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.
In addition to becoming a highly skilled technical expert, you learn to consider the importance of economic and environmental aspects and learn to work and navigate in an international environment. The globalised world we live in demands well developed cooperation skills that you will require through the exciting joint student projects performed in close cooperation with the industry.
The global society is in increasing need of chemical engineers that understand complicated chemical and biochemical processes and are capable of innovative thinking concerning development of novel techniques and products for a better utilisation of our resources and protection of the environment.
In addition to considerable increments in your theoretical and experimental levels you will get fundamental knowledge concerning the chemical industry, how it is organised and central processes and unit operations. You learn to develop mathematical models of the processes you are investigating and to apply different types of software for simulation and optimisation.
Research within the university supporting this programme is diverse in the areas of:
Through the extensive project work you will have plenty of opportunity to test you own ideas in real life and in cooperation with both local Danish as well as international companies. As a student, this provides you with good insight into the world outside of the university and with a professional network you can use for future job opportunities.
Job opportunities are excellent when graduating from the Chemical Engineering programme. Almost all graduates from the programme are employed immediately after or even before they leave campus.
As a graduate, your future workplace could be in a consultant company, in local, national or international authorities or in the private industrial sector. The high degree of employment security and the high salary is the common factor in all these types of companies.
As a graduate from Chemical Engineering, you are qualified to work in the following fields:
During 3rd semester, you can choose between the following electives, each providing 30 ECTS:
During 3rd and 4th semester, you will do projects within self-chosen subjects. The project can be split into two separate projects or be a long one year Master's thesis project. Two projects are ideal if you want to pursue the option of studying one semester abroad in another country or to include an internship in a company as part of your education.
Projects during the last semesters are typically carried out in association with on-going research projects or in cooperation with external cooperation partners. Many students are offered job opportunities in continuation of this cooperation.
The projects these last two semesters are usually organised in smaller student groups of two or three members or as individual projects. No planned courses are offered, but it is possible to arrange smaller courses (study circles) that relate to the specific subjects you as student choose to engage in.
You only need to take one of these language tests:
Minimum required score:
The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.
Minimum required score:
The TOEFL – or Test OF English as a Foreign Language – offers a paper-based test (PBT). The final, overall PBT score ranges between 310 and 677, and is based on an average taken from the three test components (listening, structure, and reading). The writing part of this test is scored separately on a scale of 0-6. Read more about TOEFL (PBT).
Minimum required score:
The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).
If you wish to register for the Master’s programme in Chemical Engineering, you must have a Bachelor’s degree or the equivalent in chemical engineering awarded by a recognised university or institution of higher education.
Please make sure you send your application form and further documentation via post to the International Office by the required deadline.
Furthermore please note the official language requirements for international students applying to Aalborg University are:
The living costs include the total expenses per month, covering accommodation, public transportation, utilities (electricity, internet), books and groceries.
