Process Engineering includes two main disciplines:
As engineers, we play pivotal roles in the chemical processes used to convert raw materials into valuable products, as well as optimising the processes used to extract minerals from the ore in which it is found. By using our science and engineering theory, we are able to develop various industrial manufacturing processes and to make them more efficient. In this way, we contribute to the development of globally competitive industries in South Africa. For a more in-depth look at chemical and process engineering, read more here.
At the Department of Process Engineering at Stellenbosch University, we offer excellent teaching facilities to help you realise your dreams of becoming a chemical engineer. We also offer the expertise and experience of our highly qualified academic staff to collaborate with industry, undertaking research that is beneficial to society in terms of increased output, more effective systems and processes, as well as being more environmentally responsible. To current students, join our postgraduate team in this highly dynamic field with many exciting challenges and a diverse range of opportunities.
We're proud of our high standards of education: Our four year BEng programme is accredited by ECSA, the Engineering Council of South Africa, which entitles graduates of this course to register as professional engineers, after the initial engineer-in-training period. As ECSA is also a signatory to the Washington Accord, our BEng degree is recognised by all signatory countries of the Accord, namely Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Ireland, Japan, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States of America.
