The Master of Science in Chemical Engineering consists of 2 phases: a first one of 3 years, resulting in the academic degree of bachelor of science and a subsequent one of 2 years to obtain the master’s degree in chemical engineering.
As a graduate you will typically be employed in the chemical process industry. In addition, other companies where chemical transformations are implemented in the manufacturing process, such as the polymer, textile, food, pharmaceutical and environmental sanitation industry, offer various career opportunities. A master in chemical engineering typically supervises a team responsible for (chemical) production and focuses on the improvement and innovation of processes and products. Other opportunities appear in engineering companies where a you will be responsible for the design, construction and start-up of new production units. Furthermore, equipment design and construction companies employ many chemical engineers. Last but not least, universities and research institutes also recruit chemical engineers. In short, a master in chemical engineering has a bright future in the modern, diverse and international chemical industry which is strongly anchored in (the extended neighbourhood of) our region.
