Chemical Engineering

The department offers undergraduate studies in Chemical Engineering and graduate studies in Green Engineering at both Ashdod and Be’er Sheva campuses.

Chemical, biological and physical production processes are implemented in numerous industries worldwide, including plastic, "heavy" chemistry, mild chemicals, pharmaceuticals, biomedical, water, energy, food, biotechnology and others.

A chemical engineer must be familiar with these processes, and have a deep understanding of them, starting from the molecular level and all the way through to the production stage, while integrating various disciplines.

“Green Engineering”, or “Sustainable Engineering”, is a new model that essentially combines principles, values and environmental awareness with science, technology and engineering – with the goal of enabling a positive impact on local and global environments.

Green Engineering focuses on wide-ranging and preliminary planning of processes and systems, while minimizing their environmental effect. As such, Green Engineering factors in the entire product lifecycle, starting with the production of raw materials and energy, through technology and resources implemented in the production process, and to recycling and handling of the final product.   

The chemical engineering department at SCE maintains wide-ranging relationships with the processes industry in Israel. Graduates of the department have been successfully employed by various local companies and plants, including ICL, Adama, Teva, Chemagis, Intel, Rotem and Kamada, amongst others.      

Undergraduate Program

The undergraduate program in Chemical Engineering trains graduates to meet the various challenges facing a chemical engineer, such as planning and developing new processes and products, optimizing existing products, managing production processes, conducting financial analyses, implementing safety and environmental protection principles, and participating in research, amongst others.

Throughout their studies, students take several of SCE Project Oriented courses, including an advanced course on reactor and pediment planning, as well as the introductory course on nanotechnology in the chemical industry.

The scientific basis for this program is studied during the first two years, and includes courses in chemistry, physics, mathematics and biology, and their applications in chemical engineering. Students select their specialization track at the end of their second year. Third and fourth year core engineering curriculums (momentum breaks of heat and matter, reactors, fundamental elements, and others) are studied by all students collectively.

The Department of Chemical Engineering offers four specialization tracks:

  •  Process Manufacturing - This track trains future chemical engineers to integrate science and technology and to meet the diverse challenges they are faced with. These include: planning and development of new processes and products, optimization of existing processes and products, factory planning, production management, financial analysis, safety, environmental protection, monitoring, involvement in research, and more.
  •  Biotechnology (Be'er Sheva) - This track trains engineers with an orientation towards implementation and research in the fields of planning and operating biological processes. The diverse chemical industry offers a wide range of positions for chemical engineers that are geared towards biotechnology, including planning and monitoring production processes and producing biological and chemical products, food products, medications, vaccines, diagnostic tests, introducing new products or sales of technological products.
  •  Water Technology (Be'er Sheva) - In this track, students specialize in topics related to modern water treatment technologies, including industrial and residential wastewater treatment, water systems planning, desalination and more. The Chemical Engineering Department trains its graduates to be integrated in the knowledge-intensive water industry, which is continuously growing in Israel and worldwide. 
  •  Energy (Ashdod) - The energy sector is one of the most significant sectors in the economic, environmental and social development of all countries across the globe. During recent years, this segment has undergone a significant change, in terms of both finding alternative energy sources and developing processes and technologies for producing and storing energy. This track integrates various topics that are relevant to this field, including natural gas and its production, using waste to create energy, solar and photovoltaic energy, and additional aspects pertaining to the economic development of the energy sector.

During their third and fourth years, students are offered the chance to take special courses taught by industry experts, including: statistical processes, environmental engineering, malfunction detection, safety, factory planning, and others.

Specialization track selection is conducted while considering each student's preferences and academic status, as well as his or her achievements in general and in certain courses in particular. The opening of a specialization track requires a minimal number of students signed up.

Graduate Program

The program in Green Engineering is an innovative and unique program in Israel, similar to such programs studied at leading academic institutions across the globe.

Green Engineering training targets engineers in various fields who plan systems, are involved in technological and operational aspects of systems and processes, and make decisions that impact the environment, society and the economy, as well as future generations.

The program’s main objectives: To expose students to the importance of factoring in the environmental, social and economic effects on planning, design, operations and management of systems and processes; To impart technological skills that enable the bettering of human and natural environments.

The graduate program in Green Engineering with a thesis is focused on research, in-depth analysis, integration, and the acquiring of specialization regarding a particular topic. These studies also provide graduates with the skills that will enable them to deal with the complexity and multi-disciplinary requirements of green engineering.

The program is open to applicants with an undergraduate degree in engineering or natural sciences. Each student will receive a tailored program that suits his or her undergraduate background, and will be required to complete supplementary courses as necessary.

The program spans over a period of two academic years and includes a total of 36 credit points, divided accordingly: 12 credits for compulsory courses; 12 credits for elective courses in three tracks – Sustainable Environment, Alternative Energy and Environmental Management; 12 credits for the thesis project.

*The degree will only be granted with the approval of the Council for Higher Education
