The Master of Chemical and Materials Engineering educates students to become innovative engineers who will contribute to their profession and to society.
Engineers in chemistry and materials sciences play a unique role in sustainable development, where they must manage resources, energy and the environment in order to develop and produce novel materials and chemical commodities. Our graduates are prepared to face the demands of the modern technological employment field and for an international career with English as their professional language.
Materials and chemical commodities are essential in many technological sectors. Graduates of our department are in high demand in various industrial sectors, and our alumni are making an impact around the world in research, manufacturing, business management and education.
Graduates are found in the biomedical biotechnology, chemical engineering, materials for energy, electronic, optical, (in) organic and metallic materials, the pharmaceutical industry, government positions and teaching.
For this 2 years double degree programme the tuirion fees are as follows:

The Master in Chemical and Material Engineering (120 ECTS) offers a solid core of courses in both of these engineering fields. The integrated and the multidisciplinary approach provides students up-to-date knowledge enabling them to propose innovative engineering solutions in numerous modern technological sectors. Students have the possibility to specialize in Process technology or Material Science.
The Master of Chemical and Materials Engineering program consists of two profiles: Process Technology and Materials Science
The Process Technology orientation trains students to become engineers who are employable and innovative both in production units (operation and optimization of production facilities) and in engineering groups (develop new production units that meet desired performance specifications). An emphasis is placed on the biotechnology and food industries. Students are also trained to identify, solve and avoid environmental problems including waste management, water, air and soil pollution.
The Materials Science orientation prepares students for the materials and materials technology sectors (metals, polymers, ceramics and composites). Students are trained to become creative engineers capable of designing sustainable multi-functional materials which meet specific applications. Students also have the capacity to contribute to the whole life-cycle of materials from their processing into semi or full end products using environmentally friendly and safe production processes to their recycling.
Admission decisions for students from other institutions are based upon evaluation of a complete application file. Students with a bachelor in the same field of study have direct access after the evaluation of their application file. The admission for holders of another engineering degree is based upon evaluation and approval by the curriculum council.
Non EEA students/nationals need to provide a proof of sufficient knowledge of English by meeting one of the following criteria:
No work experience is required.
VUB is registered with the Flemish government of Belgium as an institution of higher education.
The VUB programmes are accredited by the Dutch-Flemish Accreditation Organisation (NVAO, Nederlands-Vlaamse Accreditatie Organisatie). This official organisation was established by an international treaty between the Flemish and the Dutch governments to ensure the quality of higher education in both the Netherlands and Flanders.
Fortunately enough I was able to find StudyPortals. Right from the start of the application to getting the confirmation of admission I was using StudyPortals.
