Biotechnology and Chemical Engineering

The Bachelor studies in Biotechnology and Chemical Engineering is a combination of chemistry and technology, and to some content also biology in the case of Biotechnology and Food Engineering studies. The area includes production of many useful commodities in respect to society and common welfare, such as food, fuels, medical products, cosmetics and paints. Prospective carriers are often found in connection to development and manufacturing of these products, as well as environmental monitoring.

Good scientific knowledge is a quality of the graduated engineer and is developed during the studies. The first year studies are the same for all students.

During the second academic semester the professional major is chosen among three alternatives:
• Biotechnology and Food Engineering
• Chemical Engineering
• Materials and Surface Engineering

In addition to the professional major the student chooses a module from some other degree programme or one or two interdisciplinary elective modules, which are connected to her/his personal interests and goals. These studies support wide-ranging, and the diverse range ensures that the graduated engineer has a strong, applied and environmentally friendly measure of the field.

The studies include a 20-week guided work placement and a Bachelor’s thesis during the final year of study.

Chemical Engineering

On completion of the professional major, students
• know the concepts of chemistry and can apply them in their work
• are familiar with how substances behave in different conditions and can select the most suitable substances and raw materials for each application.
• know the most common process measurement applications and chemical analysis methods and can select the most suitable methods for each project
• can size equipment for unit operations and know how production facilities operate
• know both how to calculate material and energy balances for processes and how to affect mass and heat transfer, reaction rate and yield. In addition, they are able to use this knowledge to optimize reactors and processes.
• master process dynamics and process control engineering
• are able to function as design engineers in facility design projects and to apply facility design methods
• recognize the boundaries between chemical industry and environment and are familiar with the principles of sustainable development
