S. Program in chemical engineering

The department offers the degree of Masters of Science in Chemical Engineering since (1981/1982). Since then 70 students have already obtained their M.S. degrees in the department while 15 students currently enrolled in the program. To cope with the global changes in the chemical engineering education and more importantly to satisfy the local job demand, the department has renovated its classical Master program to include thesis and non-thesis options and added a specialized program in polymer engineering.
