Chemical and Materials Engineering
Integration of Process Technology and Materials
This master’s programme aims to train students to become engineers employable in fields such as the petrochemical and polymer industry, pharmaceutical industry, food industry, biotechnology, inorganic bulk chemistry, extractive metallurgy and the recycling industry. The master’s programme encompasses two distinct profiles: Process Technology and Materials. In the Process Technology profile, the student is trained to operate in production units, consultant engineering firms and the environmental sector. The Materials profile covers production and development facilities for different types of materials. The master’s programme has a common core of 56 ECTS, ensuring a strong mutual interaction and integration between both profiles. The development of environmentally friendly and safe production processes for materials, the shaping and processing of materials into intermediate or finished products, and the optimal integration of materials in other disciplines are strongly related to the optimisation of environmenally friendly chemical processes in general.
Information technology: omnipresent and ever-evolving
Electronics and information technology spans a broad range of topics related to omni-present systems and devices: smartphones, laptops, robots, games, cars, medical imagers, solar farms, the ‘Internet of Things’, and so on. With Bruface, you can become an expert in this field, ensuring a career in an ever-evolving aspect of society. The programme combines a rigorous scientific and technical education with the development of practical skills. It encourages independence, creativity and inventiveness, and it shapes competent engineers who can contribute to society on many – if not all – levels.
Harvesting synergy between engineering and architecture
The master programme in Architectural Engineering trains designers to harvest the synergy between two disciplines: engineering and architecture. The programme provides students with an advanced level of knowledge and insight, and encourages them to be creative and inventive when integrating their knowledge into a complex architectural design. Our goal is to combine the challenges and inventiveness of the modern building industry with a flair for originality and creativity.
All of this is combined with management training, aimed to thoroughly train students to lead architectural projects. An architectural engineer designs complex, sustainable buildings and large-scale architectural projects, and helps shaping the world around us. We offer this programme with cutting-edge, scientific research integrated, optimally preparing you for a wide range of careers.
Civil engineers: more than concrete!
Are you interested in shaping a sustainable world, in planning, designing or constructing the built and natural environment, and changing the lives of millions of people for the better?
