Master of Chemical Engineering
The objective of the Master programme in Petroleum Technological Processes is to develop the knowledge in the fields of oil extraction, oil – refining (processing), quality control of oil products, decontaminating of oil wastes chemical processes and technologies. The graduates of these study programme are ready for research and practical activities by organizing and out scientific investigations and solving problems of production. Master of these profession could work at enterprises of oil – refining (processing), oil – fields, scientific research institutions, at laboratories etc.
