Master's Programme in Chemical Engineering

In today's society, resources are becoming scarce and the environmental impact of manufacturing processes is a growing concern.

Chemical engineering skills are essential in developing processing technology that is not detrimental to the environment. This might include tasks such as developing novel processes that are energy and raw material efficient, or processes to recirculate wastes to valuable products.

Chemical engineering combines chemistry, physics, mathematics, biology, and economics, aiming to turn raw materials into chemical products. These products include, for instance, fuels, commodities, specialty chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and food.
