Technical Industrial Engineer in Chemical Engineering (1st cycle degree)

Training goals 

The studies leading to a Technical Industrial Engineering degree in Chemical Engineering focus mainly on core subjects, such as physics and mathematics, but special emphasis is also placed on other basic areas such as chemistry and chemical engineering.

One distinguishing feature of this degree course is that the amount of laboratory and practical work students are required to do increases each academic year.

As a result, students complement their theoretical training by learning to use the latest experimental and analytical techniques in chemical engineering, analytical chemistry, organic chemistry, physico-chemistry, chemical reactions and basic operations engineering, industrial chemistry and chemical process equipment control.

Furthermore, students are also offered a series of specialisation subjects that are grouped in two specialist pathways: Environment and Chemical Analysis.

A wide range of optional subjects are taught as complementary training designed to meet students' specific preferences or career expectations. These subjects include areas such as Electrochemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, Basic Operations Research or modern languages.

Career opportunities 

Chemical engineering studies provide graduates with a high degree of versatility that enables them to perform any of the following duties:

  • Certifications, legal consultancy and writing experts' reports for insurance purposes, legal testimony, and the like.
  • Control and instrumentation for chemical processes; experimentation in chemistry and chemical engineering, and chemical reaction engineering.
  • Technical management in private enterprises and in the public administration; technical offices, business administration and organising production; developing, directing and executing projects, and production manager.
  • Management and implementation of quality and environmental quality systems; occupational risk prevention, and safety and hygiene in the workplace.
