The Department of Chemical Engineering was established in 2010 with an initial enrolment of 50 students. WEC having a great advantage of its proximity to Pakistan's largest concentration of industrial units which gives its students a hands-on experience to the theoretical knowledge imparted. The major areas such as Chemical, Petroleum, Refining, Cement, Glass, Fertilizers, Textiles, Explosives and Ordnance, being most relevant to Chemical Engineering puts the department at a great advantage.
The department has gained considerable prestige and standing in the academic and industrial world due to our highly motivated and outstanding faculty, hardworking and dedicated supporting staff and well equipped laboratories covering every aspect of Chemical Engineering education.
The graduates of this department contribute directly to the industrial and economic growth of the country. The curricular of the department is in line with the recommendation of Higher Education Commission. The objective of the courses is to prepare students for all activities related to the operation, design, maintenance, management and supervision of all chemical, bio-chemical and polymer plants. In addition to the conventional Chemical Engineering there is emphasis on pollution control and environmental processes, biochemical processes, materials science and material processing, heterogeneous catalysis, reaction engineering, engineering economics and entrepreneurial skills. At the department, we are conscious that our graduates will be employed in industries based on nanotechnology, biotechnology and higher performance composite materials. Non- Conventional lectures, talks and projects are therefore a part of our program where eminent experts in the relevant field are invited to conduct seminars or deliver lectures on the subject.
We are also aware of the global prospective of Chemical Engineering. The graduating students are encouraged, advised, assisted and recommended to apply for higher education/job both at national and international level.

Civil engineering is a profession that offers plenty of visual payoff. Take a look around, and you'll see the work of civil engineers everywhere - from buildings and bridges to roads and reservoirs. "To create things, to actually see them being built ... it's very rewarding to see the results of what you saw on paper. It gives you a lot of personal satisfaction," says Andrew Herrmann, former president of the American Society of Civil Engineers and Principal with the engineering firm Hardesty & Hanover. These professionals design and oversee the construction and maintenance of buildings and infrastructure such as highways, tunnels, rail systems, airports and water supply and sewage systems. The job includes analysis - especially in the planning stage - studying survey reports and maps, breaking down construction costs and considering government regulations and potential environmental hazards. Civil engineers also may test soils and building materials, provide cost estimates for equipment and labor, and use software to plan and design systems and structures.
There are many career paths within this field. Specialties include architectural, structural, transportation, traffic, water resources and geotechnical engineering. Civil engineers may work for state or local governments or in the private sector at consulting or construction firms. Some civil engineers hold supervisory or administrative positions, while others pursue careers in design, construction or teaching.
Provide quality education with matching professional skills, and ethical values to prepare competent and socially responsible engineers who can meet the present and future challenges and contribute positively towards economic development of the society.
The Department of Chemical Engineering aims to foster, achieve and sustain unmatched excellence in professional education through conducive learning environment by undertaking comprehensive research to inculcate entrepreneurial attitude and instill moral and ethical values to serve the society.
