About

In the first year of the Biotechnology and Chemical Engineering programme from Aarhus University, laboratory exercises, practical exercises, and excursions play a key role in many courses in addition to lectures and theoretical exercises. The second year consists mainly of project work, which often involves students working closely with companies.

Overview

The focus of the Biotechnology and Chemical Engineering programme from Aarhus University  is the development and optimisation of processes in the chemical and biotechnological industries and in the environmental sector. 

If you have an engineering background in chemistry and choose to pursue this specialisation at MSc level, you will be able to work with areas as diverse as food, polymer chemistry, and membrane and separation technology. 

If on the other hand your background is in biotechnology, you can pursue this specialisation to gain opportunities to work in areas such as developing enzymes and proteins for use in “green” production, lipid technology, and medical biotechnology. 

Whether your background is in chemistry or biotechnology, you will also be able to specialise in environmental or energy technology, leading to opportunities to work in areas such as waste water treatment, biorefinery, air cleaning, and biogas production.

Putting Research Into Practice

Teaching at Aarhus University is greatly influenced by the research conducted here, as all the lecturers are active researchers. As an engineering student, you have excellent opportunities to work with researchers in the laboratory, or you can complete a project in collaboration with a private company.

Student Life

At Aarhus University you will be part of an extensive engineering environment with more than 3,000 engineering students. So you will have ample opportunity to get involved in both academic and social student associations with your fellow students.

Aarhus University campus is unique in that its buildings are closely grouped together and surrounded by nature. The campus is conveniently situated close to the city centre, and student accommodation is readily available as long as you apply on time. There are a range of activities, ranging from running to a regatta on the lake, as well as guest lectures, film screenings, and university events taking place throughout the year. To ensure student well-being, counselling services are available to offer students support and guidance during their time at Aarhus.

Careers

As a graduate engineer in chemistry and biotechnology, you will be developing the processes of the future – processes that will ensure that chemical, biotechnological, and environmental knowledge finds sustainable applications that can benefit society as a whole.

The MSc programme is also monitored by representatives of chemical companies such as DuPont, Arla, Aarhus Karlshamn, and Cheminova, all of which are interested in employing newly qualified graduate engineers in chemistry and biotechnology.
