About Chemical Engineering (BSc), BSc - at University of Twente

Developing and improving new materials, products and processes in a sustainable way: that is what the Bachelor's programme in Chemical Engineering at the University of Twente is all about.

Our Chemical Engineering programme is a challenging, high-level course that has been acclaimed as Top Dutch programme in its field four times running. If you are ambitious and enjoy tackling problems that require engineering as well as chemistry, then this may be the programme for you.

What is Chemical Engineering?

Chemistry is all around us. As a chemical engineer, you will be equipped to change and improve your surroundings. In our Chemical Engineering programme, you will model and design large and small production processes, or analyse and characterize the properties of new high-tech materials. You may even develop new materials. You might work on a dirt-resistant, super-sterile material, or a large-scale plant that produces many tons of materials every hour. Or even a nanoreactor that feeds just a few micrograms per day into the human body.

In our Chemical Engineering programme, we place a strong emphasis on the technological application of chemistry. This means it is important that you are not only keen on natural sciences, but also technically skilled and well-versed in physics and mathematics as well as chemistry.

As a chemical engineer, you will confidently tackle complex and socially relevant issues. The applied nature of our programme ensures a lot of variety. You will discover that social issues, profitability, sustainability and good planning and communication are often just as important as the technological solution.

The Bachelor's programme Chemical Engineering in Twente is very broad. You will learn all about the different areas within the field of chemistry, like thermodynamics, materials science and process technology. You will become familiar with the mathematics needed to solve chemical problems ? for example, when you have to perform calculations for a large chemical process. During the programme, we also focus on team work and presentation techniques. In the third year, you will have the opportunity to add an entirely different discipline to your toolbox, such as Business Administration or Aeronautical Engineering and Management. Most of our graduates move on to do a Master's programme in Chemical Engineering, specializing in materials science or process technology.
