The purpose of the MSc degree is to master the scientific method, with emphasis on critical evaluation of all information and data. There are two routes available for achieving a Masters degree.

A student may register for a full research Masters or take a Coursework Masters degree in one of the following:

  • Bioprocess engineering
  • Catalytic process engineering
  • Hydrometallurgical engineering


The purpose of the PhD degree is to develop new insights in the field of Chemical Engineering.

Doctoral degrees are always full-time research programmes, and can be taken in any of the departmental research interest areas.

These are are:

  • Bioprocess engineering
  • Catalysis
  • Minerals processing
  • Hydrometallurgy
  • Environmental engineering
  • Crystallization and precipitation
  • Chemical engineering education
