Does a career in renewable energy appeal to you? Would you like to apply chemical engineering to the improvement of new green technologies such as green gas production and biobased polymers? Then the exchange programme Renewable Energy, Materials and Processing is the right choice for you!

About this minor

The programme Renewable Energy, Materials and Processing covers various aspects of renewable energy. The main focus is on biogas production, and together with your fellow students you will work on projects in this field. In the previous years, students worked on, for example, evaluating and optimising a Swill (restaurant waste) digester or on a biogas upgrading process based on a gas absorption in pressurised water. These projects are set up in cooperation with leading institutes and companies, which will give you a good insight into the work field. The project groups will be of mixed internationalities and backgrounds, mimicing the situation of a Engineering company working for a client.

During two theoretical modules focussed on Chemical Engineering you will learn competencies like development and consultancy that are directly applicable to your project. An overview of the different modules can be found below.
