About the Department

Chemical Engineering is the most known and interesting field throughout the world gradually emerged around 1922 at United States of America. Chemical Engineering started to be offered as a program in Ethiopian higher education institutions and universities in the early of 2000s. Here at Mattu University it was launched around 2016 G.C. under faculty of Engineering and Technology (currently known by College of Engineering and Technology). The department has graduates around 186 students still today. Almost all the department today has well equipped laboratory equipment and has long time experienced staffs.

HoD's Message

Well Come to Chemical Engineering Department

As the head of the Chemical Engineering Department, I am happy and responsible for overseeing the operations and strategic direction of the department. Our department is dedicated to providing a high-quality education and conducting impactful research in the field of chemical engineering.

At our department, we strive to create a stimulating learning environment that fosters creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills. We offer a comprehensive curriculum that covers a wide range of subjects, including chemical thermodynamics, process design, reaction engineering, and environmental engineering. Our goal is to equip students with a strong foundation in theoretical knowledge, as well as practical skills through hands-on laboratory experiments and industrial training.

 In our department, we recognize the critical role of chemical engineering in advancing agricultural practices and improving the efficiency, sustainability, and productivity of agricultural processes. We offer a specialized curriculum that combines the fundamental principles of chemical engineering with a deep understanding of agricultural systems and technologies. In addition to classroom learning, our department is actively involved in cutting-edge research. We encourage faculty members and students to engage in research projects that address various challenges faced by Ethiopia and the global community. Our research efforts focus on areas such as sustainable energy, renewable resources, waste management, and environmentally friendly processes.

As the Department Head I am committed to fostering a collaborative and inclusive environment where students and faculty can thrive. We encourage interdisciplinary collaborations and partnerships with industry to ensure that our graduates are well-prepared to contribute to Ethiopia's industrial growth.

Overall, our department aims to produce skilled chemical engineers who are not only technically proficient but also possess strong leadership qualities and a deep sense of social responsibility. By nurturing the next generation of chemical engineers, we are dedicated to making a positive impact on Ethiopia's development and addressing the pressing challenges of our time. By effectively communicating these messages, the department can inspire its members, contribute to the growth of chemical engineering in Ethiopia, and make a positive impact on society.

Overall, the Chemical Engineering Department is dedicated to producing well-rounded professionals who can contribute to Ethiopia's development and play a significant role in shaping the country's future. Together, we can shape a bright and prosperous future for our community, and nation.
