|Welcome to the UKZN’s Discipline of Chemical Engineering website. Here you will find general information about chemical engineering, as well as important information about chemical engineering at UKZN. We look forward to seeing you in our discipline! |
Chemical Engineers are concerned with the design, construction, operation and management of industrial plants in which raw materials undergo physical and/or chemical change, e.g. oil refining or beer brewing.
Chemical engineers learn to model the many common features of these processes mathematically, leading to alternative designs, optimal computer control, improved economics or the solution of processing problems.
