The Department of Chemical Engineering is in the Faculty of Engineering, within the Madonna University, Elele Campus, Rivers State.
The faculty was introduced with the sole aim of producing effective and efficient graduate engineers.
The main objective, which these programmers seek to achieve, is to provide, with a definite bias towards industrial application, well-trained high-level manpower in this area of specialization which the nation so much need for research and development, technical and equality control services. Graduate from these areas are very much demanded in both secondary and tertiary institutions, industries research and technology oriented establishment.
The department will train engineers who will immediately upon graduation become useful as problem solvers and products/quality control engineers and to translate their knowledge into practical applications.
FULL TIME UME (5-YRS) DE (4-YR)
Candidates for the 5-year programme normally seek admission through the university matriculation examination (U.M.E) organized by the joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

Advanced level in the appropriate subjects:- mathematics, physics, and chemistry. Holder of suitable engineering diploma at the national or higher national level may be considered on the merit of each individual case. In all cases, however emphasis will be placed on suitable basis qualification in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry.
