This work investigates a three-dimensional Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) nanofluid flow with heat and mass transfer over a porous stretching sheet. Firstly, partial differential equations are transformed into coupled non-linear ordinary differential equations through a similarity variables transformation and solved by Galerkin Finite Element Methods (FEM). The effects of thermal radiation, viscous dissipation and chemical reaction on the fluid flow are considered. The behaviour and properties of pertinent flow parameters on the velocity, temperature and concentration profiles are presented and discussed graphically. The effects of the friction coefficient parameter, Nusselt and Sherhood numbers are also shown and considered using tables. The work is in good agreement in comparison with the recent work in literature.
