It is possible to choose between the following two areas of focus during the master's programme in Chemical and Process Engineering:

  • Plant and System Engineering
  • Chemical and Process Engineering

In the related optional modules, it is possible to specialise further in a particular subject of choice. In this regard, the following optional subjects have been established:

  • Design and Simulation of Chemical and Process Engineering Systems
  • Engineering Science
  • Fuel and Energy Technology
  • Design and Simulation of Energy Systems
  • Environment and Resources
  • Material Technology
  • Chemical Technologies

As the master's programme in Chemical and Process Engineering is an interfaculty programme, optional and compulsory modules from the master's programmes in Mechanical Engineering, Business Engineering/Mechanical Engineering and master's programme in Technical Chemistry can also be chosen as related optional modules to a limited extent.

The compulsory master's thesis is another opportunity to further specialise in a particular area.
