Chemical and biochemical engineering are at the core of the conversion of any kind of raw materials into substances and products required by modern society.
Chemical engineers and biochemical engineers head the research into and development of methods for large-scale production of drugs, inexpensive production of basic chemicals and fuels, and the economic production of advanced materials used in a wide range of areas – including communication, IT, health, and transport.
Research into and development of methods for preventing and remedying environmental problems in relation to chemicals in the production, as well as research into and development of methods for sustainable chemical and biochemical energy conversion are also key fields of activity.
Study programme focus
On the MSc programme in Chemical and Biochemical Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) , you will learn to solve technological problems using chemistry, mathematics, physics, and thermodynamics. You can choose to concentrate on the study of chemical engineering or bioprocess technology while gaining strong competencies in related or entirely different areas by choosing from among the range of electives.
You will write your MSc thesis at one of DTU's research centres–probably at DTU Chemical Engineering. The MSc thesis is often written in collaboration with a large Danish company, preparing you for future research and development work at universities or in industry.
The Chemical and Biochemical Engineering programme and its fields of specialization range from chemical process technology through chemical and biochemical product design to the process-oriented aspects of biotechnology and biochemistry. You may concentrate your studies in one of three focus areas:
- Chemical and Biochemical Process Technology
- Chemical and Biochemical Product Engineering
- Energy and Environmental Engineering
After graduation, you will have the qualifications to engage in research and development work within both academia and industry. Graduates typically find employment with:
- companies involved in chemical, biotechnological, or pharmaceutical development and production
- consulting, engineering, and manufacturing companies engaged in technical chemical and biochemical activities
- companies in the oil and gas sector
- environmental companies
- the health sector
- the public sector
You can improve your career opportunities and aim for specific jobs or sectors by exploiting the wide range of options offered by the programme. Targeting your choice of electives allows qualification for jobs requiring expertise in an additional area, such as finance, management, and organization.
