Chemical and Process Engineering

Programme Structure for Chemical
& Process Engineering

If you opt for the Chemical & Process Engineering specialization, you will take six required courses (40 credits), a number of elective courses (15 credits) and go on with an internship (20 credits) at a company in the Netherlands or abroad. You will conclude your Master’s programme with an assignment worth 45 credits. Most of our students complete their assignment at one of the UT research groups associated with this specialization. For detailed information on the courses and curriculum you can check out the Chemical & Process Engineering Syllabus (please note: this is the syllabus for the 2016/2017 academic year, it can change).

Required Courses

  • Advanced Chemical Reaction Engineering: The aim of this course is to give you a deeper insight to the physical and chemical aspects of multiphase chemical reactors.
  • Advanced Molecular Separations: In Advanced Molecular Separations, separation technology is discussed starting from molecular properties up to full scale processes. The focus is on choosing a separation technology for given molecular properties, and the subsequent molecular design of more advanced separation technologies.
  • Process Intensification Principles: In this course students learn more about the four general and fundamental concepts of Process Intensification in the present Chemical Engineering activities.
  • Process Plant Design (15 credits): The objective of this process design course is to transfer a systematic method for process design. The method taught for the analysis and the design of chemical processes uses methods for “conceptual” design and “process systems design” which have been developed in the last twenty years. The lectures use fundamentals of this approach and translate them into applications.
