Course content

Chemical Engineering is an interdisciplinary engineering science with emphasis on the fundamentals and applications of technical chemistry and mechanical engineering. As a result, a broad range of study in both of these disciplines is provided so that students gain a solid foundation in both fields. Furthermore, interdisciplinary partnerships with other subject areas are encouraged so that knowledge of practical requirements (e.g. management, legal aspects) can be broadened. The fundamentals are taught in the bachelor's course; more in-depth knowledge can be pursued in the Chemical Engineering master's course, in a related master's course or directly in the working world.

Study conditions

The Chemical Engineering bachelor's course has limited places so that a "familiar" learning environment with intensive support can be offered. Waiting times for laboratory space are unheard of here. The laboratories and pilot plant are well equipped with test and demonstration equipment. An application-oriented project is normally undertaken as part of the bachelor's thesis.

Follow-on master's courses at TU Wien

TU Wien offers a master's in Chemical Engineering (E066 473), which is directly based on the bachelor's in Chemical Engineering. There is also the option of taking a related master's course at TU Wien or at other universities in and out of Austria.

Career prospects

Because of the solid and interdisciplinary nature of the course, there is no typical career path for someone with a degree in Chemical Engineering, as graduates can be employed in a broad range of fields. Graduates are frequently employed in the following areas:

  • Research and development
  • Process development
  • Plant engineering (planning, design and project implementation)
  • Operation and production
  • Power and environmental engineering
  • Application engineering, technical acquisition
  • Project and plant management
  • Safety engineering/accident prevention, environmental protection and waste management
  • Repairs and maintenance of chemical engineering systems
