Welcome from the Head of the Department of Chemical Engineering
It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the website of the Department of Chemical Engineering at the Qatar University . I hope that you will find the information you require and gain a good impression of our activities. We are very proud of our track record of excellence in both teaching and research and we regard ourselves as a leading Department of Chemical Engineering for our size in the region. We have been growing steadily in recent years and contributing to the Qatari economy by supplying quality graduate chemical engineers to its booming chemical industry. Our department has developed a unique plant design team teaching experience with the tremendous support of local and international oil and gas companies. Our highly qualified faculty members are engaged in several high value outreach activities locally and regionally. The department of Chemical Engineering has been particularly successful in building research capacity over the past few years and secured on a competitive basis over 15 Million US Dollars of external research funding. Our faculty members research experience has been usefully extended to train our undergraduate students in research methods through the QNRF UREP funding scheme.
The department of chemical engineering is a member of supporting departments for the Master Program in Environmental Engineering and currently accepts suitably qualified candidates for the recently launched PhD degree program in the College of Engineering.
