The Chemical Engineering programme from LUT University covers many scientific and technological areas essential for human well-being, a clean environment and the sustainable use of natural resources.
|Start Date:||September 2020|
|Tuition Fee:||€10,000 per year|
The Chemical Engineering programme from LUT University gives you the basic skills necessary in modern chemical and process industry.
Chemical engineering skills are essential in developing processing technology that is not detrimental to the environment. This might include tasks such as developing novel processes that are energy and raw material efficient, or processes to recirculate wastes to valuable products.
Chemical engineering is an engineering discipline that combines chemistry, physics, mathematics, biology, and economics to transfer raw materials into chemical products. These products include, for instance, fuels, commodities, specialty chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and foodstuffs.
You will acquire the knowledge and skills to work in different fields of the process industry, for chemical companies, and for equipment manufacturers, most typically in research, development, design and operation.
Other prospective positions include overseeing the construction of new plants, assessing safety and environmental issues, supervising plant operations, etc.
You may find employment in the chemical, biomass refining, food processing or metallurgical industries. Graduates of this programme have found jobs in companies such as Outotec, UPM, Stora Enso, Norilsk Nickel, Orion Pharma, Dow, and Kemira.Additionally, the skills of chemical engineers are increasingly in demand outside the traditional process industry, for example in the energy sector.
You will also be given a firm basis to continue your studies in doctoral programmes.
