Do you want to make a difference in a sustainable future society? At the graduate school of Chemical Engineering, you will deal with the interaction between chemical and physical features in industrial chemical processes and products. As a doctoral student your aim is to learn to design them optimally, both from an environmental and financial point of view.
Industries in many kinds of areas need these competencies, such as Automotive, Pulp and paper, Chemicals/Materials/Plastics, Pharmaceutical, Food, Forestry and Equipment producers. There are also a lot of consulting agencies. You will meet challenges, but also great possibilities. Within the field of Chemical Engineering, you will find opportunities to work with basic science as well as applied projects often connected to the needs of, and in cooperation with society/industry.

The graduate school is organised within the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering.
