Chemical Engineering is a key national industrial technology based on traditional chemical engineering fields such as refinery, petrochemicals, polymers, fertilizers, and fine chemicals. It also holds an important position in advanced fields such as biotechnology, semiconductors, electronic materials, energy and the environment, and the medical industry. Knowledge of chemical engineering is required throughout the process from the collection of raw materials such as petroleum to the manufacture of products such as gasoline, plastics, and pharmaceuticals. Therefore, the main point of education in the Department of Chemical Engineering is to acquire knowledge of physicochemical principles, chemical engineering production technology, the development of products with environmental and economic efficiency, and the construction of factories, and to promote the qualities of future technology managers. After graduation, students work in companies and research institutes, educational institutions, and administrative organizations, in fields such as petrochemicals, various materials, semiconductors and electricity, automobiles, shipbuilding and heavy industry, the steel industry, precision industrial chemistry, and energy engineering.
