Process Systems Engineering (PSE)

Process Systems Engineering is an interdisciplinary programme in chemical engineering and computer-based techniques for design, operation and management in process industries. Students acquire skills in managing, planning and steering production operations and technologies, processes and products. The programme focuses on the scientific aspects of designing and running chemical processes as integrated dynamic production systems.

Teaching applies theory to practice and the wide offering gives students the expertise to take on the varied challenges of the field. A major part of the programme is collaborative process automation and product management, which brings together students from different fields and offers them practical training in using process automation applications. Students have access to state-of-the-art laboratory equipment, in addition to quality, individual guidance by teachers and researchers with plenty of experience in the field.
