Learning Support

    Chemical and Process Engineering Chemical and Process Engineering

    The student learns to create new sustainable solutions as a response to major global challenges, and to invent, design, develop and promote new technical solutions. The Master's studies are strongly industry-oriented, focusing on fine and commodity chemicals, biorefining and metallurgical industries.

    The Master's programme takes two years, corresponds to 120 ECTS credits and leads to the degree of Master of Science in Technology. Three semesters  include lectures and exercises, as well as laboratory and project work. The fourth semester is  devoted to the Master's thesis. The language of tuition in the programme is English.

    The degree structure of 120 ECTS (2017-2018) consists of:
    - Core Studies of 20-21 ECTS credits
    - Specialisation Studies of 61 ECTS credits (at min.)
    - Minor Studies of 20 ECTS credits (at min.)
    - Elective Studies.

    Learning outcomes
     

    After completing studies in Chemical and Process Engineering, the student will obtain sufficient scientific and technological knowledge for a career in chemical and process engineering in different fields of process industry. Diverse teaching methods and multicultural and multidisciplinary study groups ensure that the student will have good skills in team and project work, communication and languages, presentation, culture and leadership.

    The graduate will

    • have solid theoretical background in core areas of chemical engineering
    • have strong engineering analysis and problem solving skills
    • have trained your engineering practice skills such as making approximations and decisions under uncertainty
    • have the courage to create innovations and new technical solutions
    • possess project working and communication skills needed in the modern working environment.

     

    The Head of the Master's programme in Chemical and Process Engineering is professor, D.Sc. (Tech.) Tuomo Sainio.

    Chemical Engineering for Water Treatment Chemical Engineering for Water Treatment

    The student learns how waters are purified not only efficiently but also in a sustainable and economical manner and obtains knowledge and skills that can be used to solve water related challenges in the future. The student gets competencies to act as professional in the rapidly developing, multidisciplinary area of water and the environment. 

    The Master's programme takes two years, corresponds to 120 ECTS credits and leads to the degree of Master of Science in Technology. Three semesters  include lectures and exercises, as well as laboratory and project work. The fourth semester is  devoted to the Master's thesis. The language of tuition in the programme is English.

    The degree structure of 120 ECTS consists of:
    - Core Studies of 20 ECTS credits
    - Specialisation Studies of 60 ECTS credits (at min.)
    - Minor Studies of 20 ECTS credits (at min.)
    - Elective Studies.

    Learning outcomes
     

    After completing studies in Chemical Engineering for Water Treatment, the student will have acquired comprehensive knowledge in water treatment, and the specific knowledge and competencies necessary to have the expertise in the chosen area of specialisation. Diverse teaching methods and multicultural and multidisciplinary study groups ensure that you will have good skills in team and project work, communication and languages, presentation, culture and leadership.

    The graduate will

    • have comprehensive understanding of the BAT and future water treatment technologies, covering advanced oxidation and various separation methods
    • be able to demonstrate broad knowledge in process and environmental analytics and monitoring
    • have adopted the principles of sustainability in the water treatment
    • be able to demonstrate a critical understanding of relevant theories and techniques, problem-solving skills, and ability to independently use knowledge, equipment and tools for the design and development of practical water treatment applications.
    • be able to work with others in task-orientated groups participating and interacting in the group in a productive manner.
    • be able to logically think through a problem and solve it.

     

    The Head of the Master's programme in Chemical Engineering for Water Treatment is D.Sc. (Tech.) Riina Salmimies.
