The Master of Chemical Engineering Technology at KU Leuven provides in-depth, interdisciplinary training in chemical engineering as practised in various contexts and sectors. The programme’s main focus is learning to design, execute, test and improve industrial processes in a chemically and technologically responsible way. 


The Master of Chemical Engineering Technology at KU 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.
