More efficient utilization of raw materials, circular economy, biorefinement and clean water all require separation and purification technology. All of most important production processes include separation and purification phases. The cost of separation has actually been estimated to about 70% of costs the process industry. We educate future experts to handle global challenges. We produce new research knowledge to develop more environmental friendly, and more energy and cost efficient separation and purification processes, which also produce less waste, to benefit industry and society.
The Degree programme in Chemical Engineering runs a Bachelor's programme (taught in Finnish) and two new Master's programmes starting in 2018: Biorefineries (suitable for distance learning) and Chemical Engineering and Water Treatment. There are three Master's programmes still running, where the last intake was in 2017: Process Chemistry (in Finnish), Chemical and Process Engineering and Chemical Engineering for Water Treatment.
The BSc and MSc programmes in Chemical Engineering are EUR-ACE®- and ASIIN -accredited programmes. For detailed information on the accredited programmes, see webpages of LUT and its partners in the accreditation and the certification:
