Chemical Engineering Department

1. General Information

Chemical engineering is one of the main branches of engineering and it is a necessary profession in almost all processes. The Chemical Engineering Department of Eskişehir Osmangazi University was established in 1968. The department aims at training researcher, investigator, life-long learning chemical engineers with analytical thinking ability who are proud of their department and university, and who are considering the human relations, efficiency of production processes and economics. For this purpose the department gives a high qualified graduate and undergraduate education in accordance with the needs of the contemporary and state-of-the-art technologies.

There are three divisions in the department: Unit Operations and Thermodynamics; Process and Reactor Design; and Chemical Technologies. The courses consist of theoretical and laboratory courses in the department. In this context, in the four year undergraduate curriculum of the department, there are basic science, basic engineering, chemistry and chemical engineering courses. Additionally, the students take four social elective courses and three technical elective courses according to their areas of interest. Laboratory courses are very important in chemical engineering education. In this content, there are eight laboratory courses: Physics Lab., Chemistry Lab., Physical Chemistry Lab, Analytical Chemistry Lab., Instrumental Analysis Lab., Chemical Engineering Labs. I, II, and III. The students perform laboratory experiments related to the basic principles and significant applications of science, chemistry and chemical engineering. The students also have the possibility of attaining a second diploma by completing a second main branch education or attaining a certificate by completing a side branch education, if they fulfill the required conditions in their chemical engineering education.

The graduates of the department are taking positions such as general director, director, manager, chief, specialist, R&D engineer, quality assuredness official, project engineer, plant engineer, etc. in private, public and official sectors.


2. Attained Degree

The students attain a bachelor’s diploma in chemical engineering when they complete all the courses and necessities successfully.


3. The Level of Degree

License (bachelor’s degree)


4. Acceptance and Registering Conditions

The general conditions of acceptance for Turkish and foreign students are applied.


5. The Definition of Previous Education

In all the Turkish higher education institutions, the vertical, horizontal, inter- and intra-university transfers are applied according to the “REGULATION OF THE FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES OF  TRANSFER BETWEEN UNDER AND PRE- GRADUATE PROGRAMS, DOUBLE MAIN BRANCH, SIDE BRANCH, AND CREDIT TRANSFER BETWEEN THE INSTITUTIONS” arranged by Higher Education Council. 

In Turkey, apart from the education institutions, in the content of defining the certified or experiential learning in the areas of computers and foreign languages, exemption examinations are organized at the beginning of each academic term. The students become exempted from the related courses if they these exams and get the required grades.


6. Conditions and Rules of Qualification

The student should pass all the courses in the curriculum successfully. The student should not have any FF, DZ or YZ grades. The student should have at least 240 ECTS credits and student’s cumulative grade should be at least 2.00 over 4.00. The student should complete the compulsory 15 working days of laboratory practice and 30 working days of plant practice.


7. Program Profile (Objective)

To train researcher, investigator, life-long learning chemical engineers with analytical thinking ability who are proud of their department and university, and who are considering the human relations, efficiency of production processes and economics. For this purpose, the department gives a high qualified graduate and undergraduate education in accordance with the needs of the contemporary and state-of-the-art technologies.

Additionally, the objective is to train chemical engineers having the abilities of solving all the problems and designing the experiments in their professional activities. Another main objective is to conduct highly qualified scientific investigations on national and international levels and improve the infrastructure and physical conditions in order to provide the sustainability of scientific and technological high level.


8. Program Sufficiency (Learning Outcomes)

Program outcomes are given below:

1.Having sufficient knowledge about mathematics, science, and chemical engineering and the skill of applying for modeling and solving of chemical engineering problems by the theoretical and experiential informations about these areas.

2.Skill of defining, identifying, formulating and solving by selecting and applying appropriate analysis and modeling method for the complex engineering problems about chemical engineering and related areas.

3.Skill of design a complex system, device or product by applying the modern design methods under realistic constraints and conditions according to a specified objective.

4.Skill of the effective usage of information technology, selection, development and usage of the modern techniques and tools which are necessary for the application of chemical engineering.

5.An ability of designing of the experiment, experimentation, collecting data, analyzing and interpreting the results for the investigation of problems of the chemical engineering.

6.An ability of having disciplinary and interdisciplinary teamwork and ability of individual working.

7.Skill of effective communication orally and in writing in Turkish and ability of using/improving the knowledge of foreign language.

8.An awareness of the necessity of life-long learning; accessing to the information, following the scientific and technological developments and ability of renew oneself continuously.

9.Ethical and professional responsibility.

10.Knowledge about project management, risk management and change management and an awareness about sustainable development, innovativeness, entrepreneurship.

11.The knowledge about the effects of engineering practices socially and globally which are related to health, environment and security; awareness about the legal results of engineering solutions and national and international legal regulation and the standards.

12.To have knowledge about the modern problems that are local and global.


9. Employment Possibilities for the Graduates

Chemical engineering is one of the main branches of engineering and it is a favorite profession in almost all processes. Chemical engineers have a very wide area of working in public and private sectors and they may work in all kinds of process industries, research and development departments, technical services, sales and marketing divisions, technical and administrative positions. They may also make productions or give services in their own private plants or facilities. Chemical engineers work in petrochemicals, coatings (paint, varnish etc.), plastics, pulp and paper, detergents, glass, cement, sugar, fertilizer etc. industries.


10. Transition to Higher (Graduate) Programs

The graduates may apply to graduate programs in their own or related areas if they can get sufficient grades in ALES or equivalent examinations and if they have sufficient level of foreign language.


11. Examinations, Measuring and Evaluation

The measuring and evaluation is defined in the “Course Information Form” for each course.


12. Graduation Conditions

The graduation conditions are the same as explained in the “Conditions and Rules of Qualification” section.


13. Way of Study (Full Time, E-Learning)

Full time.
