Associate Professor Joseph Owino, Head

Program Mission:

The mission of the chemical specialty is threefold: (1) to provide students with the knowledge and skills required for a range of careers and graduate study; (2) to provide service to the profession in our region and beyond; and (3) to maintain a supportive environment that encourages students and faculty to achieve.

Program Objectives:

In support of this mission, the chemical program aims to produce graduates who

  • have the ability to function as chemical engineers;
  • agree that the environment at UTC was conducive to their achieving;
  • work in multidisciplinary teams;
  • are progressing toward professional registration;
  • participate in professional societies;
  • pursue graduate studies.

The Chemical Engineering program faculty is committed to delivering a chemical engineering curriculum that has a strong emphasis on fundamental engineering tools, the use of modern electronic instrumentation, and the design of chemical unit operations. The curriculum culminates with a process design project.

Chemical Engineering program faculty interests include process design and control, chemical process miniaturization, and environmental issues and impacts.
