About this program

Master's Degree in Chemical Engineering

Chemical engineering is directly concerned with obtaining various products (fuels, solvents, medicines, paints, plastics, detergents, etc.) and services (water and energy supply, waste management and valorisation, etc.) that ensure our quality of life and without which modern life as we know it would be impossible. In addition, society demands that the most innovative technologies be used in these processes to ensure that they are efficient, sustainable, economically viable, safe and environmentally friendly.

The global demand for these products and services and, as a result, for experts in this sector grows year on year. The master’s degree in Chemical Engineering: Smart Chemical Factories aims to produce engineers with the high-level competencies that will allow them to deal with current challenges in chemical engineering (sustainability, circular economy, climate change, etc.) and to take advantage of the opportunities that Industry 4.0 technology can afford.

The master’s degree provides advanced training for chemical engineers who will easily adapt to positions of responsibility in companies, research centres, universities and public administrations.

Admission requirements

General requirements

  • An official Spanish university qualification or an official university qualification issued by a university in the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) that qualifies the holder for admission to a master's degree.
  • A qualification issued by a university in a country that is not in the EHEA. If the qualification has not been homologated, the UPC will verify that the course of study corresponds to a level of education equivalent to an official Spanish university degree and that the qualification obtained would provide admission to a master’s degree in the country in which it was awarded. This access route in no way implies the homologation of the qualification or its recognition for any purpose other than admission to the master's degree. The master's degree will, however, be fully and legally valid.

Specific requirements

Candidates must be in possession of a bachelor’s degree in Chemistry (with bridging courses), Chemical Engineering, Biotechnology (with bridging courses) or Environmental Sciences (with bridging courses).

English level B2 and Spanish level B2 (foreign students) are required. Proof must be submitted on enrolment.
