Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering BS(Chemical Engineering)


CUI Lahore Campus is pioneer in offering semester system based four years bachelor degree in Chemical Engineering. Duration of this degree program is a minimum of eight semesters. Bachelor in Chemical Engineering is a cutting edge competitive degree due to global wide industrial expansion being grasped by this discipline. The prime location of the campus in the industrial area provides a provision for strong liaison with various industries.

This program is primarily aimed at applying chemical engineering principles to develop technical products and to design, control and improve industrial processes. Students also learn to take environmental and safety issues into account during all phases of the process (research, development, design and operation).Two guiding principles of sustainable development - the rational exploitation of resources and energy, and the application of the best available technology - are emphasized.

While students should have a foundational knowledge of chemistry, the underlying chemistry of the elements and components, their properties and mutual reactions are not the main focal points of the program. Course work in chemical engineering provides balanced training in all aspects of chemical engineering principles and practices. Courses are specifically designed to emphasize fundamentals, with systematic application to the process needs, design & development, operation, simulation & modeling, engineering solutions to ever increasing technological wishful desires. Learning process heavily emphasizes on chemical engineering applications; facilitated by classical amalgamation of Islamic ethics, chemistry, physics, mathematics, communication skills, and computer literacy, economics, and management techniques. Some of the core courses of chemical engineering are Fluid and Particle Mechanics, Chemical Engineering Heat Transfer Operations, Chemical Engineering Mass Transfer Operations, Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics, Instrumentation & Process Control, and Chemical Reaction Engineering.


  • To provide chemical engineering students with a strong technical education and communication skills that will enable them to have successful careers in a wide range of industrial and professional environments.
  • To prepare chemical engineering students for rapidly changing technological environments with the core knowledge central to multidisciplinary development and personal improvement throughout their professional careers.
  • To instill in chemical engineering students a strong sense of humanistic values and professionalism such that they can conduct ethically and knowledgeably regarding technological impact in societal issues.


COMSATS Institute of information Technology has a team of mostly foreign qualified faculty, which is drawn largely from the academia as well as from industry ensuring that links with the academia and commercial worlds are maintained and that students work on real world problems.


Chemical Engineers are required to work in a wide variety of positions for engineering consulting firms, process industries, research laboratories, wastewater and water treatment facilities, manufacturing facilities, governmental agencies, and other organizations requiring individuals to work in chemical and environment related positions. The demand for professionals capable of performing tasks such as sample collection, monitoring, data management, and instrumentation calibration, operation and maintenance of chemical plants creates the need of Chemical Engineers.

Career Prospects

Wide employment opportunities await chemical engineers in the public as well as private sector. Jobs in areas such as processing, operations or manufacturing, research and development, design and construction, finance and teaching are globally available. A management degree, along with BS in Chemical Engineering, is a desirable option for jobs relating to marketing.

As a chemical engineer you will predominantly work in industrial branches involved in (the production of) bulk and specialty chemicals, oil and natural gas (petrochemical companies and refineries), energy, waste treatment, food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology. You may be involve in the following professional activities:

Design, planning and building of installations (project engineer)

Monitoring and optimization of existing processes (process engineer)
Design/formulation and optimization of products (product engineer)
R&D of technical products, processes and devices
Customer services, retailing (sales engineer)

Program Educational Objectives

PEOs describe what graduates are expected to achieve a few years after graduation.

  • Mastery of the basic principles of science and engineering science that underlie modern chemical and emerging technologies and its application to the solution of problems in a broad range of career paths.
  • Conduct themselves as ethical and responsible professionals, and appreciate as well as articulate the environmental, social, safety and economic impacts of their decision and work on society.
  • Demonstrate an ability to function and communicate effectively as individuals and team members and show management, leadership, and entrepreneurial potential.
  • Recognition of and commitment to the importance of continued self-improvement and the ability to engage in lifelong learning


Apart from these traditional career options, graduates are also much appreciated in other sectors for their insight into complex processes. Chemical engineers are often employed in the financial and governmental sector, for instance, to supervise industrial activities, deliver permissions and compose regulations with respect to safety and environmental issues. As self-employed persons, chemical engineers work in engineering offices or as consultants. Chemical engineers are often also quite successful as entrepreneurs.
