Chemical Engineering/Environmental Engineering (B.Sc.)

General

Our bachelor course in Chemical Engineering/Environmental Engineering gives you a broad foundation education and specializes in the chemical engineering or in the environmental engineering sector. 

Chemical Engineering in-depth

Chemical engineering is a science in which chemistry and engineering are linked together. It mainly comprises of chemistry and process and production engineering. It applies knowledge of these disciplines for the development, production and control of chemical products and the development and improvement of chemical processes. The study of chemistry engineering is based on the classical natural sciences such as inorganic, analytical and organic chemistry, physics, physical chemistry and mathematics and combines them with engineering scientific subjects such as process engineering, mechanical engineering, control technology and material sciences. 

Environmental Engineering in-depth 

Environmental engineering is an interdisciplinary science. It consists mainly of chemistry, biology, process engineering and computer science. It applies knowledge of these disciplines to detect environmental pollution in soil, water and air, to reduce this pollution in production facilities and to remediate polluted areas. The main contents are: issues and objectives of environmental protection, process engineering, analytics, process management/process automation and reaction engineering to optimize the processes and products. In addition to a basic knowledge in the natural sciences and engineering subjects, an awareness of the environmental issues is gained (e.g. through lectures on environmental field air, - soil, water). Then the methods and techniques that allow reduction to the environmental burden (e.g. environmental controlling) are employed. Knowledge of environmental problems and technology will enable the graduates to find ways to connect ecology and economics in a work environment (e.g. EU - Eco audit).

Professional Profile

The bachelor degree in Chemical Engineering or in Environmental Engineering offers you a wide range of professional prospects in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, in the food industry, in engineering offices for plant and apparatus engineering, in recycling and disposal companies or for example in the environmental offices of public service. You are also active in the field of process development and optimization, production management, analytics, be able to create redevelopment concepts or environmental land registries.
For distinguished graduates, the way to research is open. You can also attain further qualifications at the University of Applied Sciences in Emden with the Master Applied Life Sciences. Further on, a doctorate qualification is possible as well.
