Program Description

Master Degree in Chemical and Process Engineering

University of Bologna School of Engineering and Architecture

A Masters degree in Chemical Engineering is key to professional success in several modern and innovative industrial sectors.

Smart materials, sustainable processes for energy production, industrial biotechnologies, and advanced pharmaceutical applications are only some of the examples of sectors where the expertise of chemical engineers is sought and highly rewarded.

Furthermore, the conventional world-players as the chemical and Oil&Gas field are facing a context of increasing innovation and internationalization, thus requiring global competences and higher qualifications of the chemical engineers recruited.

The STEM (Sustainable Technologies and biotechnologies for Energy and Materials) international curriculum of the Masters in Chemical and Process Engineering was built to meet these needs.

The course is a two-years Master “second cycle Degree” officially recognized under the “Bologna Process”, requiring the students to obtain 120 ECTS. The program is two years in duration and is divided into four terms. In the first year, courses are mainly oriented to address basic issues of the Master’s studies: advanced thermodynamics and transport phenomena, introduction to basic design, and introduction to industrial safety. In the second year, both compulsory and elective courses are offered on specialized topics, such as materials, energy and environmental processes and industrial biotechnologies.

The program is entirely taught in English, and requires the student a proficient use of the English language.

At the end of the program, a degree titled "Master in Chemical Engineering" (Laurea Magistrale in Ingegneria Chimica, Classe LM-22) is awarded and is valid under Italian law.

A Dual Degree Agreement is active with Columbia University in the City of New York (USA). Applicants, upon completing successfully the program, will obtain both the Laurea Magistrale from Bologna University and the Master of Science in Chemical Engineering from Columbia University.

Graduates of the program will have the training to go on to work in numerous fields, including the conventional chemical and process industry (petrochemical, specialty chemicals, pharmaceutical), the wide-spread energy industrial sectors (up-stream and down-stream Oil&Gas, energy generation, green energy production), and many other specific sectors (material production, food technologies, industrial biotechnologies, etc.). Completion of the STEM Masters degree can also lead to entering PhD. level studies.

Option on Off-Shore and Oil&Gas Engineering

Students enrolled in the STEM curriculum will have the option to select in the second year courses dedicated to off-shore engineering and oil&gas technologies, with a specific focus on up-stream and mid-stream applications.

The courses will be held in the Ravenna Campus, and the content has been strongly oriented to the obtainment of the professional skills necessary to operate in the Oil&Gas sector. The companies of the Ravenna off-shore district accepted to make available internships and activities suitable to complete the master graduation thesis.
