Description of Paper and Pulp Technology

Advertisement

The Paper and Pulp Technology masters programme lasts four semesters and consolidates the knowledge students acquired in the Chemical and Process Engineering bachelors programme. The programme has an interdisciplinary structure and includes different disciplines that are used in the production, refinement, processing, and recycling of pulp and paper.

Due to the wide range of demands in the paper and pulp industry, graduates of other technical and scientific bachelors programmes (e.g. mechanical engineering, chemistry, biotechnology, and technical physics) are also very interested in the Paper and Pulp Technology masters programme. Graduates of the program are awarded the academic title of Diplom-Ingenieurin or Diplom-Ingenieur which is equivalent to the international "Master of Science" ("MSc").

Working as a chemical and process engineer

Chemical and process engineers are all-rounders. Since almost all industrial branches need chemical and process engineering, there is a wide range of professional possibilities. The know-how and competence of chemical and process engineers are sought after wherever industrial plants are erected and operated. The spectrum ranges from the food, tobacco and alcohol industry, paper industry, plastics industry, petrochemistry and the production of chemicals to biotechnology, among others. Chemical and process engineers can work in a wide range of functions, such as in the areas of research and development, planning and construction, operation and production, customer care and distribution or technical monitoring. In addition, chemical and process engineering includes a component that is very strongly oriented towards the environment. Thus, chemical and process engineers are often employed by companies and authorities as experts for environmental issues.
