Scaling up from a laboratory reaction to an industrial process is the main challenge for chemical engineers.
This is a complicated optimization problem at many levels: environmental impact, energy consumption and cost must be minimized and the quality and process safety maximized.
The Master of Science in Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology from Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne prepares the students for a career in industry requiring solid knowledge of the methods in chemical processes, development, biotechnology and safety processes.
