MSc in Chemical Engineering (2 years)

– Programme components
The objective is to graduate candidates who are highly qualified for management, research and development positions within the chemical industry. The study programmes in Chemical Engineering aims to provide a general introduction to industrial process chemistry and technical implementation.

For more information take a look at the Study plan for the masterprogram.


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 researchers acting as co-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 opportunities to carry out thesis projects overseas/abroad. Read more about the master thesis here.
