What about Chemical Engineering @ KMUTNB

     The discipline of chemical engineering integrates both physical and chemical phenomena involving the manipulation of molecular matter and energy i.e. established on core principles—the conservation of mass, momentum, and energy while incorporating numerous areas of technology. The philosophy utilizes a wide range of knowledge such as thermodynamics, reactions and kinetics, catalysis, chemistry, molecular biology, transport phenomena, process control, etc. to solve complex and practical problems.

     Our specifically designed programs also include a broad education in humanities, social sciences, and managerial techniques so the students will develop a sense of responsibility and awareness in which engineering decisions are made and implemented. The students should be encouraged to embrace using outside the box contemplation to solve problems. Ultimately, our department would like to motivate and challenge our students to look at the globalized society and how to better serve the world citizens.

Prospective Career Opportunities

     Chemical engineers are critical to the development of new technologies in robust and vibrant chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Significant growths are set for these industries both at home and abroad. Our graduates have found employment in chemical, petroleum refining, petrochemical, semiconductor/electronic, bio/pharmaceutical and related industries.


     Chemical engineers who graduated from KMUTNB play vital roles in all technical and managerial functions bearing on the chemical and bioengineering process industries i.e. research and development, design, plant construction, plant operation and management, corporate planning, technical sales, and market analysis, etc. We have successfully served the industries to produce chemicals or certain physical changes in fluids, including petroleum and petrochemicals, rubbers and polymers, metals, industrial and fine chemicals, industrial gases, food and consumer products, and microelectronic devices and integrated circuits. Many areas of bioengineering and biotechnology including pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical, cellular bioengineering, diagnostics, drug delivery have also gained more interest. In addition, the chemical engineering skills are attuned to efficient energy resources e.g. hydrogen and fuel cells to bring different perspectives and approaches to meeting the global’s energy needs.
