The Division offers a four-year undergraduate programme leading to the Bachelor of Engineering degree in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, B.Eng. (CBE). Upon graduation, successful students will be awarded direct honors.
The programme amalgamates principles of chemical engineering and life sciences (biology, biochemistry and genetics ) to facilitate the development of safe, profitable and environmentally friendly processes for the synthesis and manufacture of products from chemical/biological raw materials.
The Institution of Engineers, Singapore through its Engineering Accreditation Board has granted accreditation to our Bachelor of Engineering (Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering) programme for students graduating from the programme since 2007/2008.
With its dynamic faculty from the internationally renowned universities, modern infrastructure and state-of-the-art research and teaching facilities, the School provides students a stimulating learning environment and opportunities to identify and pursue personal and professional goals.
