Engineering puts up the physical infrastructure of a society. Engineers help to improve the quality of living in the community. The Chemical Engineering education provides our students with a good science foundation, sound problem solving skill and the right social & environmental consciousness. This project will give our students opportunities to apply what they have learnt in theories to the society in practise.
