The Department Chemical & Polymer Engineering (FSD Campus) is part of the Faculty of Chemical, Metallurgical and Polymer Engineering. The department was established in 2004 for undergraduate degree program in the Chemical Engineering. Currently, it has an enrollment of 178 students pursuing undergraduate studies. The department followed semester system scheme throughout the tenure. The scheme of studies is being shifted from session 2015 to adopt the Outcome Based Education Scheme (OBE) after the decision of Board of Studies (BOS). The curriculum has been revised accordingly to address all relevant areas of engineering, humanities and social sciences. The course consists of 136 credit hours (CH) in total spread over four-year scheme of studies. The course CH distribution for different knowledge areas is: Humanities (10 CH), Management (6 CH), Natural Sciences (16 CH), Computing (8 CH), Engineering Foundation (31 CH), Major Based Core (Breadth) (25 CH), Major Based Core (Depth) (27 CH), Interdisciplinary Engineering Breadth (7 CH) and Senior Design Project (6 CH). The department has state of the art laboratories for undergraduate experimental work.
The department has also got approval from higher education commission (HEC), board of studies (BOS) and board of faculty (BOF) and has started postgraduate M.Sc. Chemical Engineering degree with the first intake of M.Sc. Engineering from spring 2019.
The department has qualified faculty with multidisciplinary research interests. A lot of efforts have been made for the development of the faculty. Several faculty members have been funded for PhD programs in international universities through “Faculty Development Program (FDP)” by the University.
The Department is working relentlessly to establish a meaningful and productive link with prominent chemical related industries. Currently, the Department is enjoying good working relationship with various industries which include Fatima group, Packages Limited, Millat tractors, SNGPL, SEAL, SBS, FFC, BIN Rasheed, EPD, Diamond, Descon PPL etc. The productive collaboration with industry has resulted in ample internship opportunities for our students. The Department has been providing maximum Internships to our 4th year and 3rd year students in the previous years and is expected to do the same in the future.
