Chemical Technology and Engineering

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.

These are the studies that exceeded my expectations and more… Chemical Technology and Engineering program is not only interesting but also extremely valuable in further career paths (students, save your class notes for later!). I remember my classes and extremely competent teachers, who considered me their colleague, with a wave of great emotions. I am glad and thankful that university found a company that lay down the path for my career. During my studies I completed an internship there, what not only allowed to write a final thesis of exceptional quality, but also an opportunity to be seen – it is my 9th year in the company where I feel like a valuable asset to the team.

I knew that I want to become a chemist before even graduating high school, so I was already preparing to apply to KTU Faculty of Chemical Technology. After taking the chemistry exam I decided I am more interested in the more technical part of chemistry – chemical engineering, so I entered the Chemical Technology and Engineering program during the early admission period. I can tell this was a great decision because in the Faculty of Chemical Technology I grew up as a person with critical thinking skills and obtained priceless knowledge on process engineering – this even helped me to get employed while I was still studying.

Thanks to my lecturers, during my studies I have started to work with industrial companies. Even without having graduated from university, I already had a lot of job offers. During my studies I acquired a broad spectrum of knowledge that I now can use not only to develop new products but also to implement new technologies in the production process.
