About

Development and optimisation of processes in the chemical and biotechnological industries and in the environmental sector play a key role in modern society. In the Biotechnology and Chemical Engineering programme at Aarhus University you focus on the future of the industry which is characterised by production that is environmentally correct and energy-efficient. 

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

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, 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. 

Job opportunities 

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 to benefit society as a whole.

The Aarhus University educates graduate engineers for the regional, national and international job markets. Graduates work in a wide range of fields and institutions.

The Biotechnology and Chemical Engineering degree programme from Aarhus University is monitored by a group consisting of members from chemical companies such as Aarhus Karlshamn, Cheminova, Dupont and Arla, all of which are interested in employing newly qualified graduate engineers in chemistry and biotechnology.
