The Chemical and Sustainable Processes Engineering programme at Politecnico di Torino has as its main objective the training of engineers who are able to produce and manage technologic innovation in the process industry (especially in the chemical, pharmaceutical, environmental, biotechnology, food and new material sectors) through the development of sustainable physico-chemical processes.


The curriculum will provide the necessary knowledge supplements of technical-scientific and mathematical nature on numerical methods, computational fluid dynamics, advanced transport phenomena, multiphase chemical reactors, dispersed systems and molecular modelling.

The transfer of energy, and matter and momentum in complex inter-phase systems will be studied in its foundations and applied to the design of separation equipment and multiphase chemical reactors. 

Particular attention will be devoted to the study of the behaviour of finely dispersed systems such as emulsions and suspensions, the physics of turbulence and its applications in computational fluid dynamics to solve complex problems in the processing industry.

Career opportunities

MSc graduates of the Chemical and Sustainable Processes Engineering programme at Politecnico di Torino  will find employment opportunities in managing positions in the chemical, petrochemical, food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics, production and processing of materials sectors; and also in industrial laboratories; or in technical departments of public administration.The following career opportunities tend to be grouped into the mentioned domains:
  • in engineering companies engaged in design, supervision and construction of industrial production plants;
  • in public and private research centres as employee and/or research and development coordinator;
  • in companies involved in the industrial processing of matter (so called chemical industry, petroleum and petrochemical, metallurgical, pharmaceutical, food, etc.) for the supervision of production plants. In the same companies the engineer may also be called to manage their environmental and security issues;
  • in service companies and public administration as a technical coordinator
  • in the consulting and expert advice activities to companies and groups that do not internally have the specific skills.
  • in companies that produce, process and develop materials applicable in various industrial fields such as the chemical, mechanical, electrical, electronics, telecommunications, energy, construction, transport, biomedical and preservation of cultural heritage.

TOEFL admission requirements TOEFL® IBT The TOEFL iBT® is given online through the internet at designated testing site. The test measures your English-language abilities in an academic setting. The score refers to the total score of 4 subjects (writing, listening, speaking, and reading), each subject has a range of 0 - 30.
IELTS admission requirements IELTS The International English Language Test System (IELTS) tests your English-language proficiency on a scale of 1 – 9. The score refers to the combined average score of 4 subjects (writing, listening, speaking, and reading).
PTE Academic admission requirements PTE Academic PTE Academic (Pearson Test of English Academic) is a language test that enables students to demonstrate their writing, listening, speaking, and reading skills when applying to study in English. The score refers to a total score which ranges between 10 and 90.

Other requirements

General requirements

  • hold a Bachelor degree awarded by an accredited foreign university obtained after at least 15 years of previous education(primary and secondary plus university).In case you are enrolled in a “single cycle” Laurea magistrale course (5 or 6 years degree program) and you have not yet graduated, you must have completed at least 15 years of previous education (minimum 3 years at University level) having obtained at least 180 ECTS credits or equivalent.
  • meet curricular and quality requirements of the MS program you want to apply for. 

Tuition Fee

The new model adopted by Politecnico consists in:

  • For non-EU students living outside Italy and not belonging to a LDC, the amount of the tuition fee is calculated considering their country of origin and whether they apply or not for tuition fee reduction according to their income/properties and family members (ISEE Parificato).
  • For EU students living outside Italy, the amount of the tuition fee depends on whether they submit or not the tuition fee reduction application according to their income/properties and family members (ISEE Parificato).


Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
