Chemical Engineering for Sustainable Development (LM-22)

  • Type: Master's Degree
  • Duration: 2 years
  • Credits: 120

Attention to the fight against climate change and environmental degradation are today considered elements at the basis of economic and social development. The need to plan a sustainable future can be the basis of a university education that has its roots iningchemical engineering, a discipline that deals with the design and optimization of a vast range of production and transformation processes of substances and materials. Thus, this CdLM was born with the training objective of acquiring technical skills to intervene on the chemical, biochemical or physical state of substances in plants operating in industrial sectors with the specific focus on sustainability and improving the quality of life.

The course offers students to direct their education towards two paths: Environment and Energy e Pharma and Biotech industry. The former trains specialized technical figures to operate in the plant engineering and industrial plant design sectors with a particular focus on the climate change and energy sectors. The second, on the other hand, trains specialized figures to operate in the circular economy sector, in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry and more generally in the Biotech sector which is rapidly developing all over the world.

The presence of numerous corporate teachers, the possibility of internship thesis in companies and abroad, combined with a placement close to 100% one year after graduation certainly represent the strengths of the CdLM.

The professional trained by this CdLM is a extremely flexible and highly specialized figure, who engage in the development, planning, design or operational management of plants, systems, processes or services in various industrial sectors. Graduates easily place themselves in: energy, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, biotechnology, food or food companies ingengineering, consultancy in the environmental sector, manufacturing companies, industrial laboratories.
