Programmes of study
Chemical Engineering is involved in the following three courses of study at the Faculty of Science and Technology:
The department's objective is to graduate candidates (masters in technology) who are highly qualified for management, research and development positions within the chemical industry. The programme of study aims to provide a general introduction to industrial process chemistry and technical implementation. An overview of the courses provided by the Department of Chemical Engineering for the 5-year Master program is shown below.
|Semester||Subject of 7,5 ECTS||Subject of 7,5 ECTS||Subject of 7,5 ECTS||Subject of 7,5 ECTS|
|10th spring||TKP4900 Master thesis 30 ECTS|
|9th fall||Complementary subject||Specialization course||Specialization project of either 7,5 or 15 ECTS|
|8th spring||Choise of subject 1/2||choise of subject 2||Experts in Teamwork||Engineering subject from another program of study.|
|7th fall||Complementary subject||Process Design, project||Choise of subjetc 1||Choise of subject 1|
|6th spring||Technology management||Thermodynamic Methods||Process Design||Choise of subject 1|
|5th fall||Statistics||Separation technology||Chemical Reactor Technology||Material Technology/ Process modelling|
Courses in yellow cells are common for all students on the 5-year program "Industriell Kjemi og bioteknologi"
Please note that the course descriptions are the ones for the study year 2012-2013. The course descriptions for the study year 2013-2014 will be available from June 2013.
1. A minimum of 3 of the following 4 subjects listed must be elected (choise of subject 1):
- TKP4115 Surface and colloid chemistry
- TKP4140 Process Control
- TKP4155 Reaction kinetics and catalysis
- TKP4160 Transport phenomena.
2. At least one of the following courses must be chosen (choise of subjetc 2):
- TKP4135 Chemical prosess-system engineering
- TKP4150 Petrochemistry and oil refining
- TKP4130 Polymer chemistry
- TKP4145 Reactor technology
- TKP4180 Bioenergy and fiber technology
3. Specialisation occurs in the 5th year of the course. The specialisations are available within the research groups at the department:
- Catalysis and petrochemistry
- Polymer and colloid chemistry
- Process-system engineering
- Environmental and reactor technology
- Bioenergy and fiber technology
It is possible to allow the project to account for 7.5 Sp or 15 Sp. If a 7.5 Sp projet is chosen, an additional 7.5 subject must be chosen.
4. Master thesis
The master thesis is often written in relation to a current research or industrial project.
The close co-operation with SINTEF chemistry and PFI operations often lead to SINTEF and PFI researches acting as supervisors for final year projects.
Every year we receive suggestions for master thesis from our contacts in the industry, several of these come with an offer of a summer job as well. There are also good oppertunities to carry out thesis projects overseas/abroad.
