The degree of Master of Science in Chemical Engineering (MSc in CE) is awarded for successfully completing the requirements of a program of study, which includes taught courses as well as thesis. The thesis is an independent investigation of specialized areas within the general field of chemical engineering and associated disciplines. The MSc in CE gives candidates the opportunity to deepen their knowledge in the broad field of CE and contribute to the process of discovery and knowledge creation through the conduct of original research.

Candidates for this degree are taught and supervised by experienced faculty and are expected to demonstrate initiative in their approach and innovation in their work. In addition to successfully completing the taught course component of the program, candidates prepare and present a thesis on their chosen area. Research may be undertaken in several topics corresponding to the areas of focus identified by the University.


A student graduating with the MSc in Chemical Engineering will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate advanced knowledge of sciences (mathematics, physics, chemistry) and engineering.
  2. Understand and carry out safe and economic design of chemical engineering processes and systems fulfilling environmental and societal constraints.
  3. Design and conduct theoretical and/or experimental work, as well as analyze and interpret data.
  4. Identify, formulate, analyze and solve chemical engineering problems by applying knowledge of chemical engineering concepts.
  5. Use computational and process simulation tools necessary for chemical engineering practice.
  6. Effective and professional communication in English (both oral and in writing)
  7. Functions autonomously and takes responsibility for managing professional practices, work, processes or systems; Demonstrate an awareness and understanding of contemporary environmental and social issues in the regional and global context.
  8. Inculcate a passion for life-long learning and self-education; Learn from experiences gained in different contexts and apply new knowledge and skills into practice; Demonstrate professional integrity and ethical responsibility.
  9. Take responsibility and act to formulate creative solutions to complex problems
