By taking the Master of Science in Chemical Engineering you will learn how to implement a chemical reaction at a large scale. Circularity, sustainability, safety and the environment, e.g., the optimal usage of the energy required in a chemical production process, are key aspects. Graduates find jobs in the chemical industry which is very well represented in Belgium, as well as in scientific research and public services.

Students who wish to enrol for the Master of Science in Chemical Engineering can enter the programme without any prerequisites if they hold the following diploma: an academic diploma of Bachelor (or Master) of Science in Engineering (university level, minimum three years), with the main subject in Chemical Engineering and/or Materials Science or an equivalent to this. Admission can only be granted after an individual application procedure. The Study Programme Committee will make the final decision whether to accept the application or not. The Study Programme Committee can decide that students need to follow a preparatory course or an individual master’s programme, for instance for students who hold another diploma of Bachelor or Master.
