Department of Chemical Engineering  
  Dr. Kahsif Hussain Mangi


To address the pressing issue of a severe shortage of chemical engineers in the country and to provide high-quality education in a research-oriented environment with ample opportunities for personal and professional development, the Department of Chemical Engineering at Quaid-e-Awam University of Engineering Science & Technology, Nawabshah, was established in 2013.

The department boasts a team of highly qualified and experienced faculty members dedicated to delivering foundational courses within a friendly and congenial environment. Students enrolled in the program benefit from access to state-of-the-art laboratories, providing hands-on experience in applying fundamental principles of chemical engineering. These laboratories are not only equipped for practical education but also actively engage in cutting-edge research and development within the field of chemical engineering.

At present, the department offers a comprehensive four-year undergraduate program in Chemical Engineering and well-accredited by Pakistan Engineering Council under the Charter of Washington Accord. The focal point of this undergraduate program is to instil in students the essential skills of problem-solving, critical analysis, teamwork, and resourcefulness, particularly in the realms of design, manufacturing, operations, management, and maintenance of industrial plants and laboratories involving chemical processes. Our Alumni have a proved themselves by acquiring professional roles in Pakistan’s leading organizations including Engro Corporation, Lucky Group of Companies, Oil and Gas, Sugar, and Cement Industries.
