Frequently Asked Questions

Chemical engineers analyze chemical and physical processes of matter and use newly developed technology to produce products more efficiently. Chemical engineers must have advanced knowledge of basic sciences, physics, chemistry and mathematics due to it’s the interdisciplinary nature of the field.

Chemical engineers increase the functionality of materials used in manufacturing. Chemical engineers can work in many different industries including oil, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, biotechnology, food production, catalyst, fuel and energy industries as well as the defense industry, aeronautics and space research, the aircraft industry and electronic technologies.

There are 16 professors, 3 associate professors and 3 assistant professors, for a total of 21 full-time faculty in the department. Each faculty member 20 students on average

Minor: The minor program allows successful undergraduate students to gain knowledge of another discipline in which they are interested. Students enrolled in a minor program must complete at least 12 credits from the course list of the minor program of the department. Courses that are similar identical among department curriculums are excluded.

Double Major: The goal of our department’s double major program is to provide the opportunity for successful undergraduate students to receive a second diploma from another department. Students who have the right to graduate from our department and have a 2.5 GPA in both majors receive a second diploma from their second major. The double major program consists of at least 36 credits.

Yes, students may participate in the Erasmus+ Student Mobility Program. The Erasmus+ program allows our students to be educated in other higher education institutes and gain work experience through internships in institutions and organizations to gain knowledge of practical application of theoretical knowledge. IZTECH has 98 bilateral agreements with 22 countries, and 984 students (in 765 higher education mobility activities and 219 internship activities) have participated in the student mobility program to experience another culture, language, environment, and education system.

Please contact the Office of International Relations to apply to the Erasmus+ Program.

Some of our IZTECH Chemical Engineering graduates continue their education by attending graduate programs. An significant number of graduates work in manufacturing and production industries such as electronic, energy, dye, textile, food, medical, petrochemical and chemical industries.

There 3 undergraduate laboratories, 6 research laboratories, 12 project laboratories and 9 analysis laboratories in the IZTECH Chemical Engineering Department. In addition, faculty members conduct research in their research and project laboratories with their collaborators.
