The Department of Chemical Engineering of the Osun State University is one of the two engineering departments under the College of Science, Engineering and Technology established in 2019/2020 academic session as part of the third phase of development of the University. Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) degree programme in Chemical Engineering was approved by the University Senate and the Council in the 2018/2019 academic session. The first set of students were admitted into Part I of the programme in December 2019.

The Department runs a 5-year undergraduate programme in its curriculum to acquaint the students with the basic knowledge, practices and current advances in the field of Chemical Engineering. Chemical Engineering is designed to bridge the gap between Engineering and Sciences as well as between academics and industries including oil and gas, petrochemical, paper and pulp, cosmetic, chemicals and allied industries. Chemical Engineers all over the world are playing leading roles in the current search for alternative and renewable energy sources, development of new process routes and process equipment which will be more eco-friendly. Graduates of Chemical Engineering will fit into both the traditional and alternative chemicals and energy industries. They will possess the knowledge and skills needed to design new products, processes and energy sources while making efforts to make existing chemical processes and energy cleaner and improve the efficiency of current and emerging technologies. The programme in Chemical Engineering is therefore designed to produce engineers that can meet the challenges in the afore-mentioned areas through service in governmental agencies/establishments, public and private process industries as well as being self-employed. The two semesters in the calendar of the University, tagged Harmattan and Rain, each has 17-18 weeks duration. The programme leads to the awards of Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.) degree in Chemical Engineering.

The department operates academic curricular that are tailored along the stipulations contained in the National Universities Commission (NUC) Benchmark Minimum Academic Standards and as required by the Council for the Regulation of Engineering (COREN) in Nigeria. The curricula for the programme are being regularly revised in line with the updates from the Benchmark Minimum Academic Standards (BMAS) by the National Universities Commission (NUC) and Council for the Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN).
