The Department of Chemical Engineering (DCE) of the Engineering  School of the University of Patras was established in 1977. The mission of DCE is to produce chemical engineers educated in research, development and optimization of methods for production of industrial products, in materials technology, in environmental protection and in energy production.
 
DCE follows the modern trends and international dynamics of the science of chemical engineering, which pioneers in areas such as biotechnology and biological engineering, nanotechnology and renewable and alternative energy forms, being a center of excellence in several of these areas.

Education and research in DCE are carried out according to international quality standards and have resulted in numerous distinctions of the Department, faculty and alumni who have proven able to meet successfully in the highly competitive Greek, European and international environment.
 
Faculty and staff members in DCE are involved in major research projects funded by the European Union, the Greek General Secretariat for Research and Technology (GSRT), other Greek organizations and industry, in collaboration with some of the top universities and research centers globally.
 
The Department of Chemical Engineering is housed in two modern buildings located at the University of Patras Campus, with magnificent views of the mountains of Peloponnese and the Gulf of Patras.

Additional information about the people, the studies and the research activities in DCE can be found in the Department website, in the Curriculum of the Department and in the Graduate Studies Guide.
