Chemical Engineering Laboratories

Our Chemical Engineering Lab offers opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience with processing and analytical equipment. Laboratory has a key role in promoting practical and hands-on education throughout the undergraduate careers of chemical engineering students at the Toms College of Engineering.

The Chemical Engineering Lab is where students apply their knowledge of theory by conducting experiments, operating production size equipment, and optimizing chemical processes. Final years students can develop creative proposals, and execute their final projects in our well equipped labs. Our goal is to provide a scientific and technological environment where students become proficient at both the physical and creative skills needed in the workforce.
