Chemical engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with manufacture of products through chemical processes and the technologies of chemical production. This study field is based on combination of physical sciences, life sciences, mathematics and economics. Chemical engineering differs from chemistry because of focusing on large scales. This study field has two groups: the first group deals with chemical processes (design, manufacture and operation of plants and machinery), while the second group deals with new substances development. Graduates can work at various industries, especially oil and petrochemical industry, nuclear energy, food production, development of new sources of energy and medicine.
MSc Clean Fossil and Alternative Fuels Energy gives engineering students cutting-edge knowledge plus the ability to develop entrepreneurial skills and innovative thinking in the fossil-based power industry and chemical fuels and/or renewable resources fields – all in an international environment with close industrial connections.
The MSc in Petroleum Production Engineering is specifically designed by Robert Gordon University (RGU) to attract graduates in engineering or personnel with at least 2 years of previous relative experience in the sector. The course structure is also approved by and abides to the guidelines set by the Energy Institute (EI).
This master programme is fully lectured in English and seeks to provide technological training for professional purposes in the several fields covered by Chemical Engineering, including chemical process engineering, control and process optimization, besides the specialization in polymers, environmental technology and biotechnology.
2-year Master's program provides thorough knowledge and skills in the areas of laboratory and technological measurements, testing and chemical analysis methods, quality systems, metrology and related economic and legal aspects.
This four-year programme offers an extra year on top of the Biochemical Engineering BEng in which to acquire hands-on practical research experience and advanced design skills. Several optional routes provide flexibility to meet students' individual requirements.
Biotechnology constitutes one of the key disciplines of the 21st century, with enormous potential for growth and professional development. On the one hand that is due to progress made in biomedical research, leading to the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. At the same time the chemical industry is showing a growing interest in biotechnological processes to reduce its environmental footprint and increase the efficiency of the methods employed. In addition to the pharmaceutical, chemical and food industries, which make use of biotechnological processes in varying degrees, there is now a biotechnology-based industry in its own right, in which added value is generated primarily with the help of biotechnological principles.
The aim of the programme is to reach international engineering standards within: Research and development; Planning, production and maintenance; Exploitation, transportation, and treatment considering economic and environmental aspects as well as health, safety, and working environment.
The Chemical Engineering programme at Aalborg University Esbjerg, Denmark, allows you to combine your creative and technical skills in a programme with focus on research and development as well as planning and implementation of operation and maintenance tasks within chemical and chemically related production.
The programme gives students scientific and technological knowledge needed in process industry, e.g. in pulp and paper, chemical and metallurgical industry.
The aim of the Master's Degree in Chemical Science and Technology is to focus on student preferences for different specialisations in environmental chemistry and automation , material science , biological , biosanitary and biomedical chemistry , various aspects of organic chemistry and food engineering .
To be a chemical engineer you need a keen, creative mind, and expertise that besides chemistry spans fields such as fluid dynamics, thermodynamics and applied mathematics.
The Master of Science, delivered by IPB (Bordeaux Institute of Technology), is in English and has been established by ENSCBP as an answer to the rapid evolution of today’s needs in industry and academics, allowing the students to adapt efficiently to the most recent technological innovations. It is based on the well-established know-how of ENSCBP and its partner laboratories concerning topics at the interface between chemistry, physics and biology.
