The course in brief


The Master's degree program has the traditional footprint of an advanced course in chemical engineering and extends the technical background of the three-year engineer with a specialization in Chemistry and Process: it starts from the analysis of transformation processes including at the local level to delve into the functioning of individual equipment and the processes that transform raw materials into finished products.

After the course you will be able to design, conduct and optimize industrial processes particularly in the chemical, biotechnology, food, energy and materials industries.

Learning by doing

The course includes classroom lectures, numerical exercises, computer lab, chemistry and technology lab, visits to plants and research centers, experiences abroad under Erasmus, seminars, experimental and computational theses, internships in industry.

Professional outlets

The Chemical and Process Engineering graduate has wide employment opportunities in: chemical, petrochemical, food, pharmaceutical, and process industries; companies for the production and processing of polymeric, ceramic, metallic, and composite materials for applications in the chemical, mechanical, electrical, electronic, energy, construction, biomedical, and environmental fields; technical facilities of the public administration and municipal utility companies; companies operating in the energy supply and distribution sector; laboratories and research centers of public or private entities; and professional firms.

Did you know that.

The chemical engineer is one of the three most sought-after profiles in the job market
85% of chemical engineers are employed within the first year after graduation
92% of graduates in Genoa are overall satisfied with the master's degree program
Teamwork and interaction with industry is encouraged
Experience abroad is aided by the wide range of Erasmus exchanges on offer
The course has the international high quality accreditation EUR-ACE


Engineer broad mind

By means of a solid basic preparation and extensive technical applied content, the course provides the cultural background suitable for the training of a professional figure capable of dealing with a good part of the technical and organizational problems required in the field of chemical and process engineering and, more generally, industrial engineering.

The graduate can profitably fit into the different areas of industry, address the specific requirements related to plant design and operation and optimization of industrial processes, paying attention to human safety and respect for the environment.

To achieve this, the course includes the study of methodological and operational aspects of the disciplines characterizing traditional process engineering without neglecting interesting innovative applications.
