(Process Engineering)

Two-year Master of Science course

Process engineering is the engineering discipline that conducts research into, develops, and realizes material change processes. It deals as a cross-sectional science with the conversion of materials in their nature, their properties, or their composition by means of physical, chemical, and biological processes with a view to producing usable intermediate or end products such as fuels, sugar, synthetics, proteins, cosmetics, dyestuffs, alcohols, plant protection products, or medications.

To achieve these targets the process engineering study program aims to enable students to recognize and formulate laws by means of which apparatus, machinery, and entire manufacturing plants can be planned, calculated, designed, built, and operated. The product qualities required are to be achieved by means of safe and environmentally compatible processes and a rational use of energy and raw materials.
