In a rapid and ever-changing world, the role and impact of modern chemical processes has never been more important. But to ensure sustainability and economic viability in commercial products and processes, efficiency, flexibility, safety, and minimal environmental impact are of the utmost importance.
This master’s programme will provide you with the advanced knowledge and skills necessary to refine these processes, and to streamline the conversion of commodities into finished products. You will investigate how to decrease the use of scarce natural resources and fossil fuels and replace them with renewable alternatives, how to turn waste into new products, minimise emissions and develop the next generation of exhaust-treatments and renewable fuels. In these areas and many more, chemical engineers have an essential role to play in the transition to a sustainable society.
The programme will equip you with comprehensive knowledge of aspects of chemical engineering central to the production of materials and energy. You will learn to design and evaluate sustainable and innovative processes and systems, and to plan, perform, and evaluate experiments at lab, pilot, and plant scale. You will also receive extensive education and training in critical analysis and modelling of new chemical phenomena, and look at questions and considerations in sustainability and environmental issues.
The courses in the programme cover the bases of sustainable technology, production of renewable materials and efficiency in energy usage. More in-depth knowledge is obtained through three profile tracks available within the programme: Sustainable development, Modelling and Design, and Forest Based Products and Related Processes. Topics such as process design, biorefining and cellulose technology form some of the fundamental areas of the programme.
Most of the courses in the programme will consist of group-work with open-ended, complex, real-life scenarios. You will have the opportunity to try alternative strategies and evaluate your ideas in comparison with existing industrial solutions. You will be trained to identify and formulate problems, to collect, interpret and critically examine technical data and information, and to embrace challenges with a bold and fearless attitude, in a professional and international atmosphere.
