Overview

The course is given in cooperation with: Université Libre de Bruxelles: Brussels Faculty of Engineering (in short Bruface)

This Master offers

* a unique interdisciplinary programme which prepares you for employment in a professional field related to chemical engineering, materials science or environmental technology. * a high level scientific education that prepares you to a wide range of job profiles. the possibility to work in close contact with professors who are internationally recognized in their own disciplines and favor interactive learning.

The Master of Chemical and Materials Engineering educates students to become innovative engineers who will contribute to their profession and to society.

Engineers in chemistry and materials sciences play a unique role in sustainable development, where they must manage resources, energy and the environment in order to develop and produce novel materials and chemical commodities. Our graduates are prepared to face the demands of the modern technological employment field and for an international career with English as their professional language.

The Master in Chemical and Material Engineering (120 ECTS) offers a solid core of courses in both of these engineering fields. The integrated and the multidisciplinary approach provides students up-to-date knowledge enabling them to propose innovative engineering solutions in numerous modern technological sectors. Students have the possibility to specialize in Process technology or Material Science.

Programme structure

Profile: Process Technology

The Process Technology orientation trains students to become engineers who are employable and innovative both in production units (operation and optimization of production facilities) and in engineering groups (develop new production units that meet desired performance specifications). An emphasis is placed on the biotechnology and food industries. Students are also trained to identify, solve and avoid environmental problems including waste management, water, air and soil pollution.

Profile: Materials

The Materials orientation prepares students for the materials and materials technology sectors (metals, polymers, ceramics and composites). Students are trained to become creative engineers capable of designing sustainable multi-functional materials which meet specific applications. Students also have the capacity to contribute to the whole life-cycle of materials from their processing into semi or full end products using environmentally friendly and safe production processes to their recycling.

Career opportunities

The Profile Materials aims at forming engineers that are employable in a wide field of materials and material’s technology. This covers both production and development facilities for different types of materials, such as metals, polymers, ceramics and composite materials.
