Designing and making molecules with high specificity is a key competence in chemistry. Engineers with a solid molecular background play a prominent role in developing and improving chemical systems ranging from novel catalysts to biomedical materials. 

These engineers work at the frontiers of science, learning the rules that govern chemical self-assembly and applying them to new areas like organic solar cells and responsive materials.  

As a materials scientist you will work on developing novel or existing materials and processes. This includes the synthesis and characterization of polymeric materials as well as processing into a final product or device. 

Within the Molecular Systems and Materials Chemistry programme from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) , you can choose to focus on polymer chemistry, polymer technology, or materials and coatings technology. 


The MSc program in Chemical Engineering prepares you for a varied career and gives you broad options when you face the job market. For example, you could work as a researcher, a research team leader, a process or product engineer, an environmental advisor, policy assistant  or lecturer. 

Many managers working in the chemicals industry have a background in chemical engineering. In trade and industry you can start work in a job in which your organizational, coordinating and supervisory qualities are required. Governments, too, employ numerous chemical engineers. 

For example in environmental services and water boards, and in healthcare. You will even find our graduates in design consultancies and patent offices.
