Research at Chemical Engg. Department

The department is engaged in fundamental as well as applied research. In line with the vision of the UAE government, the department focuses its research mainly on sustainable energy and water treatment technologies. 

In addition, the faculty and students are continuously engaged in applied research in the areas of  process systems engineering, energy integration, catalysis and reactor design, separation processes, water treatment and remediation technologies, adsorption, nanofluidics, advanced energy materials, computational fluid dynamics, atomic and molecular simulations etc. For more informations, please visit the pages of individual faculty member.  
 
  • On 15th March 2017, the department has signed an MOU with Ocean Corner Water Treatment Equipment & Chemicals LLC to set up a research facility for water treatment and testing. Under the agreement, Ocean Corner Water Treatment Equipment & Chemicals LLC will set up a treatment plant and which will be used for research, consultancy and academic purposes.
