The Master of Chemical Engineering Technology (Leuven) covers a wide variety of disciplines. Upon graduation, you will be equipped with the skills to lead and coordinate industrial production units as well as research, analysis and screening laboratories in technical-commercial, administrative and educational environments.
In addition to fundamental chemical-scientific course units, the curriculum includes courses in the fields of socio-economics (company management, economics) and chemical technology (engineering, separation techniques, chemical process technology, industrial process technology, surface chemistry, environmental technology, etc.).
A flexible cross-campus elective package (multicampus module) and a master's thesis conducted in either a research-specific or industrial context enable you to focus your studies according to your specific interests and career goals.
In the Sustainable Process and Materials Engineering option emphasis is placed on reliable technology that meets today's needs without jeopardising the welfare of future generations. This implies that materials and energy must be used efficiently, taking into account their impact on the environment. Thus, on the one hand this option focuses on the sustainable design, development and production of products and systems, and on the other hand, it is aimed at development, properties, characterisation, production and processing of (new) materials.
The broad and fascinating field of the chemical industry includes employment opportunities in petrochemical, synthetic, and pharmaceutical areas. Upon completion of this master’s programme, you will be fully trained and highly skilled, ready to enter the professional workplace.
Besides employment by the government, private and non-profit organisations and institutions you may also set up an applied research project and design activities on a self-employed basis.
