Why Chemical Engineering at the University of Twente?


Chemical Engineering at the University of Twente offers two specializations. One is Chemical & Process Engineering. In this course, you will focus on developing and designing processes that deliver optimum performance in terms of technology, economy, environment and meeting society’s needs. The other specialization is Molecular & Materials Engineering.
