the opportunity to design and conduct laboratory experiments, use industry-specific software for process simulation and design, and integrate all theoretical and practical knowledge gained through the design of a chemical processing plant in your final year. In addition, you will round up your Chemical engineering education through a carefully selected two month internship in one of the many relevant industries in the UAE or abroad.
