BSc Chemical Engineering

Turning concepts into reality

Chemical engineering originated with a need to transform raw materials to useful products. Chemical engineers use the principles of engineering analysis and knowledge of chemistry to design, build and operate processes that provide society with items such as petroleum and petrochemical products, pharmaceuticals, food products and computer chips.


This programme educates students in chemical engineering by promoting interdisciplinary collaboration with other fields. At the end of this programme, you can expect to become a well-trained, competent engineer, capable of responding to the current and future needs of the chemical and process industries.


The programme is reinforced with structured industrial visits and placement opportunities. While working during the placement, students undertake many assignments to reflect their academic studies related to the context of a process plant. Locally the college is supported by a large number of chemical industries and other companies to allow for an enriching placement experience.

Career Opportunities

Career opportunities exist in a wide variety of industries including refineries, petrochemicals, polymers, water resources development and recycling, process design and simulation, natural gas processing, desalination, air and water pollution control, research and development, environmental health and safety, industries, fertilisers, cement, biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, pulp and paper and food processing industries.


Students who successfully complete this programme will be eligible for an internationally recognised Bachelor of Science Degree awarded by VIT University, Vellore, India. The BSc Degree awarded after Level 4 is equivalent to the Bachelor Degree in Engineering (Oman), conforming to the Oman Qualifications Framework.
