The petrochemical Engineering Department at Duhok Polytechnics University is an exciting department for learning and research. Petrochemical engineers have made important contribution to the society. Actually, this department is dealing with the chemical products extracted from petroleum. The petrochemical engineers have the ability to developing the economic ways of using chemistry and engineering to turn raw materials into usable products such as medicine and plastics for industries. The courses of this department include very important subjects such as Chemical Reactors, Heat Transfer, Mass Transfer, Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Process Control, Unit Operations and Petroleum Refinery. In fact, these courses are built on a foundation in the sciences of Chemistry and Physics. Furthermore, the course contents, professional training program and projects are designed to prepare the graduates to work as petrochemical engineers for dealing with oil and gas extraction and production, rather than the chemical alteration of the raw materials. Moreover, after completion the undergraduate programs, students can work in petroleum geologists, drilling engineers, reservoir engineers and production engineers.  


our vision to build technic petrochemical engineers that will building a largest sophisticated petroleum refinery as well as petrochemicals plants in Kurdistan to cover all chemicals and petrochemical products.
