Engineers in chemistry and materials sciences play a unique role in sustainable development. They manage resources, energy and the environment to develop and produce novel materials and chemical commodities. This master’s programme prepares you to face the demands of the modern technological employment field. With English as the working language, you are ready to start an international career and help shape the future.
This master’s programme aims to train students to become engineers employable in fields such as the petrochemical and polymer industry, pharmaceutical industry, food industry, biotechnology, inorganic bulk chemistry, extractive metallurgy and the recycling industry. The master’s programme encompasses two distinct profiles: Process Technology and Materials. In the Process Technology profile, the student is trained to operate in production units, consultant engineering firms and the environmental sector. The Materials profile covers production and development facilities for different types of materials. The master’s programme has a common core of 56 ECTS, ensuring a strong mutual interaction and integration between both profiles. The development of environmentally friendly and safe production processes for materials, the shaping and processing of materials into intermediate or finished products, and the optimal integration of materials in other disciplines are strongly related to the optimisation of environmenally friendly chemical processes in general.
The Process Technology profile prepares you to become an engineer who can be employed in, for example, production units (operation and optimisation of production facilities). Alternatively, you could work in an engineering group, where you’d develop new production processes that meet performance specifications. The profile mainly focuses on the chemical industry, but also looks at biotechnology and the food industry. You’ll be trained to identify, solve and avoid environmental problems.
The Materials profile thoroughly prepares you for a job in the materials technology sector of metals, polymers, ceramics and composites. You’ll be trained to become a creative engineer, capable of designing sustainable and multi-functional materials for specific applications. You’ll also develop skills to engineer intermediate or finished products with these materials, using environmentally friendly and safe production processes.
