The Chemical and Petroleum Engineering Department offers two programs in chemical and petroleum engineering at undergraduate and graduate levels.The Chemical Engineering and Petroleum Engineering undergraduate programs in the College of Engineering at the United Arab Emirates University are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. ABET accreditation provides assurance that a College or University program meets the quality standards of the profession for which that program prepares graduates. We have a vibrant and supportive department with elite faculty members, laboratory specialists, research assistants and teaching assistants readily available to assist the students and to provide a world-class education.The department houses excellent laboratory facilities, which are designed to familiarize the students with theoretical and practical aspects of the various experiments and to introduce them to the aspects of industrial operations.
Our department is committed to developing the full potential of students by providing
a unique and stimulating environment that promotes active learning and group work.
The department is striving to reach new goals in its pursuit of academic excellence,
where engineering design, innovation, and team work provide the students with the
necessary tools to tackle real, multidisciplinary problems.
Our faculty members are actively involved in many research programs encompassing a wide spectrum of areas ranging from fundamental research in reservoir simulation, phase equilibria and transport phenomena to recent advances in polymer engineering, enhanced oil recovery, water desalination, nanotechnology, biotechnology, carbon capture, membrane separation, and plasma technology. Undergraduate and graduate students are also encouraged to be actively involved in many research areas.
