BSc. Of Chemical Engineering

Chemical engineers have technical knowledge of chemistry, biochemistry, engineering, materials science and information technology. However, they also know about economics, management, safety and the environment. The tools used include sophisticated scientific experiments, the latest developments in computing, and large-scale pilot plants.  

Their work focuses on changing the chemical, biochemical and physical state of a substance to turn it into something else. They understand how to alter raw materials into required products while taking into consideration health and safety and cost issues.  

They work in a variety of industries including:  

  • Oil and gas  
  • Pharmaceuticals  
  • Energy  
  • Water treatment  
  • Food and drink  
  • Plastics  
  • Toiletries  

What are my professional opportunities? 

Work may take place in a lab, office or processing plant. Development work may progress from lab to plant or construction site, so travel may be required at certain stages of a project and clothing requirements, for example, the need for safety clothing, may change. Jobs are quite widely available and process plants are located in industrial areas throughout the Azerbaijan and overseas. The Faculty of Chemical engineering in UNISTRA is located in the heart of the Upper Rhine area, which was the birthplace of one of the main industrial chemistry centers in the world. Along with the Doctoral School of Chemical Sciences, the Faculty is an internationally recognized research center. Teaching is based on a solid tradition and fostered by the development of many active laboratories. UNISTRA has 3 Nobel Prize winners in Chemical science.
