Overview

Students on the programme will gain advanced knowledge and skills in chemical engineering and obtain modern tools to analyse various processes. These processes can be anything from the production of biofuels and energy storage to the purification of drinking water and exhaust gases. 

Students will acquire competence through the whole chain, from raw materials to product. The analyses of the processes often include aspects of chemicals, heat, electricity and environment.

Year one and the first term of the second year consist of conditionally elective and recommended courses, allowing students to design their education to meet personal and professional goals. 

The remainder of year two consists of a compulsory project course in process design for industry and society. During the last term of the Chemical Engineering for Energy and the Environment programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology , a degree project is carried out either in industry, at a KTH department, or at another university or research institute around the world.

Career

The job market for engineers graduating from the programme is broad and international. Advanced skills in chemical engineering combined with an environmental focus provide an excellent basis for various careers in industry, government agencies and academia.

Chemical engineers with a specialisation in energy and the environment are very attractive for many different branches of industry, such as suppliers of energy and chemicals, the pulp and paper industry, the vehicle industry and in companies specialising in environmental issues such as the recycling of materials.

Programme graduates can be found in traditional Swedish industry, in small start-up companies, consultant companies, governmental institutions, research institutes and universities. 

Examples of companies that employ chemical engineers from KTH are energy-related companies such as Fortum, Stockholm Exergi and Vattenfall, companies in the pulp and paper industry, e.g. Holmen and Stora Enso and research institutes like RISE and IVL, chemical production companies like Akzo Nobel and Nynäs and car and truck manufacturing companies like Scania (buses and trucks), Volvo AB (buses, trucks and construction machines) and Volvo Cars (cars). 

A lot of graduates also continue their academic career with doctoral level studies. The need for engineers with the competence offered by the programme will continue to be great in the future.
