Chemical engineering and biotechnology

Scaling up from a laboratory reaction to an industrial process is the main challenge for chemical engineers. This is a complicated optimization problem at many levels: environmental impact, energy consumption and cost must be minimized and the quality and process safety maximized.

Program’s objectives

This Master’s program focuses on several important tools such as innovative processes and separation techniques, biological engineering, biotechnology, catalytic engineering and polymers, and chemical process safety.

The program prepares the students for a career in industry requiring solid knowledge of the methods in chemical processes, development, biotechnology and safety processes.
