Master's Programme in Chemical Engineering and Water Treatment

Chemical engineering is a highly interdisciplinary field concerned with diverse materials and processes.

It covers many scientific and technological areas essential for human well-being, a clean environment and the sustainable use of natural resources.

In today's society, resources are becoming scarce and the environmental impact of manufacturing processes is a matter of growing concern. It is important to develop technology which is not harmful to the environment, to use natural resources rationally, and to minimise process waste.

Every day, two million tons of sewage and industrial and agricultural wastewater is discharged into the water bodies. Especially water treatment is inadequate in many parts of the world, and legislation concerning the wastewater is constantly being tightened. Moreover, sustainability challenges us to reflect on water treatment in different ways.

Instead of focusing on end-of-pipe treatment for pollution prevention, we should shift towards optimal resource utilisation and enhanced water recycling. On this basis, it is obvious that novel and sustainable materials and technologies for water treatment are needed.

In this programme, you may choose to specialise either in Chemical and Process Engineering or Water Treatment
