Program Description

Master in Chemical Engineering


Master in Chemical Engineering

Objectives: Preparing professionals, researchers, managers and entrepreneurs required by the chemical and affiliate industries
– alimentary and consumption products industry, coatings and paintings, textile, lubricants, paper, active pharmaceutical ingredients and pharmaceuticals, polymers, environmental treatment or fuels and energetic, between other – in the field of the Chemical Engineering profession, for the development, research, preparation of products, processes and services with especial emphasis in the industrial management and costs optimization with excellence in the application of the techniques and tools of the Chemical Engineering, even in fields in its frontiers, as biotechnology or nanotechnology, always with criteria of safety, feasibility and responsibility.

The Master of Science in Chemical Engineering foresees three profiles that will develop in the alumni special competences focused on the activity:

  • Professional: to be prepared for working industry as Chemical Engineer.
  • Research: oriented to prepare a PhD.
  • Business: oriented to the creation and direction of technologically based companies.


A newest Master structure has been designed, so the students will develop with the maximum performance their
best qualities for the Chemical Engineering profession. For this:

  • The Master is structured around the project of an industrial facility, which will be carried by teams of students, improving the capacities of team working and leadership.
  • The key matters of the Master are developed in an intensive form to give support to the distinct phases of the project execution.
  • The Master’s academia work in narrow collaboration with the students.
  • There is a strong implication of the industry, so the content of the program of the Master connects with the current needs of the industry.
  • More than 50% of the Master contents are given in English, favoring the internationalization of its graduates.
  • The Master includes optional subjects that allow reinforcing the professional, business and research profiles.
  • The research profile is designed to be able to continue with the PhD studies.

Aimed at

The Master is focused on engineers and graduates in areas near to Chemical Engineering, that wish to develop advanced competences at the highest level of the profession of Chemical Engineer.


The Master in Chemical Engineering consists of 90 ECTS, structured in two semesters of 30 ECTS, plus a third semester of 30 ECTS for the realization of the Master Thesis, which will be exposed in a public session.


€180 ECTS (year 2012/13).

Special terms of access and matriculation are reserved for IQS graduates.
