RESEARCH

  • Innovation in research

.

Since the establishment of the department, research in chemical and biochemical has been growing rapidly. The research covered wide aspects of chemical engineering which could be divided into several research groups. Researches carried out had been acknowledged at university, national and international levels in the form of patents as well as various accolades.

Fundings for the research are obtained from Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (i.e. Technofund, Science Fund), Grant Research University (GUP) and foreign agencies like Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA).
