The first step is to explain what you may anticipate from the DCHE's Department of Chemical Engineering, DCHE. Thus, 'Introduction to SUN Studies / DCHE will provide you with an overview of the university's various courses as well as your future career options. 'Introduction to Petroleum Engineering' will also cover the upstream petroleum business, as well as the fundamentals of how the petroleum industry operates.

This programme can be completed in Full Time: 4 years.

Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering

The chemical engineering degree program prepares students for professional practice in chemically related careers after the bachelor's degree or an advanced degree. Chemical engineering graduates are expected to attain the following capabilities at or within a few years of graduation: apply the fundamentals of science and engineering to solve important chemical engineering problems in industry, government or academic settings; communicate effectively and demonstrate the interpersonal skills required to lead and/or participate in interdisciplinary projects; apply life-long learning to meet professional and personal goals of their chosen profession, including graduate study; articulate and practice professional, ethical, environmental and societal responsibilities, and value different global and cultural perspectives. The faculty has created a rigorous, challenging, and cutting-edge curriculum that incorporates lectures and laboratory practice in fundamental physics, mathematics, engineering science, engineering design, and the liberal arts to accomplish the program's goal.

Study methods:

The DCHE is following a semester-based system, implementing the Bologna Process. The method of study depends on lectures, reports, study groups, presentation and laboratory, practical sessions. Students will be taught in different ways, from the classroom to individual or small-group reflection. Our different teaching formats equip you to be an effective independent learner. The assessment is achieved via class workloads, midterm exams, final exams, essays, and reports. Students on the course will be spending time on independent study which includes preparation for lectures and seminars, follow-up work, wider reading, practice completion of assessment tasks, or revision.

In the first year of your English Language and Culture Bachelor's program, tuition will be in the form of lectures and tutorials:  Lectures are a way of getting an overview of a large amount of information in a short amount of time; you and your fellow students will be listening to an expert in the field. Tutorials give you a chance to actively engage with historical issues yourself. You may have to give a presentation or discuss a topic amongst yourself or work on an assignment. There are plenty of opportunities for interaction and for asking questions.


The duration of the study at the DCHE is 4 Academic years of full-time studies. Normally, an academic year starts in the first week of September to the end of June next year.

Program Course Modules taught at the Department:

Students who get a bachelor's degree from DCHE programs are prepared to work as professional engineers. A complete list of Course Modules offered by this department may be found at the following website. Each course has a standard course module code that links to its own dedicated website, which contains all the course's details. Please note that you will be routed to the Academic Profile of the lecturer presenting the course on the website for each course module.

Course Modules

Basic Courses  (B)

The undergraduate chemical engineering program is designed to provide you with a solid foundation. The Basic courses within the requirements courses for all universities in Kurdistan region designed by of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research in the Kurdistan Region. These courses are Kurdology, Technical English, Computer skills, and Academic debates, where students must complete these requirement courses for graduation.

Relevance Courses  (R)

You should have a thorough understanding of fundamental science in engineering disciplines as a College of Engineering compulsory course before diving into your rigorous chemical engineering courses throughout your junior and senior years. Physics, chemistry, general phenomena, engineering drawing, technical English, mathematics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, fluid mechanics, engineering mathematics, strength of materials, and engineering mechanics and engineering statistics are just a few examples of crucial disciplines to learn.

Core Courses (C)

The Department of Chemical Engineering required core courses to introduce you to a body of information and fundamental skills that you must master if you want to be a successful engineer. We focus on separation processes, equipment design, dynamic processes control in chemical engineering, natural gas processing and transport phenomena of the heat and mass transfer and momentum.

Elective Courses (E)

Elective courses provide you the freedom to choose and choose courses that meet a specific educational requirement, as well as allow you to pursue new interests and acquire desirable employment skills and talents. The entire list of offered classes may be seen on a DCHE program sheet.

Final Research Project

The final year project, as the name implies, is the project you must complete in your last year of study before graduating. If you don't finish the final year project by the deadline, you won't be able to graduate. This project is a formal assignment chosen by the student or small groups of students on a curriculum-related topic that requires out-of-class study and development. Students present their ideas to the rest of the class, the course faculty, and representatives from a variety of local organizations and enterprises at the end of the semester. The Final Research Project of SUN's 4th Year Students teaches you how to prepare your paper (Please click to view the document).

You will meet with your assigned supervisor on a regular basis during your involvement with your research project. These sessions are intended to help you through your project and ensure that you satisfy the work's requirements. You and your supervisor are responsible for keeping a record of your meeting and keeping track of your progress. You may print and fill out a standard SUN supervision form here for each meeting.
