Description

Chemical and biochemical engineering are at the core of the conversion of any kind of raw materials into substances and products required by modern society.

Chemical engineers and biochemical engineers head the research into and development of methods for large-scale production of drugs, inexpensive production of basic chemicals and fuels, and the economic production of advanced materials used in a wide range of areas – including communication, IT, health, and transport.

Research into and development of methods for preventing and remedying environmental problems in relation to chemicals in the production, as well as research into and development of methods for sustainable chemical and biochemical energy conversion are also key fields of activity.

Study programme focus

The MSc programme in Chemical and Biochemical Engineering combines the study of chemical and biochemical industrial technology and is targeted at students interested in the commercial and sustainable chemical or biochemical conversion of raw materials into products, as well as research into and development of methods, equipment, and processes.

On the programme, you will learn to solve technological problems using chemistry, mathematics, physics, and thermodynamics. You can choose to concentrate on the study of chemical engineering or bioprocess technology while gaining strong competencies in related or entirely different areas by choosing from among the range of electives.

You will write your MSc thesis at one of DTU’s research centres–probably at DTU Chemical Engineering. The MSc thesis is often written in collaboration with a large Danish company, preparing you for future research and development work at universities or in industry.

Focus areas

The Chemical and Biochemical Engineering programme and its fields of specialization range from chemical process technology through chemical and biochemical product design to the process-oriented aspects of biotechnology and biochemistry. You may concentrate your studies in one of three focus areas:

Chemical and Biochemical Process Technology

Focus is on the design of processes and apparatus based on the mathematical description of process systems and their components. Fundamental knowledge of natural sciences, biotechnology, and chemical engineering is used to ensure that chemical and biochemical aspects of the production are taken into account. The programme also provides the opportunity for further specialization in fields such as reaction engineering, process control, and bioprocess technology.

Chemical and Biochemical Product Engineering

The main focus is the development and production of advanced biological and chemical materials and products. To achieve desired product properties is of the essence, and product properties are often influenced by both synthesis methods and process design. Hence, interaction between product properties, production methods, and process equipment is at the core of good product engineering. The area contains some process technological elements, but is closely linked to physics, chemistry, biochemistry, and microbiology.

Energy and Environmental Engineering

The central feature of this area is use of technical methods to control energy consumption and environmental impact of production facilities. The area is therefore highly process-oriented, but preference is given to energy and environmental aspects. Although chemical and biochemical engineering processes form the actual basis, interdisciplinary design, development, and management also constitute key elements. These are provided by electives.

The focus areas should only be considered guidelines, providing a high degree of flexibility in relation to your choice of courses in your individual study plan. Your choice of courses may cut across the various focus areas. Combined with the extensive range of electives offered at DTU, you have ample opportunity to shape your own education within the programme with an aim towards your future career.
