Laurea Magistrale (MSc) - 2016/2017 a.y.
Industrial and Information Engineering
Mission and goals
Chemical Engineering and Chemical Engineers provide the leading-edge solutions to the society’s needs: we need efficient and clean technologies for energy transformation, technologically advanced materials, better medicines, efficient food production techniques, a clean environment, a better utilization of the natural resources. Chemical Engineering plays a pivotal role because all these challenges have a common denominator: they involve chemical processes. Chemical Engineers are the "engineers of chemistry": by making use of chemistry, physics and mathematics they describe the chemical processes from the molecular level to the macroscale (chemical plant), and design, operate, and control all processes that produce and/or transform materials and energy.
The Master of Science programme in Chemical Engineering completes the basic preparation of the bachelor chemical engineer and provide guided paths towards high-level professional profiles which are employed in various industrial sectors including the chemical, pharmaceutical, food, biological and automotive industry; energy production and management; transformation and process industries; engineering companies designing, developing and implementing processes and plant; research centres and industrial laboratories; technical structures in Public Administration; environmental and safety consultancy firms.
