Society depends on products like foods, cosmetics and electronic equipment, as well as essential processes like the production of useful chemicals from renewable resources, energy production and storage and good waste management. People often take these everyday products and processes for granted and are unaware of the fact that fundamental molecular knowledge and outstanding engineering skills are of pivotal importance to them.
Chemical Engineering is the key discipline in the development of chemical products and processes to fulfil society’s current and future needs, and covers a wide range of subjects from the molecular level to large-scale chemical manufacturing processes.
What you will learn
MSc Chemical Engineering addresses a wide range of subjects at all levels: molecular science, including the emerging field of nanochemical engineering, the design and analysis of chemical reactors and the application of chemical engineering in manufacturing processes with a strong emphasis on innovative thinking. The programme stresses a systematic approach to solving multidisciplinary problems, in which sustainability, economics and social welfare are important aspects.
The fundamental goal of the programme is to provide students with both a breadth and a depth of knowledge to prepare them for careers in research or to work in industry at either the design or the operational level.
