    Programme Description

    What do a Goretex jacket, biodiesel and a 10-Euro bill have in common? Correct, chemical and process engineering have something to say about all three. And this is true for almost all areas of daily life, from food to plastics, from hygiene articles to computer chips. In short: In short, no modern products without chemical and process engineering.

    Put simply, chemical and process engineering is the science that deals with the transformation of materials by means of mechanical, thermal or chemical processes. And as it can be seen from the definition, a lot of other sciences play a role in this: Chemistry, mathematics, and mechanical engineering, just to name a few. Thus, interdisciplinarity is written in capital letters. And the beautiful thing about it: Students get to try all of this out practically at an early stage of their studies since a lot of the courses take their students right to the companies. This is made possible due to the traditionally good co-operation with industry. By the way, the friendly atmosphere in the well-equipped institutes is also a tradition!

    Chemical and process engineers are all-rounders. Since almost all industrial branches need chemical and process engineering, there is a wide range of professional possibilities.

    The know-how and competence of chemical and process engineers are sought after wherever industrial plants are erected and operated. The spectrum ranges from the food, tobacco and alcohol industry, paper industry, plastics industry, petrochemistry and the production of chemicals to biotechnology, among others. In addition, chemical and process engineering includes a component that is very strongly oriented towards the environment. Thus, chemical and process engineers are often employed by companies and authorities as experts for environmental issues.
