Chemical engineering is a branch of engineering science that deals with physics and chemistry applied mathematics and economics to generate, convert, transport and use chemicals and energy. This ties in with process plant design from a practical and functional perspective as the delivery of liquids alone is as critical as understanding chemical engineering as an industry professional.

Chemical engineers apply their chemistry and engineering skills to transform raw materials into utilizable goods, like medicines, fuels, chemicals and plastics. They are also involved in research. They also design and perform experimental researches to make new and better customs of production of chemicals, controlling harmful effects, conserving the resources.

The main aim of this course is to ensure students understand the technical concepts involved in chemical engineering with plant layout, process and piping design contextualization. This course will also help the students to acquire knowledge on chemical engineering theory and concepts with practical examples for context and applicability.
