It's useful to know

The bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering will teach you the bases of industrial technical engineering, especially in the branch of industrial chemistry. You will learn how to design, develop and analyse:

  • Chemical processes and environmental management.
  • Monitoring processes.
  • Designing chemical plants.

At the same time, you will acquire the scientific and mathematical knowledge to understand the technical and scientific literature to carry out research and development (R+D+I) in any of these areas, as well as to interpret reports drafted by other specialist engineers. This multidisciplinary ability will allow you to lead cross-disciplinary working parties and work as a manager in technology companies.

The graduate's training in Chemical Engineering is naturally complemented with the Master in Industrial Engineering, for the purposes of acquiring the skills of an industrial engineer, a profession with a highly valued tradition, spanning back over 150 years, in national and international companies.

“There’s nothing at other Catalan and Spanish universities you won’t already find at the University of Girona, and the Polytechnic School in particular. We’ve got top-class facilities and much more personalised assistance than the other universities. That means getting to know the students better and therefore improved and optimised educational quality.”
