The Chemical Engineering program studies the physical and chemical phenomena involved in the transformations of matter through chemical or mechanical processes, or as the result of chemical reactions at the molecular or macroscopic scales.  It furthermore studies how to develop, design, evaluate, and optimize different types of transformation processes, be they mechanical, physical, thermal, or chemical.  To this end, the program covers different means to develop new products, as well as processes to produce raw materials or intermediate products through experimentation, mathematical modelling, or the application of engineering criteria, enabling future professionals to obtain basic competency skills and thus perform their work duties responsibly as chemical engineers.
