What is a cheap way of making clean drinking water? If we ever run out of crude oil, how can we produce liquid fuels from natural gas, coal, waste wood or even algae? And how can you make useable products out of waste materials? These questions at first glance seem unrelated – but each one of them is tied up with the Chemical Science and Engineering programme offered by the University of Twente (UT).
This English-taught Bachelor's programme at the University of Twente is all about focussing on the design of new (sustainable) processes and materials.
The applied nature of our programme ensures a lot of variety. You will discover that societal interests, profitability, sustainability and good planning and communication are often just as important as the technological solution.
Once you complete your Master's in Chemical Engineering, your chances on the job market are very good. Elsevier's 'Best jobs' stated in 2016 that almost all graduates found jobs within six months of finishing.
More than half of our graduates opt for a career in business with companies like Shell, ExxonMobil, Unilever, AkzoNobel, DSM, DOW Chemicals, Friesland Campina or BTG, one of the University of Twente's many spin-off companies. Possible positions include:
