Dit is de Engelstalige versie van de opleiding Ingenieurswetenschappen: chemische technologie.

KU Leuven
This programme is primarily aimed at applying chemical engineering principles to develop technical products and to design, control and improve industrial processes.
Students also learn to take environmental and safety issues into account during all phases of the process (research, development, design and operation).
Two guiding principles of sustainable development
- the rational exploitation of resources and energy, and the application of the best available technology - are emphasised, as is the mantra \"reduce, reuse, recycle\".
As a chemical engineering student, you will learn to think in a process-oriented manner and grasp the complexity of physico-chemical systems.
Even more than other specialists, you will be asked to solve problems of a very diverse nature.
Insights into processes at the nano and micro scale are fundamental for the development of new products and/or (mega-scale) technologies.
While students should have a foundational knowledge of chemistry, the underlying chemistry of the elements and components, their properties and mutual reactions are not the main focal points of the programme.

The Master of Science in Chemical Engineering leads to engineers with a comprehensive training that master the fundamental chemical engineering principles.
A Master of Science in Chemical Engineering has to ensure the design, construction, improvement and maintenance of installations and equipment in the chemical industry.
He or she has to be capable to innovate, to have an overview over an entire installation as well as a detailed insight in the performance of its individual parts and the way in which they interact.
It requires a combination of abstract reasoning and common sense, aiming at a practical implementation.
Of course, a Master of Science in Chemical Engineering is also trained to be involved in and lead research and development.

Beroepsbeschrijving- en uitwegen

As a chemical engineer you will predominantly work in industrial branches involved in (the production of) bulk and specialty chemicals, oil and natural gas (petrochemical companies and refineries), non-ferrometallurgics, energy, waste treatment, food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology.
The following professional activities lie before you:

-  design, planning and building of installations (\'project   engineer\')
-  monitoring and optimisation of existing processes (\'process   engineer\')
-  design/formulation and optimisation of products (\'product   engineer\')
-  R&D of technical products, processes and devices
-  customer services, retailing (\'sales engineer\')
-  management
Apart from these traditional career options, graduates are also much appreciated in other sectors for their insight into complex processes.
Chemical engineers are often employed in the financial and governmental sector, for instance, to supervise industrial activities, deliver permissions and compose regulations with respect to safety and environmental issues.
As self-employed persons, chemical engineers work in engineering offices or as consultants.
Chemical engineers are often also quite successful as entrepreneurs.
