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 three specialisations, 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.
- Materials Science & Engineering, a multi-disciplinary specialisation with a strong emphasis on the development of materials and science and engineering skills.
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 realise your full potential.
Before you start your Master’s programme you will choose your specialisation. Your choice will determine the core courses of your Master's programme. All electives are available to you, indepedent of the specialisation that you choose. We will advise you what electives match best with your specialisation, 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 in Chemical Engineering.
The general programme structure is:
- Required courses (32,5 credits for CPE and MME)
- Electives (27,5 credits for CPE, 22,5 credits for MME)
- Internship & Job Orientation Project (20 credits)
- Master’s assignment (40 credits for CPE, 45 credits for MME)
