More information 


Chemistry is the fundamental science that has an active role in all branches of life, gathers computational and technological research activities and also it is milestone of knowledge-based economy. The main objective of the Chemistry Department is to train students as a scientist capable of conducting research to solve problems in fundamental and applied chemistry and equipping students with the practical skills for the development of common procedure and techniques. On the other hand, the aim of the chemical engineering is to upgrade the manufacturing process which chemical and physical changes occur. These processes are composed of various compatible chemical and physical operations. The mission of a chemical engineer is to design the processes, perform discrete and continuous experiments, apply to the industry and control the outcomes.

Programme structure

Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry is such a multi-discipline programme that it is related with wide variety of field such as energy, nanotechnology, biotechnology, food processing, textile, plastic, paint, cosmetic, environmental technology and advanced materials technology with biologist, chemist and chemical engineers. From this point of view, since it is rare among the global universities and the only in Turkey, priority target is to achieve the excellence and increase competition and performance by scientific and R&D studies. As Atılım University believes that colloboration exists in every field naturally, this department can also work with particularly material, manufacturing, industrial, electrical and electronics, energy, mechanical, automotive, civil and mechatronics engineering. The language of teaching in the Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry Department is in English and total number of credits required for the undergraduate chemical engineering degree is 153. Moreover, students are required to participate in 20 weekdays summer internship experiment at the end of the second and third years. The students need to get positive confirmation from the organization s/he works and the internship report submitted to the department at the end of the internship period. Internship is accepted one of the most important element in engineering education.

Career opportunities

Chemical engineering is one of the four fundamental engineering fields in which a comprehensive knowledge of mathematics, chemistry, and other natural sciences gained by study, experience, and practice is applied to convert raw materials into a variety of products for the benefit of mankind, and deals with the design and operation of plants and equipment to perform such work. It has a crucial role in today’s technological developments and innovations. It covers all of the dynamic study fields which take an enormous interest from the society, such as process system engineering, petrochemical engineering, nanotechnology, biotechnology, environmental technologies, food technologies and energy systems.
Chemical engineers work at industrial plants, laboratories, private and public project organizations, and petrochemical, fundamental chemicals, sugar, food, cement, ceramic, pharmaceutical, textile, dye, metal, fertilizer, plastics/rubber industries, marine and defense industry, and healthcare fields by performing design, operation and /or support services. In addition, Chemical Engineering graduates have a great opportunity to become entrepreneurs.
