Chemical Engineering N4 – N6 is an area of engineering that applies physical sciences (physics and chemistry), life sciences (microbiology and biochemistry), together with applied mathematics and economics to produce, transform, transport, and properly use chemicals, materials, and energy. This qualification is designed to provide the theory of Chemical Engineering. You can attain a National Certificate or Diploma once you have worked 24 months.

Chemical engineering contributes to various aspects of human life, ranging from the production of food and energy; to the provision of clean water and sanitation; to the provision of shelter and health care; and other value-added commodities using chemical, biological and Physico-chemical processes. Sadly, unintended by-products of these processes have caused significant damage to human lives and the ecosystem. The training provided in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Greenview college equips our graduates with the required skills that could be directed at eliminating or minimizing the negative ecological footprints of unsustainable chemical engineering activities by closing the material cycles and creating value-added commodities from the waste products of these processes using green and sustainable processes as illustrated below. 

Furthermore, the training is interdisciplinary aiming at developing and producing graduates with critical thinking ability to provide solutions to the societal problems confronting South Africa, Africa, and the world at large. Our lecturers and researchers have excellent academic credentials alloyed with a wealth of knowledge and experience to provide sustainable training to our graduates. The Department is equally equipped with state-of-the-art facilities to support our academic and research programs.
