Prepare graduates to develop chemical and biological processes that provide real solutions to the needs of the African food, agricultural and biological industries.

We expect students to develop a fundamental understanding of chemical and biological processes, and how to design and control them using the following abstractions: (a) thermodynamics, (b) chemical processes; (c) materials science; (d) biological processes; (e) biochemical processes; (f) biomaterials; (g) biotechnology; (h) control; (i) design; (j) sustainability, and (k) optimization.

The pedagogy is that of an engineering science approach that is complemented by examples of the applications of engineering science to the design and control of chemical, biochemical, and biological processes.  The objective is to help students to learn how to solve unstructured problems, while creating a perspective on how to approach the solution of unstructured problems.
