Programme Description

PROGRAM EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES (PEO)

  1. Graduates apply the broaden and in-depth knowledge of Chemical & Petroleum Engineering to analyse the practical problems and think creatively to generate innovative solutions using appropriate technologies
  2. Graduates make valid judgement, synthesize information from a range of sources and communicate them in ways appropriate to discipline
  3. Graduates sustain intellectual curiosity and know how to continue to learn not only areas that are relevant to Chemical & Petroleum Engineering, but also that are important to society
  4. Graduates adapt to different roles and responsibilities in multicultural working environment by respecting diversity, professionalism and ethical practices, and demonstrate leaderships in solving emerging engineering problems within the organization and society at national and international levels

COURSE LEARNING (PROGRAM) OUTCOMES

  1. Apply scientific and engineering principles to process engineering design and development, including sound risk management, environmental and OHS practice.
  2. Think critically and creatively to generate innovative and optimum solutions.
  3. Identify, evaluate and synthesise information from a range of sources to optimise process engineering design and development.
  4. Communicate effectively in ways appropriate to the discipline, audience and purpose.
  5. Use appropriate information and process technologies (recognising their advantages and limitations) in the design and development of sustainable process systems.
  6. Engage in continuous education, training and research, and take control of their own learning and development.
  7. Recognise and apply international standards and best practice in process engineering.
  8. Demonstrate respect for cultural diversity.
  9. Be ‘career ready’ for the process engineering profession, demonstrate leadership qualities, and work ethically and professionally both within a team and independently.
