Name: Biotechnology, Chemistry and Environmental Engineering

Type: University Programme

Duration: 2 years

European transfer credits: 120 ECTS

You will learn about the basic chemical and biological processes involved in chemical and biotechnological production, and in environmental engineering.

The programme offers these specialisations:

  • Environmental Engineering, which aims at providing knowledge concerning transport, transformations and effects of pollutants in environmental systems. Studied at the Aalborg campus of Aalborg University.
  • Chemical Engineering, which deals with the design of chemical or biotechnical processes, for example in the production of foods, fuels or plastics. Studied at the Esbjerg campus of Aalborg University.
  • Industrial Biotechnology, which focuses on the technological use of biological materials, the application of biological and biochemical processes in industry and waste-stream refinement. Studied at the Esbjerg campus of Aalborg University.
  • Oil and Gas Technology, which will give you an understanding of the processes and equipment used in the oil and gas industry. You will also learn to design production plants taking environmental and economical aspects into account. Studied at the Esbjerg campus of Aalborg University.

Teaching varies between lectures and classroom instruction. In addition, there is often project work together with other students. Students are encouraged to participate in class discussions.

In the final 6 months of the programme, you will be writing your MSc thesis.

Biotechnology, Chemistry and Environmental Engineering can be studied as a:

  • 2-year MSc degree programme (120 ECTS)

You also have the possibility to take single courses or subjects within the programme.

Graduation from the master's degree programme confers the title Master of Science in Engineering (MSc).
