The development of systems and technologies has always been the key component in bringing improvements in chemical industries.  The stress in the industry has been shifting from resource-based economics to knowledge-based economics to face the global challenges. The integration of computing tools and chemical engineering science has led to major changes in process design, operation, and optimization and management techniques.  Relatively safer and environmental compliant plants with higher quality production rates are the need of the changing world.  The Process System Engineering (PSE) Group led by Dr. –Ing. Naveed Ramzan is working in partnership with public, private and international resource centers to promote R&D activity and development of industry.  The principal areas of interest of PSE group are:          

  • Process Modeling and Simulation
  • Process Development, Design and Optimization
  • Process Safely and Risk Management
  • Process Control and Operation
Group Leader
  • Dr. –Ing. Naveed Ramzan
Group Members
  • Prof. Dr. Shahid Naveed
  • Mr. Muhammad Faheem
