Master of Science (M.Sc.)

Enrollment is not possible for this course currently.


Building on the Bachelor of Chemical Engineering (or other engineering bachelor's degrees) the students deepen and specialize their knowledge in various areas of process technology: systems and safety engineering, mineral processing equipment, chemical reaction engineering, mechanical and thermal process engineering, environmental engineering, renewable resources, energy process engineering and process optimization/process-integrated environmental protection. Currently holding six chairs process engineering, the university can offer a broad-based study course that gives graduates unrestricted access to the many options of the process engineering profession. A special feature of process engineering in Cottbus is close co-operation with the environmental sciences and the study of environmental issues.

Alumnus Dr. Jan Kopyscinski

BTU was the perfect place for me to start my career and to learn and to find friends. Academically, I really like the small class sizes and the very good laboratories. I remember my flatmates, my fellow students and friends and our great time we had.

Dr. Jan Kopyscinski, Dr. Jan Kopyscinski is since 2014 an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering in Toronto, Canada. He is leading the laboratory of Catalytic Process Engineering

Es waren die mechanische und die thermische Verfahrenstechnik, die mich von Baden-Württemberg zum Studium an die BTU geführt haben. Auch der Bezug zu den Umweltwissenschaften war mir wichtig.
