Introduction to the programme

  • This programme is taught in English

You will learn to design, plan and optimise chemical and biotechnical processing plants and products – based on technical, resource and environmental considerations. You will be qualified to run laboratory work as well as to develop and validate analytical measuring methods.

With a master of science in engineering degree in Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology you will be qualified for consultancy assignments as well as research and development tasks within the core competencies which you have acquired through your academic profile.

Project based and research based study environment

You become part of a project based and problem based study environment where you work in project groups. You and your fellow students are responsible for planning and carrying out the project – and for meeting the deadlines. Usually we receive the project outlines from companies and we emphasise that the problems you solve are ‘real-world’ problems.

The final semester is devoted to the master thesis, which will typically be carried out at or in cooperation with an industrial company. Learn more from the students themselves. 

Versatile career paths

 With a master of science in engineering degree in Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology you will have a range of job opportunities – in Denmark and abroad. The degree qualifies you for work in production, development and environmental control in, for example, the medical and food industry. 

It is also possible to continue on a three-year research programme which will lead to a PhD degree.

Another option is to study an industrial research programme which is carried out in close cooperation with a company where you are employed.

Graduates who have completed this master programme are entitled to use the title of Master of Science (MSc) in Engineering (Chemistry).
