The four-year B.Eng. Chemical Engineering programme at National University of Singapore educates budding engineers to design, develop, and operate chemical processes by which chemicals, petroleum products, food, pharmaceuticals and consumer goods can be produced economically and safely with minimal environmental impact.


Chemical processes involve reactions, heat transfer, separations and biological phenomena to produce useful and valuable products. Accordingly, they study changes in the composition, energy content and/or state of aggregation of materials taking into consideration the nature of matter and its properties (chemistry), the forces that act on matter (physics), similar aspects of biological materials (biology), and the relationships between them (mathematics). 

Chemical Engineering at National University of Singapore differs from chemistry and applied chemistry programmes, with its emphasis on industrial applications of chemical reactions, separations and techniques for designing and operating economical, safe and environmentally benign processes.

Programme educational objectives  (PEOs)

  • Excel in careers in petro/chemical, bio/pharmaceutical, food, biotechnology, microelectronics, energy, materials or other industries that require strong analytical and problem-solving skills.
  • Pursue advanced degrees or certifications in engineering, computing, data analytics, safety, business, and medicine.
  • Display leadership with contemporary and global outlook.
  • Continue to demonstrate high-level of (a) professionalism, ethical and social responsibility, and (b) independent learning, and desire for life-long learning.
