Description

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.

Chemical engineer

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.

Graduation options

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:

  • Molecular Systems and Materials Chemistry
Designing and making molecules with high specificity is a key competence in chemistry. Engineers with a solid molecular background play a prominent role in developing and improving chemical systems ranging from novel catalysts to biomedical materials. They operate at the frontiers of science, learning the rules that govern chemical self-assembly, and bring self-assembly applications to new areas like organic solar cells and responsive materials. In the Molecular Systems and Materials Chemistry track, you can learn to use the tools of catalysis, inorganic, organic and physical chemistry to contribute to a healthier and more sustainable society.
  • Chemical and Process Technology
For the design and optimization of complex production facilities of chemical products it is essential to have an in-depth understanding of process engineering. In the Chemical and Process Technology master’s degree track you learn to design chemical processes and to integrate knowledge of chemistry, transport phenomena, chemical reactor design, separation technology, plant design, process development and process control. Several subjects are studied, including novel (multiphase) reactors, (reactive) separation processes and the development and design of specific processes and products for industry. As a process engineer you will be trained to design and optimize processes in such a way that they are efficient, environmentally friendly and sustainable.
Graduated and then what?

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.

Course Content

Structure

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).

Elective courses

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.

Industrial internship

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.

Graduation project

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.

English Language Requirements

Requirements

There are a number of general requirements for admission to this Master's degree program:

  • A relevant Bachelor's degree (or equivalent), based on a program of sufficient academic level and quality to be able to complete this Master's program.
  • Acumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of at least 75% of the scale maximum. Students hoping to participate in selection for the Amandus H. Lundqvist Scholarship Program require a CGPA of 80% minimum.
  • You must be able to demonstrate sufficient command of the English language, in which the program is taught.
  • To prove sufficient command of the English language you should submit an Academic IELTS or TOEFL test.

Work Experience

No work experience is required.
