Bachelor of Engineering in Chemical and Materials Engineering is the engineering discipline that makes extensive use of both chemical and physical transformations to achieve added value. This profession relies on the concept of "scale-up", that is, the transition of discovery (a new material, a new catalyst, a new molecule, a new physical phenomenon) from the laboratory to the production plant.

In our times we are fortunate to be experiencing a literal explosion in new materials and new chemistries with applications in many diverse fields, such as environmental protection and remediation, energy production and storage, hydrocarbon processing, plastics production and processing, foods, pharmaceuticals, biomedical devices, and so many others. This has made Chemical Engineers worldwide well sought after by employers and commanding top salaries; we are confident that your program of study in Chemical and Materials Engineering will make your future career prospects even brighter.

The BEng in ChME is a four-year degree program. The program is designed to provide skills and a detailed knowledge base at the undergraduate level for a career in an advanced degree, industry, or research, in Kazakhstan or abroad.
