Atılım University, Chemical Engineering Department was established with the purpose of educating eligible engineers who gather up the pure chemical knowledge and engineering abilities and can analyze the whole process from raw material to product. The graduates who have got the applied chemistry skills can supervise the research and development projects in the industry. In accordance with this purpose, students of our department will get fundamental chemistry education besides Chemical Engineering courses and enhance their sight, and they will get different perspectives with the support of mathematics and physics. In addition, our department provides graduate education pragramme called as Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry.
