The degree in Chemical and Process Engineering is among those that offer the best employment prospects. By studying chemical engineering you combine a basic chemical culture with an engineering approach, so you have the satisfaction of moving from the laboratory to the industrial plant, industrially developing products and designing equipment for production. The broad engineering education and the study of a limited amount of equipment enable the chemical engineer to be employed not only in the chemical industry, but also in the energy, food, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, environmental, and safety sectors. At Genoa, the number of students is small, which makes it possible to offer a personalized training: the course is attentive to the insertion of freshmen into the university world and supports the path of first-year students. The balance between face-to-face lectures and hands-on labs ensures that each student acquires the theoretical foundations along with applied experience for each teaching. What will you study In the first year along with engineering area subjects you will be provided with the mathematical, physical, chemical, and computer knowledge necessary to cope with further studies. In second year you will consolidate the mathematical and chemical-physical background and find disciplines of both industrial engineering and chemical engineering and study industrial chemical processes. In the third year you will encounter other industrial engineering subjects and will study in depth chemical plant engineering and reactor engineering. There will also be two elective subjects that will allow you to customize your education. The internship and thesis preparation will allow you to apply what you have learned, working in a company or laboratory, where you can develop other operational skills essential to complete your preparation. Remember that you can do part of your studies abroad thanks to University scholarships, such as the Erasmus+ program, and agreements entered into by the degree program with other European locations. After graduation The majority of three-year graduates in Chemical and Process Engineering continue their studies in the master's degree of the same name, meeting the current demands of the manufacturing world.
