Studying the Bachelor's programme in Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology at Aalborg University - Esbjerg, you will take part in the development of processes and products needed to make our further existence on Earth sustainable. New technological discoveries are needed within water treatment and environmental protection to prevent impacts of our activities.


New active and smart materials are needed to improve our quality of life using less resources. New biotechnological processes are needed to avoid the use of potentially harmful chemicals in production, and new insights are needed to develop new energy carriers (fuels) based on renewable sources and produced through sustainable production.

As an engineer within chemistry and biotechnology you will get the skills and competences to develop and design processes that solve societal challenges. 

During this Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology programme from Aalborg University - Esbjerg, you will through our problem based teaching approach learn to analyse a problem and figure out exactly what’s needed of a good solution.

You will in a creative academic environment learn to use your knowledge and be challenged on your ideas by professional researchers. Through experiments in state of the art labs you will test your developed concepts and see for yourself if it works. You will be involved in industrial collaboration, working on problems from companies and experience that you already as a student make a difference.

You will explore questions such as:

  • How can we get the most out of any resource, reuse and create value out of waste and protect the environment from harmful discharge?
  • How do we go from an oil-based to a biomass-based society and optimize chemical and biological processes so that they requires less energy to operate and can be based on cheaper and sustainable raw materials?
  • How do we make new innovative materials that are “smart” (self-cleaning, energy producing, extremely light weight and durable etc.)?
  • How do we use biotechnology and natural processes to modify microorganisms into production platforms for even more important compounds?
