The two-year Master’s in Chemical Engineering is a full-time programme worth 120 ECTS credits, taught entirely in English and leading to the title of Master of Science (MSc). You can join the programme in September. The programme offers 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, economy, environment and meeting society’s needs;
- Molecular & Materials Engineering, which centres on the design, manufacture, application and characterization of new materials and (bio)molecular structures with high-tech features.
You can also take advantage of special tracks for outstanding and ambitious students. Our three master Honours Programmes, Change Leaders, Design Honours, and Research Honours, enable you to realize your full potential.
In 2011, our Master’s programme in Chemical Engineering joined the Erasmus Mundus Master’s in Membrane Engineering (EM3E).
Before you start your Master’s programme you will choose your specialization. Your choice will determine the core courses of your Master's programme. All electives are available to you, indepedent of the spezialization that you choose. We will advise you what electives match best with your spezialization, taking your future career into consideration. Both tracks have a set curriculum with a fixed number of required courses but plenty of room for choice. You can choose both technical and non-technical electives.
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 perform 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 programme in Chemical Engineering.
The general programme structure is:
- Required courses (32,5 credits for CPE, 37,5 credits for MME)
- Electives (27,5 credits for CPE, 17,5 credits for MME)
- Internship & Job Orientation Project (20 credits)
- Master’s assignment (40 credits for CPE, 45 credits for MME)

UT's Master's Programme Chemical Engineering joined the Erasmus Mundus Master in Membrane Engineering for a sustainable World (EM3E-4SW). In addition, you have the possibility to pursue a double degree and obtain your master's degree at both the University of Twente and the University of Parma in Italy. Both possibilities offer a perfect opportunity to explore different cultures and scientific approaches.
