Master of Chemical Engineering Technology
This master's program provides in-depth, interdisciplinary training in chemical engineering as practised in various contexts and sectors. The program'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.
The Master of Chemical Engineering Technology covers a wide variety of disciplines. You will learn to design, execute, test and improve industrial processes in a chemically and technologically responsible way. In addition, you will learn to research, develop and apply new materials such as polymers, composites, metals and ceramics. The curriculum includes courses in the fields of socio-economics (company management, economics) as well as 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.
All applications from students who have obtained a degree outside the Flemish Community are evaluated by both KU Leuven Admissions Office and the relevant master's Program director. Final admission decisions will made be at the discretion of the Faculty.
- Academic background: The candidate needs to have a honours bachelor's degree (B.Sc., B.Tech., B.Eng., etc.) or a master's degree in a related/cognate subject area, a solid background in science and mathematics and a clear affinity with the major.
