Education and research are closely integrated within the Chemical Engineering Master's program from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), which helps you stay abreast of the latest developments within the discipline. You become familiar with all the latest tools and technologies used by chemical engineers. You can define a personal study program that satisfies your own wishes and preferences.
As a chemical engineer you will be able to come up with technical solutions for problems and issues in relation to process and product technology. In finding these solutions, chemical engineers work closely with experts from other specializations, taking into account the related economical, social, environmental and ethical aspects.
The Chemical Engineering two-year Master's program offers you the opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge in one of the two Master's tracks within the program. When applying for the Master's program in Chemical Engineering you need to make a choice between one of the following tracks:
The MSc program in Chemical Engineering prepares you for a varied career and gives you broad options when you face the job market. For example, you could work as a researcher, a research team leader, a process or product engineer, an environmental advisor, policy assistant or lecturer. Many managers working in the chemicals industry have a background in chemical engineering. In trade and industry you can start work in a job in which your organizational, coordinating and supervisory qualities are required. Governments, too, employ numerous chemical engineers. For example in environmental services and water boards, and in healthcare. You will even find our graduates in design consultancies and patent offices.
This program is legally recognized and accredited by the Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO).
The Master's program Chemical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology is rated as ‘top program’ in the Masters University Study Guide 2016, which means it is among the best in the Netherlands.
The Master's program in Chemical Engineering offers two specializations you can choose from: Chemical and Process Technology (CPT) and Molecular Systems and Materials Chemistry (MSMC).
You have been admitted to the Master's program and one specialization in particular. In consultation with a professional coach, which can be a (associate) professor of one of the research groups within this specialization, you will choose a specialization elective program as well as a free elective program, with subjects that link up with your own specific knowledge and interests.
The specialization elective program is linked up with the research field you will work on during your graduation project. For this reason, up to three courses from the specialization program need te be approved by the graduation supervisor. For the composition of the free elective program there are no restrictions other than that there should be no overlap with the study components within the Master’s program. Besides a sufficient number of elective courses within the chosen specialization, you can choose courses from the other specialization, from other departments or even from other universities to add to this set of electives.
The industrial internship of 3 months (20 ECTS) will offer you the opportunity to see how Chemical Engineering works in everyday practice. You will also experience a real-life working environment with different people, different backgrounds, different facilities and sometimes a different organization.
The industrial internship can take place at a research institute or company in or even out of the Netherlands.
During your graduation project, which lasts eight months, you will further develop the expertise and skills you have developed during the Master's program. You will demonstrate your ability to carry out a research project independently. This project will be carried out in one of the research laboratories at the Department of Chemical Engineering and Chemistry. The topic of the graduation project will lie within the field of research of the section concerned under supervision of the responsible professor.

There are a number of general requirements for admission to this Master's degree program:
Various scholarships are open to students wishing to follow a Master's program at the TU/e. A requirement of most scholarships is that you have been admitted to a Master's program before you may apply to the scholarship. It is therefore important that you take good note of the scholarships deadlines and apply well in advance to the TU/e Master's program of your choice in time to meet the scholarship deadline. Students from EU countries may also optionally get a grant.
StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
