The Major in Chemical Engineering deeply explores topics such as chemical thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and the transfer of mass and heat. This education allows students to specialize in a number of areas, such as foods, biotechnology, pharmaceutics, chemicals, materials, the environment, petrochemicals, minerals processing, and natural products.
These courses will allow students to obtain a general vision of the Major in Chemical Engineering and the areas of knowledge that are studied.
The graduates of Bachelor of Science in Engineering with a Major in Chemical Engineering will be able to exercise their profession in a wide range of industrial areas, particularly as related to the conception and development of processes for producing, transforming, and transporting materials. Furthermore, graduates will be able to design new high-performance products, thereby contributing to technological innovations on a national scale.
“The UC Major in Chemical Engineering will allow you to dominate the principles of this discipline and to apply these principles in creating new solutions in the areas of your interest, such as foods, biotechnology, natural products, environmental contamination, residue treatment, new materials, minerals processing, and many others,” Héctor Jorquera González.
