Welcome to the Master Programme in Chemical Engineering with specialisation in Pharmaceuticals or Material Sciences!
More and more companies in biotechnology as well as the constant need for material development make chemical technicians a sought-after profession. Those studying chemical engineering at Uppsala University can focus either on pharmaceuticals or on material sciences, both important areas for our country’s industrial future.
The education consists of a master’s degree in engineering combined with chemistry. Halfway through the training, a profiling is done towards either pharmaceuticals or materials. Both of these specializations are unique to the master’s degree in engineering at Uppsala University and they both hold a wide range of courses. The programme is for five years, but it is possible to retrieve a bachelor’s degree in technology after three years and go straight to industry, or supplement with any master’s degree. If you want to learn more about the education there is more information in the tabs above.
Focusing on skills
The education puts special emphasis on the ability to analyse, formulate and solve problems. The idea is to develop the ability to apply gained knowledge for a future professional job. In addition to theoretical knowledge, the education is about providing engineering skills to the students. This is done in connection with laboratory work, project work and communication training. The chemical engineering students participate in Uppsala’s “chemistry profile” initiative for the chemistry courses of the first semesters.
Highest rating nationally
In 2013, the University Chancellor’s Office (UKÄ) carried out an evaluation of all the country’s master’s programmes. The Master of Science in Chemical Engineering at Uppsala University received very good reviews.

About the section
In the warm cohesion of the K-section you will experience your best years in forest green overalls, with tons of opportunities to combine business with pleasure. In addition to the studies, you are offered the opportunity to engage with amazing people and participate in regular and varied sports activities. You also get the chance to experience the mythical Sodium event, compete for the trophy in the (K)beer-pong tournament and participate in the Halloween sitting. Go on a K-cruise across the Baltic Sea, or perhaps support the rest of the section in paintball war against the other programs? All this starts with the annual K-sitting, which takes place during the reception.
