The fundamental goal of the Master program 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.
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.
The MSc in Chemical Engineering addresses a wide range of subjects at all levels: molecular science, including the emerging field of nano-chemical 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 program stresses multi-disciplinary problem solving by means of a systematic approach, incorporating considerations of sustainability, economics and social welfare into the analytical process.
Chemical Engineering offers three tracks:
• Molecular 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, industrialized society.
• Nuclear Science & Engineering:
Nuclear science and engineering encompasses the study and use of nuclear materials and the equipment that makes use of nuclear materials for medical, energy, and analytical applications. At TU Delft, the focus of the Nuclear Science & Engineering track is on nuclear engineering and its applications making use of radioisotopes.
Chemical Engineering (Molecular Thermodynamics, Molecular Transport Phenomena); Molecular Engineering (Synthesis Strategies, Nano-Structured Materials, Quantum Mechanics, Spectroscopy); Process Engineering (Reactors and Kinetics, Applied Transport Phenomena, Process Dynamics and Control); Nuclear Science & Engineering (Nuclear Science, Nuclear Chemistry, Chemistry of the Nuclear Fuel Cycle).
To provide students with a solid foundation in chemical engineering, while preparing them for a broad range of career opportunities. The primary emphasis is on chemical engineering fundamentals, while allowing students to personalize their curriculum to prepare them for traditional chemical engineering careers and for recent diversification in areas such as nanotechnology.
