Department of Chemical Engineering

1. Introduction
Chemical Engineering is extremely broad and dynamic field of study with constantly
emerging technologies which profoundly affect our lives. Hence, the program, aims at
addressing the economical, industrial, medical, technological and other needs and
demands of the society. The department of Chemical engineering is the nucleus of
research and development in the areas of chemical process industries. Research
Development in chemical engineering encompasses product and process development
of various chemicals, petrochemicals, plastics, pharmaceuticals and other medicines,
agrochemicals, processed foods, energy (fuels, nuclear energy, others), pulp and
paper, beverages, cement, ceramics, and many others. It is the chemical engineer who
is responsible for conceiving (product, process, and equipment), designing, operating,
controlling, optimizing, and improving (modifying and modernizing) the industries
that produce the aforementioned products and myriads of others: the conception,
creation (design), operation, control, optimization, and improvement of the processing
and related industries. Research and development methods for minimizing the
generation of air, liquid and solid wastes, and treating existing wastes, design waste
treatment and pollution control equipment and also advise industry and government
regarding environmental policies and standards. The instruction at the undergraduate
level, therefore, will aim at providing the students a broad-based education with
emphasis on theory and practice of Chemical Engineering keeping in views the
current and future requirements of the country in industry.

1.1 Chemical engineering overview


Chemical engineers design processes to ensure the most economical operation. This means
that the entire production chain must be planned and controlled for costs. A chemical
engineer can both simplify and complicate "showcase" reactions for an economic advantage.
Using a higher pressure or temperature makes several reactions easier; ammonia, for
example, is simply produced from its component elements in a high-pressure reactor. On the
other hand, reactions with a low yield can be recycled continuously, which would be
complex, arduous work if done by hand in the laboratory. It is not unusual to build 6-step, or
even 12-step evaporators to reuse the vaporization energy for an economic advantage. In
contrast, laboratory chemists evaporate samples in a single step.
The individual processes used by chemical engineers (e.g., distillation or filtration) are
called unit operations and consist of chemical reactions, mass-, heat- and momentum- transfer
operations. Unit operations are grouped together in various configurations for the purpose of
chemical synthesis and/or chemical separation. Some processes are a combination of
intertwined transport and separation unit operations, (e.g., reactive distillation).Three primary
physical laws underlying chemical engineering design are conservation of mass, conservation
of momentum and conservation of energy. The movement of mass and energy around a
chemical process are evaluated using mass balances and energy balances, laws that apply to
discrete parts of equipment, unit operations, or an entire plant. In doing so, chemical
engineers must also use principles of thermodynamics, reaction kinetics, fluid mechanics and
transport phenomena. The task of performing these balances is now aided by process
simulators, which are complex software models (see List of Chemical Process Simulators)
that can solve Mass and energy balances and usually have built-in modules to simulate a
variety of common unit operations. Chemical engineering is applied in the manufacture of a
wide variety of products. The chemical industry has a large scope, manufacturing inorganic
and organic industrial chemicals, ceramics, fuels and petrochemicals, agrochemicals
(fertilizers, insecticides, herbicides), plastics and elastomers, explosives, detergents and
detergent products (soap, shampoo, cleaning fluids), fragrances and flavors, additives, dietary
supplements and pharmaceuticals. Closely allied or overlapping disciplines include wood

processing, food processing, environmental technology, and the engineering of petroleum,
glass, paints and other coatings, inks, sealants and adhesives. A variety of substances found in
everyday life have been made under the supervision of a chemical engineer.

1.2 Historical back ground


For all intents and purpose Chemical engineering profession has been began in 1888 when
Professor Lewis Norton of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA) initiated the first
four year bachelor program. In Ethiopia Chemical engineering has been began in 1976 E.C
in, A.A.U, Bahir Dar University in 1991 E.C, Adama and Dire Dawa University in 2001 E.C,
Mekelle University ( EiT-M) is now to launch the program in 2003 E.C
2.

Rationale for the curriculum:

A need assessment survey was conducted using questionnaire and interview withEmployers
in companies/process industries. These industries include:- Messebo cement factory,Shebo
Leather factory, Addis Pharmaceutical factory, Almeda Textile factory, Adwa life spring
water, Biruh Tesfa plastic products factory, Desta Alcholic products factory,Abergele
sloughter exportsfactory, Romanat, MAA garment and Michew Particle Board processing
factory.The aim of the survey was to make use of the collected feed back in designing
relevant curricula for the B.Sc. program in Chemical engineering.The need assessment
revealed that the following were major problems that need to be addressed to make the
shortage and quality of the graduates to the level expected.
According to the result of the survey, the companies/industries display as there is:
Insufficient practical skills with in this profession
poor feasibility studies
Unimproved process control, process optimization and improvement
Poor product,
Poor process system design.
Poor system recovery
Inefficient quality and quantity of product
Untrained man power with in chemical engineering profession
There is a high demand of chemical engineering professionals to address problems
such as
- Material utilization and recycling
- Process modeling instrumentation and control
- Process modification and improving
- Inefficient massive production
- Energy optimization
- Waste water treatment plant design etc
Therefore it is clear that at present Ethiopia expands and give ambitions to industry
developments but lacks technical professionals: Generally there are no enough professionals
8| P a g e

Ethiopian Institute of Technology-Mekelle (EiT-M)


Department of Chemical Engineering
of chemical engineers in different sectors of industry which the Government has given
Priority such as sugar industries, textiles, garments, leather and food processing and in
general process industries; considered as the critical infrastructure for the country to change
the living standards of the people. There is weak support for industrial sectors: Even though
there are organizations established to support industries like the Quality and Standard
Authority and the Leather Technology Institute, they dont have enough skilled and well
trained staff. Thus chemical engineering discipline should produce trained people that can
work at all supervisory levels within industry and at national level. These will be skilled at, a
bachelors degree level. If the new department to achieve the kind of education that
interviewees say is needed for Ethiopias development strategy, it will need to think carefully
about its assessment strategy.
It is, therefore, impossible to make the country an industrialization lead with untrained
manpower. Chemical Engineer is thus the one who simplify and make the economic
Standards of the country to be quenching in the range of civilized countries, having excellent
middle income. Yet, the number of professionals in the field of Chemical Engineering is not
sufficient enough to satisfy the needs of the country. It is therefore, with this understanding
that Ethiopian Institute of Technology-Mekelle would like to propose the establishment of
new Chemical Engineering department within the institute of technology.
PRINCIPLES OF PROFESSIONALISM
As any engineering discipline, even more, to be allowed to act as recognized Chemical
Engineers, the person must have achieved certain level in academic, practical experience and
maintained given code of conduct. These are given below:

Education
The educational requirement for working as a chemical engineer is a minimum of five -year
Bachelors degree in Chemical engineering or its area of specialization. All persons working
in these areas must have at least a bachelor's degree in a relevant field. Graduates in chemical
engineering from accredited institutions are eligible to work as chemical engineers.
Nowadays, additional criteria such as experience, results of professional tests, and
specializations are used set for granting licenses that enable practicing as professional
chemical engineers.
Practical Experience
Practical experience is a directed and structured activity in the practice of Chemical
Engineering during their higher education and/ or following receipt of a professional degree
but prior to registration / licensing / certification. During the study time, the student should
have a practical exposure in the chemical and any process industries (e.g. textile, leather and
tannery, food, beverage, pharmaceuticals, etc) either in the form of practical attachment or
internship. Moreover, a common platform should be created between the university and
industry in the form of Research and Consultancy services. The government and private
organizations should facilitate the linkage between universities and the industries.In fact,
9| P a g e

Ethiopian Institute of Technology-Mekelle (EiT-M)


Department of Chemical Engineering
required competency for the outcome of excellence is achieved by adding experience to the
educational components of a student's learning. Experience is essential; experience coupled
with formal education is very much valuable.
Practical experience should cover:
1. Product and process Invention synthesis
2. Product and process and apparatus design
3. Pollution assessment, monitoring and control
4. Selection of process apparatus
5. Process plant erection and commissioning
6. Operation and maintenance
7. Basic and applied research
8. Practical management and business administration
Demonstration of Professional Knowledge and Ability
Chemical engineering is a relatively young and rapidly growing field. As a result, curriculum
and training facilities are changing rapidly. Thus, the graduates are required to update
themselves with the state-of-the art methods and skills through short term training and other
options. This helps them to prove that have always maintained professional qualification with
acceptable level of knowledge and ability. They are required to know professional standard of
behavior established by code of ethics and act according through their professional career.
Registration/Licensing/Certification
It is obvious that engineers should meet formal minimum standard requirements in terms of
education, training and experience to practice the profession in the interest of the public
through registration, licensing or certification. Registration/licensing/certification is the
official legal recognition of an individual qualification allowing her or him to practice as a
chemical engineer associated with regulations preventing unqualified persons performing
certain functions. This process is to be done at regional and federal level for different stages
of professional certifications. The professional associations are making efforts to prepare new
guidelines for certification in collaboration with the state agencies mandated for licensing and
certification. This process will assure the public that the engineer is required knowledge and
ability, and proved him or herself practice the minimum skills acquired to practice as
chemical engineer. These professional qualifications have to be demonstrated by proper
examination and/or other prior determined evidences from employer organizations.
Therefore, the applicant for registration / certification as a chemical engineer is required to
demonstrate an acceptable level of professional knowledge and ability.
Ethics and code of conduct
The Ethiopian Society of Chemical Engineers (ESChE) in collaboration with Joint
Engineering and Architectural Professionals Association Secretariat (JEAPAS) is in the
process of adopting standard codes of Ethics based on international experience to enable:

The fundamental principle of the ESChE code of ethics is that engineers uphold and
advance integrity, honor and dignity of the engineering profession by:
10| P a g e

Department of Chemical Engineering

Using their knowledge and skill for the enhancement of industrial product quality,
safety and the protection of environment.
Being honest and impartial and serving with fidelity the industry, public, their
employers and customers.
Striving to increase the competence and prestige of the profession and
Supporting the professional and technical societies of other disciplines.
Continuing Professional Development
Continuing professional development is a lifelong learning process that maintains, enhances
or increases the knowledge and continuing ability of chemical engineers. It is essential that
the professionals strive to maintain existing skills, broadening knowledge and exploring new
areas. This is increasingly important to keep abreast with new technologies, methods of
practice and changing social and environmental conditions. This is mainly the responsibility
to be shared among the professional associations, higher learning institutions, industries and
different stake holders.
Role of Professional Institutes of Chemical Engineers
The Ethiopian Society of Chemical Engineers (ESChE) is at its early stage and hence it is not
yet strong enough to play a significant role in promoting the knowledge and practice of the
chemical engineering profession for the benefit of the community. Thus, such institute should
be strengthened so that it would be play pivotal role in advancement of Chemical
Engineering profession through:
Set chemical engineering standards
Promote continued professional development by facilitating training
Extend chemical engineering knowledge
Formulate and regulate standards for licensing, certification and registration conduct
research and disseminate research outcomes

European Credit Transfer System (ECTS):- The revised curriculum will seek accreditation
based on international standards and will Employ the European Credit Transfer System
(ECTS). ECTS was introduced in 1989 and is the only credit system which has been
successfully tested and used across Europe, especially following the Bologna Declaration of
June 1999. ECTS is a student-centered system based on the student workload required to
achieve the objectives of a program specified in terms of the learning outcomes and
competences to be acquired. According to the European Commission Education and Training
Programs, ECTS is based on the principle that about 60 credit points measure the workload of
a full-time student during one academic year.
7. Structure of the curriculum

10. Course Contact Hours
The contact hour for courses is three plus two, and three plus three, Tutorial and Lecture
respectively and one contact hour for a lecture is 50 minutes while one laboratory session is 3
hours. One credit hour for the laboratory means 16 laboratory sessions per semester. In case
the laboratory session is less than 16 sessions, the difference will be covered with lecture,
tutorial, demonstration, etc.
11 Methods of Instructions
In addition to normal lecture based teaching, students will develop their skills and knowledge
through active learning in a variety of ways. Group work in laboratories and design classes
should be highly encouraged, since this will allow the students to interact informally with
lecturers, technical staff and postgraduate assistants if there are any. Computer assisted
learning should be introduced and be a feature of some classes. Furthermore, use should be
made of guided reading, self-paced learning, and site visits. In summary, the Teaching
Methodology comprises the following:
Classroom lectures, duly supported by audio-visual aids, demonstrations and
distribution of notes pertaining to the subject, whenever possible or wherever
necessary,

lectures, seminars and tutorials, practical sessions, fieldtrips (field work), workshops,
individual or group projects, problem solving classes, demonstrations, group work, selfdirected assignment and professional attachment. Other modalities could be added based on
the nature of each course and available resources.
11.2 Mode of Assessment
Continuous and/or summative assessments which could include examinations, practical and
field reports, essays, oral and poster presentations, data interpretations, problem solving,
attachment reports and projects, etc.
11.3 Examination Method
Most courses will be assessed by a combination of written examinations. Reports on project
work should also be part and parcel of the assessment metrics. The design activities shall be
assessed entirely by course work and this often shall include assessment of oral presentations.
In the final year, students should be required to present their major design work by means of
power point presentation, poster exhibition in a professional format as frequently adopted in
commercial practice and at technical conferences. Some students could also produce
animated computer graphics of their work if the necessary facilities are provided by the
department. In addition to regular quizzes, home works and assignments, the students will
undertake two major exams for all the courses, the first at the middle and the second at the
end of each semester. Moreover, according the new curriculum, the students will also
undertake a holistic kind of examinations, either written or oral or both, before they leave for
their internship and after they complete the B.Sc. project.

The module is consisted of three courses. The first introduces
preliminary concepts of reaction mechanisms and how unknown
parameters can be predicted or estimated from laboratory data. The
second deals with designing of reactors of different types. Designing of
reactors for single and multiple reactions on both isothermal and non
isothermal basis is a major part on this module. The last one is a
laboratory work aimed to demonstrate how important parameters
necessary for reactor design, such as reaction constant and order, can be
obtained from experimental data.

Integrating on-the-job, practical field experience with
academic studies, offer students a chance to extend the
classroom into a work place setting. Internship should
result in graded academic credit for students. Internship
placements may extend up to 4 months usually at the
seventh semester. Students participate on such practical
training are expected to show a progressive trend toward
new experiences and competencies. Internship experiences
require a three-way working relationship among an
employer, the faculty and the student. Effective
communication between all parties is essential to the
development of
Successful Internship experiences.
Overall Course Objectives:
To integrate classroom learning with field
experience
To gain work experience in the students career
field
Provide exposure to advanced skills and knowledge

The Holistic Exam is intended to proof the students
capability to interlink special knowledge and skills
obtained through theoretical (classroom courses) and
practical (workshop, laboratory & computer exercises)
education in individual study
Program me modules over the first 3 years of studies.
The holistic exam thus forces the students to:
carefully review the study program me subjects of
the first six study semesters
understand the relevance of phenomena and design
principles learned in individual study program me
modules on complex engineering projects
apply knowledge and skills obtained in individual
courses on real world type problems and projects
However, for the following reasons the
expectations on the holistic exam shall be limited
to an appropriate and feasible level:
Although the lecturers emphasize to explain and
illustrate the relevance, importance and
applicability of theirindividual course subjects for
engineering projects, the study program me in the
first 3 study years is not designed to specifically
focus on project-oriented studies. These skills shall
be achieved by the students only duringthe
internship (7th semester) and during the so-called
project studies in the 8th and 9th study semester.
A three hours written exam may not allow

covering complex engineering projects including


detailed problem analysis, concept development
and design activities. Even in case open book
exams would be allowed, the theoretical
knowledge load would be extremely high and
The exam preparation time would at the same time
be rather limited to repeat all detailed subjects
taught in the first six semesters. Taking into
consideration the above framework conditions it
has been decided to slightly amend the original
objective of a holistic exam to the following:
Recall of the basic scientific and engineering
phenomena and design principles relevant to
approach engineering projects
Qualitative description of methods for problem
analysis, infrastructure project planning and design
Application of fundamental design criteria and
design methods on common engineering project
tasks
The Holistic exam is a written close-book type exam of 3
hours exam period.
The exam subject shall cover a number of subjects taught
in the first three study years (semester 1 to 6).

Justification of the module
Rationale and
The B.Sc. project is the final element of the B.Sc. study program. The
objective of the
main goal of this course is to develop the individual creative and
module
problem solving ability of graduates. Students will receive an individual
project specification from various areas and work them out individually
under the supervision of faculty advisor or/and professional advisor from
the industry. The candidate use all the theoretical knowledge and
practical skill he/she obtained during his/her
Study to solve the engineering problem in a scientific way which
includes problem analysis, solution, verification, implementation,
documentation, and presentation. B.Sc. project is defended in front of
the official committee at the end of the study. A project which leads to
the completion of B.Sc. degree in chemical engineering will be
conducted on different issues. Completing all basic and advanced
departmental courses is a prerequisite.
