Chemical Engineering and Materials Science

The main challenge faced by engineers in chemical engineering and materials science is understanding how industry works and ensuring its evolution to better meet societal and environmental needs, in both an ethical way and in an international context. These engineers must specialise in their subject in the broadest sense of the term, by mastering physical, chemical and mechanical transformations, as well as associated energy exchanges, and understanding and implementing phenomena. Students use their newly acquired skills to develop new products and processes, and to adapt existing processes. They will have to address challenges sustainably and securely, promote circular economy,  consider the product’s lifecycle in the design stage, and reduce environmental impacts and energy footprint.
Through Research & Development, and thanks to their newly acquired skills, students will be able to take responsibility for all stages of production, from the design to the marketing, including engineering, quality control, safety and environmental management and the operation of manufacturing units.
