About Chemical & Process Engineering

The Department of Chemical Engineering offers one (1) BSc programme in Chemical and Process Engineering and (2) MSc programmes in Chemical and Process Engineering, and Chemical and Process Engineering with Management.

 

BSc Chemical and Process Engineering

The BSc Chemical and Process Engineering is a three-year programme concerned with the design, construction and operation of all the processes involved in industrial production ranging from oil and gas processing to minerals such as bauxite and steel, as well as to a wider range of small processes such as detergency, paints, pharmaceuticals, food etc. The BSc in Chemical and Process Engineering aims to train and educate Chemical Engineering graduates on the route to professional engineering status by providing students with the foundational science and mathematics, core engineering principles and design fundamentals involved in the safe, profitable and environmentally-sound design, construction and operation of regional process industries.
 
The degree is accredited by the global professional membership for chemical, biochemical and process engineers, IChemE (Institution of Chemical Engineers) to the BEng Level, en route to CEng and follows the UK system of grading; First, Upper Second, Lower Second, and Pass class ranges. Students are required to complete 95 credits over a range of 33 courses. All courses are compulsory. The Department ensures that its curriculum is tightly linked to its learning outcomes (LO's) and satisfies the IChemE’s learning outcome requirements for academic programmes en route to chartered engineering status.

The objective of all our Chemical and Process Engineering degrees is to prepare students to enter careers in the regional process industries. In the final year programme, students are required to carry out the design of a plant-this being the culmination of the programme of studies. The programme is ideal as a background for postgraduate studies in many areas, including petroleum engineering.
Graduates of the Chemical & Process Engineering Programme will find employment in all aspects of the process industries, including design, process engineering, project engineering, operations management, technical services and marketing.

Dr. Dhurjati Chakrabarti is the Group Leader of Chemical & Process Engineering at The UWI. He received his BTech from Calcutta University, Kolkata (India), his Master in Chemical Engineering from UDCT, Mumbai (India), and his PhD from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur (India). He has distinct industrial experiences covering steel, natural gas, speciality chemicals and innovations. Dr. Chakrabarti has been working as a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Chemical Engineering at The University of The West Indies, St. Augustine, Trinidad and Tobago since 2008. His publications on instrumentation in pipe flow are widely appreciated and his contribution in waste removal, green chemistry and plant feasibility are also well recognized. Recently his work involves trying to define different kinds of flow phenomena theoretically as well as experimentally, and the amalgamation of different titles such as multiphase flow, reaction engineering, and thermodynamics.
