The two-year Master’s in Chemical Engineering is a full-time programme worth 120 credits, taught entirely in English and leading to the title Master of Science (MSc). You can join the programme in September or February. It has two specializations, each focusing on a key aspect of chemical engineering:
- Chemical & Process Engineering, which focuses on designing processes that deliver optimum performance in terms of technology, the economy, the environment and meeting society’s needs;
- Molecular & Materials Engineering, which centres on the design, manufacture, application and characterization of new materials with high-tech features.
You can also take advantage of special tracks for outstanding and ambitious students. Our graduate school, dual Master’s and fast-track programmes enable you to realize your full potential.
In 2011, our Master’s programme Chemical Engineering joined the Erasmus Mundus Master’s in Membrane Engineering (EM3E). The programme Chemical Engineering also offers Double Degree programmes.
You will choose your specialization before you start your Master’s programme and your choice will determine the core courses and electives available to you. Both tracks have a set curriculum with a fixed number of required courses but plenty of room for choice. You are advised to identify your interests and abilities at an early stage with a view to choosing the UT chemical research group where you want to do your Master’s assignment. This is important, as some research groups require you to take specific electives. Consult the website for more information about how to plan your Master’s in Chemical Engineering.
The general programme structure for both specializations is:
- Required courses (35 or 40 credits, depending on the specialization)
- Electives (20 or 15 credits, depending on the specialization )
- Internship (20 credits)
- Master’s assignment (45 credits)
