Chemical Engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with the application of physical science (e.g., chemistry and physics), and life sciences (e.g., biology, microbiology and biochemistry) with mathematics and economics, to the process of converting raw materials or chemicals into more useful or valuable forms. In addition to producing useful materials, modern chemical engineering is also concerned with pioneering valuable new materials and techniques – such as nanotechnology, fuel cells and biomedical engineering.
The Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering programme at the Nanyang Technological University aims to produce a new generation of chemical and biomolecular engineering graduates with the necessary skills to meet the challenges of the chemical and biomedical sciences industries in Singapore and the world. Our accredited undergraduate programme incorporates biomolecular engineering and physical sciences with chemical engineering principles. Students can choose to major in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering with Business Minor, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering/Economics Double degree. Our students can also take a minor in various fields from other schools in the university. Since found in 2004, we have attracted the best students from Singapore and the region. Our fresh graduates have achieved one of the highest employment rate and gross monthly salary in Singapore. At the post-graduate level, we offer a doctoral degree program in Chemical Engineering.
Our faculties from around the world are conducting vibrant interdisciplinary research on nanotechnology and catalysis, cellular and molecular engineering, bioproduct engineering, as well as basic chemical science and engineering. We have won two 10-million competitive research programmes funded by National Research Foundation, Singapore. Our young chemical engineering programme is ranked 49 in the world on QS chemical engineering ranking (2011).
