Bachelor of Engineering in Chemical and Materials Engineering

Bachelor in Chemical and Materials Engineering teaches students to research and chemical processing skills for successful practice in chemical and material industries.

NU SEDS faculty developed this four-year degree program to train students to meet the growing global demand for engineers in industries such as environmental protection, remediation, energy production and storage, global food supply, and pharmaceutical generation.

In addition to conceptual coursework, students complete simulations designed to replicate real-world practices in chemical and materials processing plants and laboratories specializing in areas such as environmental and bio-engineering. Students can elect to participate in a Research Practice course designed to enhance specialized skills in a chosen area of study. Graduates from the B.Eng. in ChME program can immediately enter research laboratories and industry departments in Kazakhstan and abroad.
