The Department of Chemical Engineering started its activities in September 2009 by establishing its first undergraduate course. It then developed its activities in 2013 by admission of students in its first graduate course.
The Department is currently active in offering the major of Chemical Engineering (Process Design) at the graduate level and Chemical Engineering at the undergraduate level.
The Department’s main research activities are currently focused on Process Design, Process Integration, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Process Control, Environmental Engineering, Catalysis, Nanostructured Materials, and Polymer Engineering.
The Department also has 5 specialized laboratories devoted to studies on Unit Operations, Fluid Mechanics, Heat Transfer, Process Control, and Nanotechnology.
Currently, this department has 4 faculty members with the academic degree of assistant professor. The academic program is focused especially on undergraduate education. In the undergraduate level, the department tries to prepare bachelor's students for entering various sectors of the industry with better quality education. After successful completion of undergraduate studies, students can continue their graduate studies in the research field of mechanical engineering or some other related program. They can also be employed as a design engineer, production engineer, quality control engineer, and other job positions. The department has laboratory and workshop facilities with modern equipment to carry out research in all areas related to Mechanical Engineering.
The biomedical engineering group at Hamedan University of Technology started accepting undergraduate students specializing in the Bioelectronics emphasis in Fall 2010 based on the strategic policies set forth by the ministry of Science, Research and Technology of the Islamic Republic of Iran elaborated in the twenty-year Outlook Program in accordance with the goal of developing and expanding fields of study required for our country's advancement. Presently, this group employs six full-time faculty members involved in training students as well as in research activities. Establishment of a graduate program of study leading to the Master of Science in bioelectronics is among the short-term goals of the department.
