International Master’s Degree in Chemical Engineering – Sustainable Technologies and Biotechnologies for Energy and Materials (STEM)


A Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering is key to professional success in several modern and innovative industrial sectors. Smart materials, sustainable processes for energy production, industrial biotechnologies, and advanced pharmaceutical applications are only some of the examples of sectors where the expertise of chemical engineers is sought and highly rewarded. Furthermore, the conventional world-players as the chemical and Oil&Gas field are facing a context of increasing innovation and internationalization.

The international curriculum of the Master’s in Chemical and Process Engineering was built to meet these needs. In the first year, courses mainly address the basic issues of the Master’s studies: advanced thermodynamics and transport phenomena, sustainable process design, equipment design, and process safety engineering. In the second year, both compulsory and elective courses are offered on specialised topics:
    a) Materials and biotechnologies option: advanced knowledge in materials science and engineering, polymeric and composite materials as well as advanced properties of materials.

    b) Industrial Biotechnologies and Pharmaceutical Engineering option: advanced knowledge in biotechnological and pharmaceutical processes, equipment and operations.
