The two-year Master’s in Chemical Engineering is an internationally oriented programme and is taught entirely in English. The programme starts in September. For the specialization in Molecules & Materials Engineering starting in February is also possible, but only after approval of the Admission Committee. The pre-Master's programme starts in September.
Chemical Engineering is a broad discipline that encompasses so much more than chemistry alone. As a chemical engineer, you are at home in fields of research such as chemistry, materials science or process technology. You are also well versed in more physics-related areas, such as fluid dynamics and thermodynamics.
Chemical engineers are creative problem solvers who use their scientific and technical expertise to develop novel chemical processes, materials and products for a wide variety of applications.
In the Master’s programme in Chemical Engineering at the University of Twente, you will learn to combine the various elements of your knowledge to develop, improve and implement processes, products and materials.
This MSc programme puts you at the forefront of R&D in innovative chemical processes, novel materials and new products. You will harness the latest technology and techniques to address the challenges that society faces (health, water, food, energy, environment).
The University of Twente offers two specialisations: The Molecular & Materials Engineering track, which has a strong focus on research, and the Chemical & Process Engineering track, which also strongly focuses on design education. This Master's programme distinguishes itself from other universities in its interpretation of both tracks, especially in its focus on process technology, which, in Twente, is closely connected to materials science and chemistry.
During the Master’s programme you will benefit from our close ties with high profile research institute and lab facilities, including the the High Pressure Lab, the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology and the Technical Medical Centre. You will fulfil the role of junior researcher from early on in the programme, giving presentations, writing articles and getting involved in grant applications. It is a highly international programme. You will write and present in English and have the opportunity to complete an internship abroad.
The Master's programme in Chemical Engineering has two specializations:
