Programmes

Master in Chemical Engineering

InformationCourse/CS accredited by the Agency for Assessment and Accreditation of Higher Education (A3ES).
 

Accreditation of Programme

The programme is accredited by the national Agency for Assessment and Accreditation of Higher Education (A3ES).


The Master in Chemical Engineering (M.EQ), offered by the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP), is an academic degree which grants to the students 2nd cycle professional skills in the area of chemical engineering and related fields.

This training offer is almost entirely provided by the Department of Chemical Engineering. This master's gives students the opportunity to learn new skills and methodologies of work, which are in consonance with the evolution of teaching and learning practices in the best European institutions.

The programme prepares students for a professional career in practical or research activities in Chemical Engineering or related areas. Emphasizing a practical engineering culture simultaneously with the design activity, the syllabus offers students the possibility to acquire specific skills in one of the following specializations:

  • Processes and Product;
  • Energy;
  • Biotechnology;
  • Environment.
