Chemical Engineering

Programma-opties

  • Catalysis and Green Chemistry (specialisatie)
  • Product and Process Technology (specialisatie)
  • Industrial Catalysts (specialisatie)
  • Polymeric Products (specialisatie)
  • HTSM Honours Master (honoursprogramma)

    This Master's degree programme gives access to the additional, highly selective, High Tech Systems and Materials (HTSM) Honours Master.

    The HTSM Honours Master is organized in cooperation with Philips and other major industry partners.

Opbouw programma

The two-year programme offers four chemical engineering specialisations:

  • Bio-based Products
  • Industrial Catalysis
  • Polymeric Products
  • Advanced Process Technology

The first three specialisations focus on product sectors, whereas Advanced Process Technology is the one specialisation which focuses on process technology.

An additional track (Catalysis and Green chemistry) is offered in cooperation with the master program in Chemistry.

The programme is split into a core programme (95 ECTS, compulsory for every student), a sub programme of 15 ECTS, and 10 ECTS choice. In the core programme you will deal with themes such as interfacial engineering, bio-based products, polymer products and advanced product engineering.

2-year programme; credits per year: 60 ECTS; most courses are 5 ECTS.

    The teaching style at the university far exceeds my expectations

    In Groningen I got introduced to a new way of teaching and studying. The teaching style at the university far exceeds my expectations. The Chemical Engineering programme is far more practical and requires more independence, compared to what I'm used to in China. This way we learn things you just can't learn by simply reading study books. Yes, I would certainly recommend studying Chemical Engineering in Groningen to other students in China!

    When you get here for the very first times there's a welcoming ceremony for international students. During my welcoming ceremony we had a student-assistant who took us for a walk around the campus, so we could get familiar with the place where we would study. At this point there are 6 international students in our class. We are all friends now, and not only work together in projects but also hang out together in our spare time.

    The atmosphere at the university and in the city is very welcoming. I never felt excluded for being from another country

    Studying in Groningen was the second time I went abroad to a more developed country with a modern university. I had already left my home country of Brazil once to study English in Canada, and this time, I aimed to improve my career opportunities through the Science Without Borders exchange programme.

    Chemical Engineering at the University of Groningen has excellent reviews, and is headed up by one of the best lecturers in the Netherlands, Prof. Dr. Francesco Picchioni. I ended up working on research alongside him, which proved to be an incredible opportunity. I learnt a lot, and it is a great addition to my resume and experience.

    This programme can be a challenge, but the combination of theory and practice makes it very interesting. To take the formulae that are in the book and apply them to a certain process to create a product is very rewarding. At home, studying is quite mechanical and everything is served to the students on a platter. In Groningen, students are given a lot more autonomy. Doing things by myself really taught me to be creative, innovative and independent – preparing me for working life. I've spent 16 months in Groningen and every day was worth it: I took special courses, worked on a renowned research project and even spent 6 months doing an internship at a big Dutch company.

    I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of support I received from the Programme Coordinator and the International Service Desk before I made the move. Once I arrived, I realised that this helpfulness comes natural to the Dutch. The atmosphere at the university and in the city is very welcoming. I never felt excluded for being from another country as there are so many international students and the Dutch are very open to new cultures. The student life offers plenty of groups, workshops and interaction: these activities can truly help you focus on creating a career as a professional in your field. And, I've found it's always good to let your hair down after some serious studying and this city offers plenty of fun.

    The only thing I wish someone had told about Groningen is that it can be quite rainy – I would have definitely come a bit more prepared. However, I love how proactive the Dutch are: they are always out and about, cycling, exercising. Brazilians can take the good weather for granted, but not the Dutch: when the sun comes out, they really appreciate it and go outdoors to soak it all up.”
