Course Details

Bachelor of Chemical Engineering with Honours

Xiamen University




  • Description

    Chemical Engineering (CE) is the branch of engineering that deals with chemical production and the manufacture of products through chemical processes. This includes the development, design and operation of chemical processes and plants for the extraction, conversion and recovery of materials with the minimum environmental impact.

    The CE programme at Xiamen University (XMU) is supported by the College of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, a renowned college with over 95 years' history. The affiliated Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering, the National Engineering Laboratory for Green Chemical Productions of Alcohols-Ethers-Esters, the State-Province Joint Engineering Laboratory of Power Source Technology for New Energy Vehicle, and the Engineering Research Center of Electrochemical Technology remain at the forefront of Chemical Engineering, in the fields of Process Control, Chemical Engineering Technology, Applied Catalysis, Biochemical Engineering, Membrane Technology, Petroleum Processing, Clean Energy, electrochemical power sources, electro-deposition surface treatment, corrosion science, biochips and advanced electrochemical instruments, etc. The college is supported by a strong faculty, among which there are 9 academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and 5 experts involved in Thousand Talents Plan, China's Recruitment Programme of Global Experts.

    The CE Programme at Xiamen University Malaysia (XMUM) equips the graduates to solve broadly-defined chemical engineering problems systematically, to reach substantiated conclusions using modern engineering tools, resources and techniques, to keep track of the cutting-edge development and the latest trend in this field, to apply analytical and critical thinking skills to plan and conduct experimental investigations, and to gain an understanding of the impact of engineering practices, taking into account the need for sustainable development.
