The field of chemical engineering has broadened from the traditional one, that typically based on petroleum and petrochemical industries, to be an interdisciplinary area. We aim to advance chemical engineering education through advanced research in electrochemical engineering, materials engineering and particle technology by addressing issues on materials processing for energy, biomedical, environmental and agriculture. We conduct research on designing advanced functional materials from natural resources and solid wastes through electrochemical, freeze drying, sol-gels, electrospinning methods or the combination of them. We also do research on chemical (and electrochemical) reactor design.

Apa kata alumni…

Obrolan santai sore hari selalu menjadi hal yang saya rindukan saat ini, waktu yg secara tidak formal disepakati untuk ngumpul di lab bersama Kalab (Prof. Heru), ceritanya variatif tidak selalu tentang progress riset, cerita beliau ketika kuliah dan membangun lab menjadi inspirasi saya saat ini. saya ingat saat saya pamitan ke beliau sebelum berangkat ke Balikpapan “Bapak, saya mohon pamit sekalian mohon doanya, saya diterima di ITK pak”, beliau menjawab “merintis itu tidak akan mudah tapi insyaallah kamu akan belajar banyak hal disana nantinya”. Dan benar saya yang beliau sampaikan. terima kasih bapak untuk semua kenangan dan pelajaran yang luar biasa, baik saat masih di elkim atau saat bertemu di sela agenda tertentu. – Memik Dian Pusfitasari – Institut Teknologi Kalimantan
