University of Technology, Jamaica - Bachelor of Engineering in Chemical Engineering


The Chemical and Biological Engineering programme equips students with quality education in the theory and practice of chemical and biological engineering processes.The profession requires engineers to be able to apply the principles of the physical sciences and economics while considering environmental factors in the designs, implementation and operation of processes in which materials change their state, composition and/or energy content.

The programme, therefore, equips students with the neccessary skills to research, develop, design and analyze chemical processes and equipment. The graduates of the Bachelor of Engineering(CHE) programme will also efficiently and safely design products to meet market specification with minimum negative impact on the environment.

This course of study is delivered in English and Spanish in order to adequately prepare graduates for effective careers in Latin American and the wider Caribbean Region. Written and spoken fluency in technical Spanish is achieved via a minimum of 18 credit hours in specialization modules taught in Spanish either at UTech, or at other accredited Spanish speaking universities.
