When studying Chemical Engineering at Karlstad University you can choose to specialize in Pulp, Paper, Surface Treatment and Graphic Technology.
Chemical Engineering 300 ECTS
After this programme, with the major Pulp, Paper, Surface Treatment and Graphic Technology, you can for example work with development of new products and processes. Your working place may be a producing plant or a supplyer to the pulp and paper industry. You also have a substantial knowledge in energy and environmental technology that is valuable for the industry and public sector.
Chemical Engineering 180 ECTS
In this programme you also have the option to specialize in Pulp, Paper, Surface Treatment and Graphic Technology. After this education it is likely that you will work more hands-on than after the longer programme, but the labour market is partly quite similar for both engineer types.
The Master programme in Chemical Engineering is also based on Pulp, Paper, Surface Treatment and Graphic Technology. As a Master of Chemical Engineering you can be in charge of process and production in the paper and pulp industry and similar industries, such as the process or power industry. You can work process and product development, or be responsible for issues of the environment, cycles, and recycling in the public or private sector. You will have a solid foundation in technology, natural sciences, and mathematics, as well as the ability to cooperate and communicate. Your competencies will be of use in many technical areas, especially where creativity, leadership, and a holistic view are also required.
The aim of the doctoral education is to give a deepend theoretical and experimental knowledge within the subject, and to develop scientific creativity, reflection and critical thinking. The PhD student shall also develop an ability to independent scientific work with project planning and spreading of information in scientific and industrial articles and presentations. The education leads to a licentiate and/or a doctoral degree.
The work often has a direct link to the industrial application, which means that the research has an active support from industrial partners.
