The Bachelor of Science degree program in Chemical Engineering is one of the oldest fields in engineering. It has been offered by De La Salle University continuously since it was established in 1947 along with three other traditional engineering fields namely, Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering, in line with the government’s drive towards economic and industrial development of the Philippines.

With the current and future growth of the chemical industry, well-trained Chemical Engineers will be in great demand. The Department of Chemical Engineering is greatly concerned with this national problem and has geared itself to offer better and more advanced educational standards.

The Chemical Engineering curriculum aims to develop knowledge and skills that will prepare students for leadership in the practice of the chemical engineering profession. Besides providing a firm foundation in the basic engineering and physical sciences, with non-technical courses in arts and management, the program trains students for further specialization in dynamic chemical engineering sub-areas such as: Industrial Process Control, Environmental Engineering, Biotechnology, and Energy Engineering.
