Also, see courses offered by 400 level chemical engineering students – UNIBEN 400 level Chemical Engineering courses (1st and 2nd semester).
In 500 level, chemical engineering students in uniben focus on chemical engineering courses like they have never done before. A whole lot of things about chemical engineering starts making sense. The total credit load for 500 level uniben chemical engineering student is 46.
This level includes project spread across 1st and 2nd semester with its defence normally slated for 2nd semester. The total credit load for chemical engineering 500 level project in UNIBEN is 6.
In 500 level, each department faces more of their courses than general courses.
Our emphasis on this article is on Chemical Engineering. Let’s take a look at the courses offered by 500 level Chemical engineering students in Uniben.
