Master's degree in Chemical Engineering
This master's degree aims to take graduates beyond their bachelor’s degree and acquire a higher level of expertise in chemical engineering. Graduates will be highly trained in designing products and processes related to chemical engineering. They will also have a strong professional grounding because their work placement and master's theses will be conducted primarily in the chemical industry (i.e. in companies and organisations outside the university).
Graduates in the Master's Degree in Chemical Engineering will be able to provide their leadership, management and entrepreneurial skills in:
- Industries such as petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals and food processing
- Engineering companies (advising on new projects)
- Auditing (energy, environmental, etc.)
- Wastewater treatment plants
- Public administration
- Service sector and commercial sector
- R&D laboratories and institutes (public and private)
The profile of the ideal candidate is that of an engineering graduate in an industrial discipline, preferably chemical engineering, who wishes to work as a project leader.
