M.Sc. Chemical Engineering

Budapest University of Technology and Economics | Budapest, Hungary
The education of chemical engineers and chemists has a long-standing tradition in Hungary. Hungary’s earliest chemistry department was established in 1763 at the Selmecbánya Mining School, the first school to offer practical instruction in the chemical laboratory.

Description of Chemical Engineering


The Faculty of Chemical Engineering aims for its students to acquire a profound theoretical knowledge in mathematics, physics and physical chemistry. It also aims to have its students experience, during their studies, all the types of tasks that chemical engineers encounter in their practical everyday work.

Students will acquire up-to-date laboratory skills, get acquainted with the machines and apparati used in the chemical industry, know the principles needed for their optimal operation, and develop expertise in a more specific technology within the chemical, food and light industries. In the framework of industrial training, students will learn to carry out technological design and solve research problems in the preparation for their diploma projects.

Graduates of this Faculty will be versed in:

  • The operations and personnel involved in chemical processes on an industrial scale,
  • The development of the technology and products of industrial chemical processes,
  • The design of industrial chemical processes,
  • How a chemical product or application is introduced into the national economy, and
  • The elaboration of new chemical processes, operations and technologies.

Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Hungary

Hungary Budapest University of Technology and Economics or Budapesti Mueszaki es Gazdasagtudományi Egyetem in Hungary was found in 1782 by Emperor Joseph II. It is one of the oldest technology institutes in the world. The first university in Europe to train engineers. The motto of the university is “Courses in Contemporary Engineering - harmonizing theory and practice”. The language of teaching was Hungarian, it was changed to Latin in 1860. It moved to its current campus in 1910. In 1967 two technical universities in Budapest came to form the Technical University of Budapest. 6 faculties were introduced and the Faculty of Economic and Social Sciences was established in 2000 and the university became Budapest University of Technology and Economics. There are many famous alumni in this university: Dennis Gábor who was the inventor of holography got his Nobel Prize in Physics in 1971, George Oláh got his Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1994. Nowadays the university has 110 departments, 1100 lecturers, 400 researche
