PhD in Chemical Engineering

At the Department of Chemical Engineering PhD studies are offered within a wide spectra of interesting and important national and international engineering fields.

The thesis may be focused towards design of novel chemical processes, scaleup of new chemical processes from laboratory scale to industrial scale, or optimize spesific existing chemical processes. In other cases it is more interesting to develop methods, experimental as well as mathematical and numerical, as a tool for better characterization, investigation and understanding of the physical and chemical prochesses which determine the performance of the different process units.
