If you opt for the Chemical & Process Engineering specialisation, you will take five required courses (32.5 credits), a number of elective courses (27.5 credits) and go on with an Internship & Job Orientation Project (20 credits) at a company in The Netherlands or abroad. You will conclude your Master’s programme with an assignment worth 40 credits. Most of our students complete their assignments at one of the University of Twente’s research groups associated with this specialisation.
Advanced Chemical Reaction Engineering: The aim of this course is to give you a deeper insight into 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 Dynamics and Control: You will be working on various assigments in groups of 2 students covering subjects such as modeling and process behavior.
Process Plant Design: The objective of this process design course is to transfer a systematic method for process design. The method taught for the analysis and 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.
Advanced Catalysis: This course covers subjects like molecular bonding in chemisorption and heterogeneous catalysis on metals, electro-photo- and plasma-catalysis.
Below you will find a list of some of the different elective courses you can take:
- Multi- component Mass Transport
- Transport Phenomena
- Cost Management and Engineering
- Advanced Colloids and Interfaces
- Process Equipment Design
- Theory of Phase Equilibria
- Lab Course in Sustainable Process Technology
- Numerical Methods for Engineers
In order to offer you more flexibility, we also offer 2,5 EC courses. Check the Programme website of Chemical Engineering for the overview, a website which aims to inform current students and employees.
