Chemical Engineering for Energy and the Environment at KTH

Students gain advanced competence in chemical engineering and obtain modern tools to analyse various processes, such as the production of biofuels, energy storage or the purification of drinking water – through the whole chain, from raw materials to product. The analyses often include aspects on chemicals, heat, electricity and environment.

A large number of elective courses allows students to tailor their education to meet personal and professional goals, and complementary skills like problem-solving and team work are emphasised in many of the courses, as is written and oral communication. The courses are therefore, to a large degree, based on seminars and project assignments as a complement to traditional lectures.

The education is closely linked to the research conducted at the School of Chemical Science and Engineering at KTH, the Department of Chemical Engineering and Technology in particular, and to Swedish industry. The programme also provides an excellent basis for activities in countries outside of Sweden, as most of the teachers have close contacts with foreign universities and companies and there are strong opportunities to study parts of the programme abroad.

Career

The job market for engineers graduating from this programme is broad and international. The programme provides an excellent basis for opportunities in industry as well as for further academic studies on a doctoral level.

Chemical engineers with a profile towards energy and environment are very attractive for many different branches of industry – such as suppliers of energy and chemicals, the pulp and paper industry, the vehicle industry and in companies specialising in environmental issues like the recycling of materials.

Our engineers can be found in traditional Swedish industry, in small start-up companies, consultant companies, governmental institutions, research institutes and universities. The need for engineers with the competence offered by the programme will continue to be great in the future.
