The two-year Master´s programme Chemical Engineering connects the fields of chemical and biochemical engineering into unique study programme, which offers variety of options to students. The two main directions are Chemical Engineering and Biochemical Engineering, however, students can choose elective courses within two directions in order to acquire narrower specialization according to his/her own interests as well as the needs of future employers.
The Master´s programme lasts two years and comprises 120 points ECTS. It represents the second, advanced cycle in the three-cycle Bologna system of chemical engineering education. While the three-year first cycle Bachelor programme aims to provide students with conceptual understanding of the basics of chemistry and chemical engineering, the second cycle Master´s study programme offers an upgrade with the advanced knowledge of design, control and development of products, technologies and processes. Special emphasize is placed on environment protection, renewable resources and sustainable development.
The Master´s study programme is an intensive programme; highly motivated students are thus expected. The amount of students´ individual work is up to 70 %, which reflects the high importance of independent study in compare with first cycle programmes. Students are trained to generate innovative solutions and develop these solutions from idea to realization. Constituent part of study are one-month industrial project (5 ECTS) and master thesis (25 ECTS) in the last semester.
Graduates will obtain a qualification Master´s Degree in Chemical Engineering. They are broadly educated and posses analytical, synthesis, creative and social skills, that offer the rewarding professional career or solid basis for continued studies leading to doctoral degree.
During the studies, students would acquire the advanced knowledge in the fields which are regarded as strategic for global sustainable development: chemical and biochemical engineering, environmental engineering, and pharmaceutical engineering.
After finishing Master´s studies graduates should be able to use the acquired knowledge and research skills to identify and efficiently manage challenges in related fields. They should be able to perform scientific based analyses and syntheses of complex engineering problems and understand the influence of proposed solutions to the environment and society. They should connect engineering applications with financing, management and organizational aspects. They should be able to prepare written and oral presentations of their ideas, work in team environment and lead a team, and to pass the acquired knowledge to others.

The two-year Master´s programme Chemical Engineering comprises 120 ECTS. The study programme consists of two study directions, Chemical Engineering and Biochemical Engineering.
First semester is common for all students and includes obligatory fundamental courses of chemical and process engineering.
In the second semester, students select one of the two study directions. In the last semester students prepare industrial project and master thesis under supervision of appointed supervisor. Master's studies conclude with the public defence of the thesis.
