The Master of Science in Chemical and Sustainable Processes Engineering program 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 or with the reduction or elimination of the use and generation of hazardous substances, by preventing the originating chemical hazards and environmental pollution.
The foundations of the transfer of energy, matter and momentum in complex multiphase systems will be studied and applied to the design of separation equipment and multiphase chemical reactors. Particular attention will be devoted to studying 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 of industrial processing.
The program also provides instruction in food industry processes, biotechnological products and processes, and special separation processes that apply in this area; or, to develop their design skills, students can learn criteria and engineering methodologies applicable to the development of sustainable chemical and physical processes and the “green chemistry”. The practical exercises regard the conception and development of innovative chemical-physical processes; working in groups, students can apply the methodologies they have acquired in design, development and process analysis to solve complex problems and carry out a complete plant design, which will then be discussed.
The MSc degree programme in Chemical and Sustainable Process Engineering forms engineers who can produce and manage innovation in industrial processing technology (particularly in the chemical, pharmaceutical, environmental, biotechnological, food, and new materials sectors); this entails the development of sustainable chemical and physical processes, and reduction or elimination of the use and generation of dangerous substances to prevent chemical contamination and environmental pollution.

You need the following IELTS score:
Minimum required score:
The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.Schedule IELTS
