Programme overview

It is safe to say that technology and innovation are the driving forces behind the progress of humankind. However, for that we need creative and well-versed engineering professionals who would understand more than plain terminology. Are you one of them – interested in chemistry, innovation, technology, and are constantly thinking of new, original ideas? Then BSc in Chemical Technology and Engineering at KTU is a perfect choice for you!

The demand for chemical engineering specialists is never diminishing and their work is valued because they are industrial innovators who are capable of designing processes and managing technological systems. As humanity’s need for new products is always growing, skilled chemical engineers are needed to analyze the trends in demand for chemical products, expand the knowledge and influence public opinions in the field of engineering.

The curriculum for Chemical Technology and Engineering program is designed to combine theoretical knowledge with technological skills, in-depth expertise of designing and carrying out industrial processes, and laboratory practice.

To cater to the interests and abilities of future graduates, the program is tailored to offer specializations in technologies of inorganic or organic materials. Modern laboratories with the newest equipment are available for students to uses and practice hands-on skills for modelling and designing processes.

According to job market statistics, the employment rate for chemical engineers is one of the highest – up to 70% of them are employed right after graduation.
