Career Opportunities
Chemical Engineers are professionals who work in various industries involved in the conversion of one chemical form to the other. In these various industries, the chemical engineer does the work of designing, constructing, operating and maintaining the plants (hardware/equipment) and processes (techniques/methodologies) that convert one chemical form to another that is of more utility to humanity or that is less harmful to the environment.
Some of the specific industries in Kenya where Chemical Engineers serve include: petrochemicals processing, construction/building materials processing, food processing, pharmaceutics and home care products manufacturing. Internationally, they serve an even wider role and you will also find them working in industries as diverse as semi-conductor manufacturing, environmental technology, biotechnology.

List of Programmes - Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering

Due to the relative closeness in objectives between industrial and manufacturing engineering, the two fields of engineering are usually found to be close and complementary to each other in the solution of respective engineering problems. Currently in Kenya, there is no programme of study dedicated to industrial and manufacturing engineering as such there is some opportunity to study industrial and manufacturing engineering as part of programmes in the school of mechanical and process engineering.

Career Opportunities 

Careers in industrial and manufacturing engineering. Work as manufacturing engineers in design, fabrication, and analysis of products and systems and the use of modern technologies chiefly based on electronics and informatics.
