Key facts

The Master of Science in Chemical Engineering offered at Ghent University offers students a comprehensive training to master the fundamental chemical engineering principles. A chemical engineer has to ensure the design, construction, improvement and maintenance of installations and equipment in the chemical industry. As a graduate in chemical engineering you will be skilled to innovate, to manage an entire installation as well as to acquire a detailed insight in the performance of its individual parts and their interaction. This requires a combination of abstract reasoning but also of common sense, aiming at a practical implementation. Of course, you will also be trained to be involved in and lead research and development.
