Master of Science in 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.

The Master’s program in Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology focuses on several important tools such as innovative processes and separation techniques, biological engineering, biotechnology, catalytic engineering and polymers, including chemical process safety.

This master is structured in order that the student tackles the key fields in chemical engineering (chemical reaction engineering, biological engineering, polymer chemistry, catalyst engineering) before using globally his knowledge in order to complete a process development project placing him into an industrial production project situation.

In order to prepare his futur professional career, the student carries out an industrial internship which allows him to discover the industrial world rhythms and specificities, including team work, quality processes.
