Research and education in a world in motion

We live in a world in constant motion. Global communication and access to information is just a click away, and every new day brings technological advancement with new tools for creating, shaping and developing the world around us.

The "global village" has been an actuality for years in the Department DTU Chemical and Biochemical Engineering; We work in a dynamic,  international environment and achieve results across disciplinary, geographical and cultural boundaries.

Among our close collaborators are some of the biggest danish companies and a wide range of international corporations engaging in our work area.

In our daily work we are often met by e.g. economic, cultural or environmental challenges, which by far outreaches our core competences. This puts high demands on the professional competence and versatility of all our employees.

In the Department DTU Chemical and Biochemical Engineering, we know that a world in motion calls for engineers and scientists with all-round and up-to-date qualifications. We train the chemical engineers of the future: Engaged and versatile people who are fully prepared to get involved in the world around us.



Department of Chemical Engineering  (KT) is part of The Technical University of Denmark (DTU).
The Department offers education and carries out research in the common disciplines of chemical engineering, e. g. fluid mechanics, technical thermodynamics, heat transmission, separation processes, reaction technology, process regulation, process- and plant projecting and chemical product development. In addition we train and do research in fields like polymers, catalysis and aerosol technology, modern separation processes in chemical, biochemical and pharmaceutical industries, combustion and prevention of air pollution, viable energy production, oil- and gas-technology and computerbased process technology.

The Department of Chemical Engineering has approximately 140 employees, 30 of which are full-time scientific staff members. Every year around 15 Ph.D's, 15 Bachelors in Chemical Engineering and 45 MsC's in Chemical Engineering graduate from the department.
