Chemical and Materials Engineering from University of Liège trains specialists in the physical and chemical transformations of materials.


Chemical and Materials Engineering from University of Liège is a 120-credit programme. The education offered at the University of Liège takes into account the specificity and diversity of the tasks and fields of activity of a chemical and a materials science engineer. It begins with the second part of the Bachelor's programme and meets the recommendations of the EFCE (European Federation of Chemical Engineering) in terms of learning outcomes, programme content and teaching methods. This similarity facilitates Erasmus study abroad programmes and dual degrees as well as the integration of visiting students (both IN and OUT).

Learning outcomes

More particularly, Engineers in Chemistry and Materials Science are able to:

  • develop an experimental approach when analysing the systems undergoing physio-chemical transformations;
  • understand and apply the principles of chemical engineering and the laws of physical or chemical conservation and transformation of materials and energy;
  • understand the relationships among the microscopic properties of materials and the usage properties of products and materials, in order to characterise and model them;
  • understand and operate, at various scales, mechanisms for mastering the microscopic properties of materials and thereby the usage properties of products;
  • design, dimension and optimise the processes of synthesis and formation of these products, while also meeting the safety and nuisance prevention standards and societal challenges;
  • develop models that make it possible to simulate and optimise chemical industry equipment and integrated production systems;
  • understand and design systems for overseeing and controlling those processes;
  • plan, manage and supervise the operation of a chemical production facility;
  • evaluate the economic, energy and environmental performance of different chemical processes and products, based on tools such as life cycle analysis.
