The Groningen science and engineering programmes stand out for their academic excellence. The work pace in the first year is generally high and the courses contents demanding. The first year curriculum concentrates on laying a sound basis for our engineering and natural science disciplines. This allows our students to choose their specialization tracks already in their second Bachelor's year.

Studeren in het buitenland

  • Studeren in het buitenland is facultatief
  • Maximaal 30 EC

Exchange: All our science and engineering programmes offer study abroad possibilities at a number of partner institutions. Our partners include top-100 universities in Europe (for example in Germany, UK, and Sweden) and in the USA, China, South-East Asia, and South America. Our exchange programmes have a typical duration of one semester and count toward your final degree.

We bieden de mogelijkheid in het buitenland te studeren bij een aantal partnerinstituten. Onder onze partners zijn ook een aantal top 100-universiteiten in Europa (oa Duitsland, Groot-Brittannië en Zweden) en in de VS, China, Zuidoost-Azië en Zuid-Amerika. Een periode in het buitenland duurt meestal 3 tot 6 maanden. Studeren in het buitenland is alleen mogelijk na goedkeuring van de examencommissie.

(Bindend) studieadvies

  • Minimaal 45 EC in de eerste 12 maanden (bindend)

You will be issued a study advice at the end of your first year of study. You can expect a positive study advice if you have earned at least 45 ECTS credit points (out of a total of 60 ECTS; most course units are 5 ECTS). If you have earned fewer than 45 ECTS and are issued a negative study advice, you will not be allowed to continue your degree programme.

You will receive a preliminary study advice in December to make sure that you know where you are. Please contact your study advisor as soon as possible if you have any questions about the BSA system.

Aan het einde van je eerste studiejaar krijg je een bindend studieadvies. Je krijgt een positief studieadvies als je minimaal 45 ECTS hebt gehaald (op een totaal van 60 ECTS, de meeste vakken zijn 5 ECTS). Bij een negatief studieadvies (minder dan 45 ECTS) mag je helaas niet doorgaan met de opleiding. Om ervoor te zorgen dat je precies weet waar je staat, krijg je al in december een voorlopig studieadvies.

Heb je vragen over het bindend studieadvies of over je studievoortgang? Neem dan zo snel mogelijk contact op met je studieadviseur.

Waarom in Groningen?

The Chemical Engineering programme in Groningen is unique due to the close connection with the Chemistry programme. The first year of Chemical Engineering and Chemistry is common and you can switch between the two in the entire first year.

Our research is among the finest in the world. The University's materials research institute ranks in the top-10 worldwide.

Our faculty is the home of the 2016 Nobel Prize Winner in Chemistry, Ben Feringa, and the Nobel Prize winner in Physics, Frits Zernike.

In Groningen kun je Scheikunde én Scheikundige technologie studeren. Je mag eerst een jaar rondkijken, dan definitief kiezen: je kunt je bij ons breed oriënteren.

Het aan de opleiding verbonden Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials staat in de top 10 van de Times Higher Education ranking en behoort daarmee tot de beste tien ter wereld.

Onze faculteit kent twee Nobelprijswinnaars: de Nobelprijs voor Scheikunde voor Ben Feringa in 2016 en de Nobelprijs voor Natuurkunde voor Frits Zernike.

    Challenging, but interesting!

    'I'm loving it here. The pace of study took some time to get used to, because each tutorial discusses a whole chapter of our study book. But you'll be fine as long as you attend all the lectures, which deal with all the material for the exam.

    I especially enjoyed Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry and Molecules, which are all about reactions and how they work. I find subjects like Physical Chemistry and Spectroscopy challenging, but very interesting. Alongside my studies I am a member of the rowing club Aegir, where I also stop in occasionally for drinks. I’m sharing a flat with two friends from secondary school, which is fantastic! We often eat together or go out to play sports.’

    'We try to upscale the reaction at Chemical Engineering'

    Have you always dreamed of doing a Bachelor's degree in Chemistry at a top-100 University?

    The combination of different fields makes it interesting

    'When you think of Philips you think of devices, but innovation has a much broader focus nowadays. Chemistry also plays a very important role. We are currently researching ways to improve scanners in hospitals by using molecular imaging.

    We make use of modified biomolecules to improve the visibility of abnormalities in the human body, such as cancer cells, which will light up during a scan. This way we hope to find cancer or heart diseases at a much earlier phase. This kind of research hands us starting points for new therapies. The combination of chemical research and medical application makes my work incredibly fascinating. It is a field of work which never bores and includes a lot of challenges, and where I can apply all of the courses which I had during my studies. I also like the fact that my work includes cooperation with people from a lot of different fields.
