Course Intake:


Chemical engineers are always in demand as the industry and business rely on chemicals to create products for manufacturing. Typical examples include fertilizer production for farming and agricultural sectors; manufacture of cosmetics, fi ne chemicals, and pharmaceutical products; oil and petrochemical products; and many other everyday goods.

The rise of green initiatives such as bio-based manufacturing, global challenges on sustainability under energy, food and water are also providing opportunities for chemical engineers in these rapidly emerging areas. The recycling industry will also continue to grow as natural resources continue to dwindle and pollution control for sustainable development becoming more and more important. Thus being the case, there will be a constant demand for chemical engineers.

The SEGi BEng (Hons) in Chemical Engineering programme is crafted to produce graduates who are able to practise as an engineer in industries related to chemical engineering in the global market.

Not only will they have all the necessary technical competence required of the discipline, they will be trained to model problems, formulate solutions based on a system approach and conduct research, among many other qualities instilled through the degree programme.

This programme has been approved by the Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC).

The Washington Accord is an international agreement among bodies responsible for accrediting engineering degree programmes. It recognises the substantial equivalency of programmes accredited by those bodies and recommends that graduates of programmes accredited by any of the signatory bodies be recognized by the other bodies as having met the academic requirements for entry to the practice of engineering.

Programme Objectives:

The programme aims to produce:

  • Graduates who are able to practice as an engineer in industries related to chemical engineering globally.
  • Graduates who are able to pursue postgraduate studies.
  • Graduates who are able to register with BEM and subsequently become a professional engineer in Chemical Engineering

Programme Learning Outcomes:

Graduates are expected to demonstrate the following outcomes:

Engineering Knowledge – Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialisation to the solution of complex engineering problems.
Problem Analysis – Identify and analyse complex engineering problems, research literature and formulate substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.

  • Design/Development of Solutions – Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  • Investigation – Conduct investigation into complex problems using research based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of information to provide valid conclusions.
  • Modern Tool Usage – Create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to complex engineering activities, with an understanding of the limitations.
  • The Engineer and Society – Apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice.
  • Environment and Sustainability – Understand the impact of professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts and demonstrate knowledge of and a need for sustainable development.
  • Ethics – Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice.
  • Communication – Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
  • Individual and Team Work – Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams and in multi-disciplinary settings.
  • Life-long Learning – Recognise the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
  • Project Management and Finance – Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments

Career Opportunity

Chemical engineers have exciting career opportunities and can gain work in areas including chemical and allied products, environmental engineering, contracting, oil and gas, consultancy, pharmaceuticals, energy, water, food and beverage, materials and design.
