Chemical Engineering - Program Description

1. PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

1.1 Introduction

The Chemical and Material Engineering Department was founded in 2006 based on merging the Silicate Chemical Engineering Department established in 1978 and the Polymer Chemical Engineering Department established in 1990. 

The Chemical and Material Engineering Department offered Chemical Engineering program, which has the former name of Material Engineering, consisted of two main specializations: Silicate Chemical Engineering and Polymer Chemical Engineering. 

The training program of Chemical Engineering was initially based on the core program of the Ministry of Education and Training. In 2006, the program was changed to the credit system, consisting of 180 credits with a duration of 5 years. Then it decreased to 150 credits in 2012. Since 2015 the training duration has shortened to 4.5 years.

The program of Chemical Engineering belonging to the Chemical and Material Engineering Department has been built up and reviewed to improve teaching and learning quality for preparing the students with the best theoretical background, skills and technological expertise to contribute positively to the development of the chemical industry of the country and region Southeast Asia.
