Chemistry is important for engineers to have knowledge of chemistry as those may face problems in fields as diverse as design and development of new materials, quality control and environmental engineering that are basically chemistry oriented in nature. It is the back bone in designing and understanding the nature of various engineering materials, Many advances in engineering and technology either produce a chemical demand like polymers, chemical developments for their application in powder metallurgy and alloys, preventing methods of pollution etc. Currently electronics and computer field require bio polymers and nano-materials. Electrical engineers require proper conducting materials. Mechanical engineers are in search of micro fluids and civil engineers are looking for environment friendly materials.
Department of Engineering Chemistry is one of the supporting department in the Technological University (Hmawbi). It nurtures students who are capable of creativity and making benefits to the environment applying advanced technologies that they learnt in university. There are two semester in each academic year. In each semester, there are 4 chapters that are related to the engineering fields. The teachers in our department teach the students not only the theories but also the practical works effectively.
