Masters Programme Chemical Engineering
Description
Our Masters in Chemical Engineering strives to provide students with cutting-edge training in the discipline, incorporating a clear research focus and an excellent grounding in all of its practical aspects. The training is designed in accordance with the most sought-after professional profiles in the labour market. A key aim of the programme is to allow students to develop coherent, multidisciplinary and innovative approaches to conducting research in the area, ensuring that they employ sound methodology when it comes to applying this research. The course teaches students to become adept problem-solvers, autonomous and independent learners, and innovative thinkers. We thereby ensure that our graduates can integrate successfully into the chemical engineering industry, provide effective Research & Development training to others, and excel in innovation and development projects.

Our Department at the University of Granada has a long-standing tradition in the discipline, simultaneously conducting pioneering research, publishing key research developments, and transferring them to lecture theatres, since 1993. The programme is taught by highly-experienced academics and professionals from the industry.

The Masters which allows students to obtain 72 ECTS credits, consists of 3 core modules: Engineering Processes and Products; Production Management, Optimization, and Sustainability; and a Dissertation.

Employment prospects for our graduates are excellent. Upon completion of their studies, many choose to pursue careers in engineering companies (research, design, optimization, project management, technical support and advice) and chemical engineering companies (management, design, operating and maintaining production plants, research, innovation and product development), and in insurance companies as advisors, auditors and inspectors (quality control, environmental impact, health and safety, project evaluation etc.). Other go on to complete further doctoral studies in the discipline, with a view to pursuing a full-time teaching or research career.
