Chemical engineering occupies a unique position at the
interface between molecular sciences and engineering.
Intimately linked with the fundamental subjects of
chemistry, biology, mathematics, and physics-and in
close collaboration with fellow engineering disciplines like
materials science, computer science, and mechanical,
electrical, and civil engineering-chemical engineering
offers unparalleled opportunities to do great things.
Chemical engineers are spearheading new developments
in medicine, biotechnology, microelectronics, advanced
materials, energy, consumer products, manufacturing,
and environmental solutions.
Chemical industry contributes 21.2 per cent value added
of Pakistan’s manufacturing sector. It is capital-intensive
sector and its share in employment is 8.9 per cent.
Petroleum refining and products,fertilizers,
Pharmaceuticals, synthetic resins constitute bulk of the
sector’s value added. The total production of chemicals in
Pakistan is around $ 3 billion while the import of chemical
related products constitutes more than US$ 2 billion.
Thus, there is a vast potential for developing this sector
through import substitution and self reliance. The major
issues of the chemical sector include the nonavailability
and high cost of inputs and utilities, obsolete technology
base, limited Research and Development, quality control
and environmental problems.
Chemical Engineering at Dawood College of Engineering
and Technology has provided leadership in the filed since
its inception in 1964. We have well equipped laboratories,
state of the art analytical equipment, and Workshop. Rs
50.0 million has been utilized through Strengthening of
Academic Infrastructure (SAIN) project to update our
At present Chemical Engineering Department have
laboratory facilities in heat transfer, mass transfer, unit
operation, fluid flow, fuel testing, petroleum technology,
petro-chemical, biochemical, reaction eng & control. The
facilities of the chemistry laboratories are also available
for practical in Chemical process technology, unit process
Department has recently strengthened the laboratory
facilities with addition of Automated Pilot scale distillation
plant, Hydrogenation Plant, Reverse Osmosis Plant and
Liquid Extraction Plant. The new laboratories and Pilot
plants provide unique learning opportunities and maintain
our position at the forefront.
From its inception chemical engineering has adopted the
open spirit of science, developed principles susceptible to
modified generalization and ready to jump on new
knowledge to make it productive.
In order to cope with the changing opportunities and
challenges faced by graduating chemical engineers in
Pakistan as a consequence of technological
developments and globalization, chemical engineering
curriculum at Dawood College of Engineering and
Technology has developed to meet those challenges.
The changes in curriculum have been made are based
upon an assessment of the capacity of the following in
order to meet the current challenges, namely:
methodology; and learning materials.
Courses were added that were based more on general
principles, rather than the description of various chemical
processes. Industrial training is also integrated part of the
education programme of the department and students are
sent every year to various industries for practical training
and visits. Industrial training is part of the education

The local industry opens horizons for graduates to
contribute in the national development. In recent time
leading Chemical Industries including Engro Fertilizers,
Engro Polymers Limited, Lotte Pakistan PTA Ltd, Pakistan
Petroleum Limited, Nestle Pakistan, BYCO PETROLEUM
PAKISTAN LIMITED and Gatron Polymer Limited held job
fair at the campus. This liaison with industries and
prospective employers bring a sense of pride and
confidence to the students.
With a wide range of training, analytical skills, and focus
on understanding processes, our chemical engineers
work successfully in areas ranging from financial analysis
to environmental science to process engineering. Some
of the emerging frontiers to which chemical engineers can
contribute increasingly in Pakistan are coal technology,
polymer engineering, biochemical engineering, advanced
materials, energy resources and their processing, and
environmental protection and remediation.
