They say a chemical engineer does for profit what a chemist does for fun. Chemical Engineers sit in a lab and do scientific experiments just like chemists do; but they also bridge the gap between research and the manufacturing of chemical products and equipment. So they are both chemists as well as engineers.

From optimising DNA sequencing to discovering how algae can be used as an alternative for petroleum, you could say chemical engineers have solutions to any problem. Chemical Engineering is a broad field of study that encompasses Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics and Engineering Science; and graduates learn to develop new drugs, and fertilizers, increase energy efficiency or manage chemical plants.

Students who graduate with Bachelor or Master degrees in Chemical Engineering enter into the following careers:

• Chemical engineer
• Energy engineer
• Product development scientist
• Materials scientist
• Nuclear engineer

M.Sc. Nanoengineering for Green Chemistry and Advanced Materials

The Nanoengineering for Green Chemistry and Advanced Materials programme offered by ITMO University focuses on the modern aspects of nanotechnology for green chemistry and sustainability. Special emphasis is made on engineering of functional nanoarchitectures for catalysis as well as biomedical applications and photonics.

M.Sc. Chemical Engineering

In the Master's degree program Chemical Engineering from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), you learn to come up with solutions for problems related to process and product technology. Education and research are closely integrated within this Master's program, which helps you stay abreast of the latest developments within the discipline. 

MSc/Diploma Advanced Chemical Engineering

Chemical engineering now extends beyond its traditional roots in oil and gas processing. In this course you will learn about the aspects of chemical engineering that deal with the design and development of formulated products such as food and pharmaceuticals. The Advanced Chemical Engineering  programme is offered at University of Birmingham.
