UNIBEN 400 level Chemical Engineering courses (1st and 2nd semester)
Hi guys. Today on Uniben news, we’ll be taking a look at the courses offered by 400 level Chemical Engineering Uniben students.
If you’ve not seen the courses offered by 100 level engineering students in uniben, see it here – UNIBEN 100 level Engineering courses (1st and 2nd semester).
In addition to that, here are the courses offered by 200 level Chemical engineering students – UNIBEN 200 level Chemical Engineering courses (1st and 2nd semester)
and courses offered by 300 level chemical engineering students – UNIBEN 300 level Chemical Engineering courses (1st and 2nd semester)
In 400 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. You will be in the class studying in the first semester only. Then your second semester is all about a very important 6 months industrial training in your field of study. The total credit load for 400 level uniben chemical engineering student is 31.
In 400 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 400 level Chemical engineering students in Uniben.
