Chulalongkorn University Advantage

Being the Department of Chemical Engineering at Chulalongkorn University has added another dimension of advantages for the students in terms of the richness of academic life and learning experiences. Chulalongkorn University as the oldest and most prestigious university in the country offers a unique university life with its various activities. Its position in the center of the capital of learning makes access to all important knowledge infrastructure and cultural activities within easy reach. The basic goals of the university are to break new ground, search for, uphold and transmit knowledge along with ethical values to university graduates. The large bodies of students in eighteen faculties and a number of schools open the students to the network of life that would last into their working careers. As the first institution of higher learning in Thailand, Chulalongkorn University has evolved largely in response to the changing needs and requirements of the country and its people. Expericress at Chulalongkorn University will be added advantage for students in their careers.

Undergraduate Program and Admission

Faculty of Engineering offers the programs leading to Bachelor degrees in Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering, Automotive Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Mining and Petroleum Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Survey Engineering, Metallurgical Engineering and Computer Engineering. The student is required to select a program of study after he/she has conpleted his/her second semester. All the students follow the common program shown below.

The total number of credits for graduation from The Faculty of Engineering must not less than specified by the department. Each undergraduate is required to undertake a minimum of six weeks practical training in industry as the part of the course 2100301 Engineering Practice before graduation. Work in the laboratory is also brought into sharper focus by the final year project. The project work, which is aimed at providing the student with experience similar to those of practicing engineers, is a compulsory course of all departments.

 

The objectives of the curriculum

  1. To instill chemical engineering graduates with fundamental knowledge in science and engineering and their capability to integrate such knowledge in engineering and manufacturing technology fields so as to evaluate, develop, produce and control the process
  2. To enable chemical engineering graduates analyze, research, and evaluate the behavior of unit operation and manufacturing process
  3. To encourage chemical engineering graduates to communicate and express professional opinions and become a vital part of the team containing other professions
  4. To equip chemical engineering graduates with essential analytical tools to be employed when engineering projects contain risk factor in investment and uncertainties in various technical data
  5. To inspire chemical engineering graduates with morality, ethics, and life-long thirst for knowledge

Admissions Requirements

To be eligible for admission to Faculty of Engineering an applicant must meet the following requirements :

  • He/she must hold a Mathayom Suksa 6 certificate of a High School or other equivalent which the University recognises as begin acceptable.
  • He/she must have passed the competitive entrance examination held annually by the University Entrance Examination Board.
