To make this dream come true the concept of research based teaching in laboratory performances and conceptual learning opportunities has been adopted.The department combines academics with useful work experience as mandatory elements of the degree requirements.
The first batch of Chemical Engineering has graduated in Spring 2009 engraving the history simultaneously. The Department of Chemical Engineering is aiming global employability of its graduates. To nourish these features in the students highly qualified faculty, potent facilities, knowledge conceiving environment, real time exposure and systematic knowledge transfer tactics are rigorously practiced.
Envisioned hard work has resulted in grading of CIIT at No. 7 by HEC among 114 degree awarding institutions in Pakistan. CIIT aims to be at least among top 500 universities of the world. It is imperative that the precise degree requirements would deliver high quality graduates in accordance with the world class industrial needs which is reflected by recent accreditation by Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC).
