MSc Chemical Engineering

Society depends on products and processes that we often taken for granted but require knowledge starting with the molecule to make: goods such as cosmetics, food products and electronic equipment, as well as essential activities such as waste management and the design and production of pharmaceuticals and health care products.

What you will learn

The MSc in 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 multi-disciplinary problem solving by means of a systematic approach, incorporating considerations of sustainability, economics and social welfare into the analytical process.

The fundamental goal of the Master's Programme in Chemical Engineering is to provide students with both a breadth and a depth of knowledge sufficient to prepare them for careers in research or to work in industry at either the design or operational level.

Programme tracks

Chemical Engineering offers two tracks:

  • Chemical Product Engineering:
    Molecular engineers are involved in the design and synthesis of products ranging from pharmaceuticals to building materials.
  • Process Engineering:
    Process Engineering involves the design and operation of manufacturing processes and is essential in our technology-dependent, industrialised society.
