Chemical Engineering


"I am Abinaya and I have been working towards my Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering at TU Delft since 2018. TU Delft is recognised as a top university for world-class education and research, not only in the Netherlands but also internationally. The institution is regarded as one of the most prestigious universities in the Netherlands, especially in Chemical Engineering. This became clear to me during my application phase already from the impeccable recommendations I heard from every TU Delft student I interacted with.

I have chosen the Chemical Product Engineering track here to pursue my interests in research and product innovation. This track is structured really well in terms of allowing students to balance their work and social life; the workload is distributed evenly throughout the year. The programme is designed to ensure that students gain all the necessary skills through working on multi-cultural group projects in a team environment as well as conducting independent research work. After my graduation, I would like to pursue research on food technology or in pharmaceutical science, either in the industry or in academia. I strongly believe that the skills I acquire from TU Delft will open doors for me to reputed international corporations in which to pursue my ambitions."
