WCAS opens ad­mis­sion for BE Chem­i­cal En­gi­neer­ing 2017 batch


Wal­jat Col­lege of Ap­plied Sciences (WCAS) in aca­demic part­ner­ship with Birla In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy, Ranchi, In­dia, started the Chem­i­cal En­gi­neer­ing pro­gramme in the aca­demic year 2016-17 to meet the in­creas­ing de­mand of this field in Oman.

The min­i­mum du­ra­tion for the com­ple­tion and award of the B E Chem­i­cal En­gi­neer­ing pro­gramme is four years (eight semesters) with 179 cred­its. The el­i­gi­bil­ity for ad­mis­sion is pass­ing in class 12th, Se­nior Sec­ondary School Cer­tifi­cate or equiv­a­lent ex­am­i­na­tion with min­i­mum 55 per cent marks in English, Math­e­mat­ics, Physics and other two sub­jects (Chem­istry/Bi­ol­ogy/ Com­puter Sci­ence/ In­for­ma­tion Prac­tice). Classes will start in Septem­ber.

The Chem­i­cal En­gi­neer­ing course is at the heart of many grow­ing fields, which fo­cuses on the de­sign, op­er­a­tion, con­trol and op­ti­mi­sa­tion of chem­i­cals and phys­i­cal and bi­o­log­i­cal pro­cesses.

The scope of the pro­gramme in­cludes food pro­cess­ing, health care, spe­cialty chem­i­cals, elec­tronic and ad­vance ma­te­ri­als, biotech­nol­ogy, mi­cro­elec­tron­ics, en­vi­ron­ment safety, poly­mer man­u­fac­ture and in­dus­trial op­er­a­tions.

The in­fra­struc­ture is de­vel­oped to map the stan­dard of the pro­gramme re­quire­ments with the lat­est equip­ment such as fluid flow, heat trans­fer, mass trans­fer, strength of ma­te­ri­als and heat op­er­a­tions. The learn­ing Re­source Cen­tre ful­fills the stu­dents’ aca­demic re­quire­ments. It has more than 40,000 books, pe­ri­od­i­cals, jour­nals and e-li­brary re­sources.

The col­lege pro­vides sep­a­rate male and fe­male off cam­pus hos­tel fa­cil­i­ties lo­cated at a 15 minute drive from the col­lege, and these are ad­min­is­tered and su­per­vised by the Stu­dent Af­fairs De­part­ment.
