Master of Science

Format: Campus

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. 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. 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. 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. This is an initial master's programme. You can follow it on a half-time or full-time basis. An increased tuition fee of 6000 EUR is not applicable for students who come from countries belonging to the European Economic Area (EEA).
