The two-year programme offers a core programme and then the choice between five specialisations: Advanced Process Technology, Polymeric Products, Bio-based Products and Processes, Industrial Catalysis and Renewable Energy. The unique feature of studying this Master's programme at the University of Groningen is the combination of a wide range of Chemical Engineering topics with a solid background in Applied Chemistry and a focus on Sustainability, which will allow you to become a modern chemical engineer that is well versed in both Product and Process Technology.

Your research project will take place in one of our research groups in the field of Green Chemical Reaction Engineering and Chemical Product Technology. The Green Chemical Reaction Engineering group investigates the development of highly intensified catalytic technology for biomass conversion to biofuels and biobased chemicals. The Chemical Product Technology group performs research for the design of new or improved chemical products. Particular attention is devoted to the development of new catalytic systems and of polymeric products for specific applications. These activities are generally framed in a comprehensive sustainability context.

De stad


G.T.D. Bernoulli
The Groningen Debating Society for Chemical Engineers Bernoulli was founded on 20 May 1985 for students interested in Product and Process Technology.
Although most of the members of G.T.D. Bernoulli are students of Chemical Engineering, the society is also open to students of Industrial Engineering and Management, Technology & Operations Management and Industrial Pharmacy at the University of Groningen.

What I find remarkable about this degree programme is the relationship between lecturers and students

I have already almost finished the first year of my Master's degree programme, and I hope I've passed all my exams! I am following the Catalysis track.

After the summer, I will continue by conducting a study. This study will revolve around how to extract aviation fuel from CO2 and carbon monoxide using a catalyst, and above all, how this can be done more efficiently and on a larger scale. My Bachelor’s research was on a similar topic, and I asked my supervisor whether I could be involved in another research study in this area.I wanted to stay in Groningen upon obtaining my Bachelor’s degree...
What I find remarkable about this degree programme is the relationship between lecturers and students. It is surprisingly enjoyable; the lecturers are very approachable. You can easily ask them questions or perhaps even ask them whether they know of any interesting student assistant jobs.I also value that the degree programme is continuously working on improvement, that there are annual feedback sessions, and that they actually want to know what students think of it. I couldn’t attend the feedback session this year, and the lecturer made a separate appointment with me to hear my thoughts.
