What makes a graduate with an engineering degree in Chemistry and Biotechnology especially attractive to the labour market? Below is an overview of the competencies you will have once graduated: general engineering competencies as well as the special competencies you will acquire in Chemistry and Biotechology.

General engineering competencies

With an engineering degree from the University of Southern Denmark you will have a strong academic and professional profile based on highly competent teachers and fellow students who are skilled, curious and committed to their studies. Moreover, you will be part of a research and development environment of high international standard. That is how we ensure that you get the most recent knowledge and ability to be right up there in the lead should you choose to study or work abroad.

Students acquire:

  • ability to solve specific problems alone or in teams
  • ability to manage a project from beginning to end
  • ability to work independently as well as in teams
  • ability to define, formulate and analyse a problem.

Students are:

• used to working with companies and will have a thorough understanding of business.

Specific competencies

With a degree in Chemistry and Biotechnology you will have the following competencies:

  • knowledge of legislation, environmental and quality standards and any social consequences qualifying you to give advice in cases related to chemical engineering initiatives and considerations
  • ability to manage laboratory work and develop and validate analytical measurement methods
  • ability to head development projects, e.g. in alternative energy, because you can design, modify and optimise processing plants and products taking into considerations technological implications and the environment as well as the resources available.

A bachelor of science in engineering degree in Chemistry and Biotechnology qualifies you to continue your studies for a master of science in engineering degree.
