The Department of Chemical Engineering provides varied educational and training courses to cultivate the best domestic chemical engineers who can contribute to our society and nation with professional knowledge and conduct.
The Department of Chemical Engineering has begun as one of six original departments in INHA Institute of Technology established in 1954. The Department of Chemical Engineering established an M.S. program in 1958 and a Ph.D. program in 1970.
The purpose of education in the Department of Chemical Engineering is to educate excellent engineers who have practicality and creativity, and contribute to industrial development in the domestic chemical engineering and industrial chemistry. We provides fundamental knowledge of physical and chemical science to promote overall understanding and practical applications in the fields of Chemical Engineering Industries. We also encourage the students to have a balanced education through humanitarian requirements.
