This master's programme 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. In addition to fundamental (bio)chemical coursework, the curriculum includes coursework in socio-economics, chemical process technology, surface chemistry, environmental technology etc.
What is the programme all about?
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.
Combine your master with a start-up or team project learning experience
You can combine your master's programme with the Postgraduate Tech Innovations in Ventures & Teams. During this programme, you actually develop and implement an idea, either on your own or as part of a team. You are encouraged to innovate, transfer knowledge and develop technical and professional skills. With support from team coaches and industry professionals, this postgraduate offers you a unique insight into the world of entrepreneurship.
