The two-year programme offers a core programme and then the choice between four specialisations: Advanced Process Technology, Bio-based Products, Industrial Catalysis and Polymeric Products.
Your research project will take place in one of our research groups in the field of Green Chemical Reaction Engineering and Chemical Product Technology. The Green Chemical Reaction Engineering group investigates the development of highly intensified catalytic technology for biomass conversion to biofuels and biobased chemicals. The Chemical Product Technology group performs research for the design of new or improved chemical products. Particular attention is devoted to the development of new catalytic systems and of polymeric products for specific applications. These activities are generally framed in a comprehensive sustainability context.
The unique feature of studying this Master programme at the University of Groningen is the combination of a wide range of Chemical Engineering topics with a solid background in Chemistry and a focus on Sustainability, which will allow you to become a modern chemical engineer that is well versed in both Product and Process Technology.
