Associate Professor Joseph Owino, Head
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.
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.
Degree and Accreditation:
