Chemical Process Engineering and Process Technology

Chemical process engineering and the establishment of process facilities and energy installations have traditionally been held in very high esteem in Germany. The increasingly stringent requirements with regard to energy-efficiency, preservation of resources, and environmental protection are making process engineering tasks ever more demanding.

Alongside project and management skills, the Chemical Process Engineering and Process Technology master's degree programme will broaden your knowledge of core subjects in the fields of process engineering and energy technology and will increase your level of expertise by means of multidisciplinary subjects and electives with a view to equipping you with the expertise you will need in order to find solutions for interdisciplinary assignments in your future professional career.
The Master of Engineering, which follows on from a bachelor's or Diplom programme, is an internationally recognized qualification that will allow you to take on management or senior civil service roles (qualification level 4) or to go on to complete a doctorate at a German or international university.


Degree:Master of Engineering
