Program description

Chemical engineering plays an important role to solve many societal, economical, social and ethical problems. For example the development of new sorts of energy, new materials and new molecules.

The Master’s degree program in Chemical Engineering will train you to become a chemical engineer with a high level of professional expertise. The program also gives attention to social developments and issues. The research focus in the Master’s program in Chemical Engineering is on the areas of organic and supramolecular chemistry, homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, process engineering and materials science.

This degree will give you a wide range of options in the employment market. This broadly based program offers a choice of specializations in the fields of Chemistry, Materials Science and Process Engineering. Teaching and research are closely linked, which means that a large part of the content of the program is based on the department’s own research activities. The program has a strong international position because of the presence of a number of leading research schools and institutes.

Three specialisations in chemical engineering are offered: Process Engineering; Molecular Engineering; Polymers and Composites. Each specialization is characterised by an obligatory program and a graduation project.

Instruction Modes
In general the principle of design-based learning is applied, notebook assisted learning by using state-of-the-art ICT (dense network of branches all over the campus), lectures, practical assignments, exercises, project groups, internship, research project.

To educate chemical engineers at an academic level in one of the specializations offered. The engineer will be a broadly oriented, flexible and critically thinking professional. He/She will be able to provide technical/scientific solutions for problems and questions related to process and product engineering, taking into account the economic, social, environmental and ethical aspects.

Chemical Engineering Specializations

Within the Chemical Engineering program, students can choose from three specialisations. Specializations include:

Process Engineering
For the design and optimization of large-scale production facilities of chemical products it is essential to have an in-depth understanding of process engineering. In the Process Engineering Master's track you learn to design chemical processes and to integrate knowledge of transport phenomena, chemical reactor design, separation technology, plant design, process development and process control. 

Molecular Engineering
Molecular engineers play a prominent role in developing and improving chemical systems ranging from new catalysts to biomedical materials. They operate at the frontiers of science, learning the rules that govern chemical self-assembly, and bring self-assembly applications to new areas like organic solar cells and responsive materials.

Advanced Polymer Materials
By designing polymers you design everyday life. As a polymer chemist or technologist you will work on the development of new or existing materials and processes. The Advanced Polymer Materials Master's track offers you this possibility in the field of polymer chemistry, polymer technology, or materials and coatings technology.

Each Chemical Engineering specialization is characterised by an obligatory program and a graduation project.
