Program Overview

Program Description:
This master includes a variety of disciplines. In addition to fundamental chemical-scientific course units, the curriculum includes the fields of socio-economics (company management, economy) and chemical technology (engineering, separation techniques, chemical process technology,industrial process technology, surface chemistry, environmental technology, etc.). An elaborate cross-campus elective subject package, as well as the master's thesis in a research and/or industrial context allow you to place your own emphasis. This is an initial master's programme. You can follow it on a half-time or full-time basis.

Sustainable Process and Materials Engineering focus: In Sustainable Process and Materials Engineering, the central point is reliable technology that meets today's requirements without putting future generations in a tight spot. This implies that materials and energy must be used efficiently, taking into account the impact on the environment. Thus, on the one hand this focus is aimed at sustainable designing, development, and manufacturing of products and systems, and on the other it is aimed at development, properties, characterization, production and processing of (new) materials. The 5E-engineer: more than just a technological expert: In essence, engineers find intelligent solutions to technological problems. 5E-engineers however are more than experts in technology. They have distinct entrepreneurial skills and are capable of coaching both themselves and others. 5E-engineers are aware of their place in the world and the impact they have on nature and culture. Finally, they know how to integrate everything and gain a higher insight. No traditional programme can achieve this. The 5E engineering curriculum at Group T Campus incorporates collaboration in cross-professional tasks in an environment characterized by diversity and a plurality of world visions. The 5 Es: Engineering, Enterprising, Educating, Ensembling, and Environmenting. Add an in-company or project-based learning experience to your master's: At Campus Group T, you can follow your master's in a one-year or a two-year formula. The two-year formula adds 60 ECTS and 2 semesters to the standard one-year formula. The extra ECTS are made up by an elaborate learning experience in and with a company, with an innovative engineering challenge as the central assignment. It is set in a team, has a distinct international dimension, and usually requires a multidisciplinary approach. Entrepreneurs and students alike are encouraged to innovate, to transfer knowledge and to grow. It is a unique cross-fertilization between company and university college.

The Master of Industrial Sciences in Chemical Engineering is capable of: · selecting, formulating, analyzing and answering appropriately a research question of his own choice based on a theoretical or practical problem in his area of technology while taking into consideration the paradigms and making use of appropriate research methodology. · designing, implementing, testing, and improving industrial processes in a chemically and technologically responsible manner. · researching, developing and applying new materials such as polymers, composites, metals and ceramics. · integrating environment and safety in the various phases of a process supported by the principles of sustainable development. · managing technology and communicating efficiently the results of his own work, study and research. · continuing the process of self-education as well as coaching others in their development as individuals and professionals. · integrating relevant research, work and/or study experiences acquired in a different environment either at home or abroad. · functioning and cooperating in multidisciplinary and international teams through project work and through an exchange of views and opinions. · recognizing and taking into consideration the ethical, economic, ecological and aesthetic aspects and implications of his actions
