MSc in Biotechnology and Chemical Engineering

Aarhus University
Campus Full time September 2017 Denmark Aarhus

Developing and optimising chemical and biotechnological processes plays a key role in modern society. It is predicted that the industry of the future will be characterised by production that is environmentally correct and energy-efficient. [+]

MSc Programs in Chemistry. DEVELOPING THE PROCESSES OF THE FUTURE Developing and optimising chemical and biotechnological processes plays a key role in modern society. It is predicted that the industry of the future will be characterised by production that is environmentally correct and energy-efficient. In the first year of the Biotechnology and Chemical Engineering programme, learning is mainly based on lectures and theoretical exercises. The second year mainly consists of project work, which involves students working closely with external companies. Students who are hungry for more have the possibility of continuing with a PhD. On this path, the student adds three extra years to their studies, working more independently on solving concrete problems. This can also take the form of an industrial PhD in collaboration with a company. CHOOSING YOUR SPECIALISATION The focus of the degree programme is the development and optimisation of processes in the chemical and biotechnological industries and in the environmental sector. If you have an engineering background in chemistry and choose to pursue this specialisation at MSc level, you will be able to work with areas as diverse as food, polymer chemistry, and membrane and separation technology. If on the other hand your background is in biotechnology, you can pursue this specialisation to gain opportunities to work in areas such as developing enzymes and proteins for use in ‘green’ production, lipid technology, and medical biotechnology. Whether your background is in chemistry or biotechnology, you will also be able to specialise in environmental technology, leading to opportunities to work in areas such as odour-monitoring in farming and biogas production. PUTTING RESEARCH INTO PRACTICE Teaching at Aarhus University is greatly influenced by the research conducted here, as all the lecturers are active researchers. As an engineering student, you have excellent opportunities to work with researchers in the laboratory, or you can complete a project in collaboration with a private company. STUDENT LIFE The Aarhus University School of Engineering has a range of social spaces where you can meet other students outside class, and this is an excellent basis for social activities. There is also an engineering club for staff and students for networking with like-minded people. As in all departments, there is a popular Friday bar, and the Tågekammeret association organises celebrations and social events for all science and technology students. CAREERS As a graduate engineer in Chemistry and Biotechnology, you will be developing the processes of the future – processes that will ensure that chemical, biotechnological and environmental knowledge finds sustainable applications that can benefit society as a whole. The MSc programme is also monitored by representatives of chemical companies such as DuPont, Arla, Aarhus Karlshamn and Cheminova, all of which are interested in employing newly qualified graduate engineers in chemistry and biotechnology. “I work in a department where we develop and test enzymes for animal feed. DuPont sells enormous amounts of enzymes for animal feed all over the world. Our customers could be producers of feed for herds of pigs or flocks of chickens who add maize, soy or grain to their compound feeds. Customers are interested in having the products tested, partly because they want to save on feed costs, but also because they want to ensure animal welfare. If you add a little more soy, for example, you can save on expensive raw materials and – if the animals are not adversely affected – it will be an advantage for everyone.” SOLVEJ KNUDSEN MSc in Chemistry and Biotechnology Senior Research Associate, DuPont Industrial Biosciences [-]

MSc Programs in Chemistry. The Department of Chemistry offers a Master of Science degree with concentrations in the four traditional major areas of chemistry: analytical, inorganic, organic and physical. The program is designed, through advanced courses and individual research, to prepare the student for a career as a chemist or for continued study in a rigorous doctoral program. Program Admission Requirements To be eligible for admission to the program leading to an M.S. degree, a student must have: A bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university with an adequate undergraduate background for the advanced work in the chemistry department. This background must include a course in Physical Chemistry with laboratory requiring calculus as a prerequisite. At least two recommendation letters from individuals who can comment on the academic as well as personal qualifications of the applicant. Incoming students lacking certain prerequisites may, with departmental permission, make up these deficiencies. However, graduate credit will not be received for this coursework. Upon entering, some students may be asked to take departmental placement exams, the purpose of which is to determine the level of the incoming student’s preparedness for the graduate program. These exams, if administered, will be used to better advise students as to their specific course of study. Minimum Degree Requirements The chemistry master’s program offers students a broad, yet intensive, study of the four traditional major areas of chemistry: analytical, inorganic, organic, and physical. A graduate major must take at least one of the core courses listed in each of the areas. Additionally, each student must choose an area of study in conference with an advisor or research director. In this area, two core courses must be taken. Additional chemistry coursework may be chosen in any area. A minimum of 30 semester credits is required for the M.S. degree in chemistry. A maximum of nine credits can be included from CHEM 5950 (Research in Chemistry), CHEM 5960 (Thesis) and CHEM 5010 (Seminar) in the required semester credits. Seminar is required and must be related to the student’s research. CHEM 5450 does not count toward the required 30 credit hours. With the approval of the student’s advisor, up to 10 hours of credit may be in related fields. All graduate majors are encouraged to conduct original research and to complete a thesis in their area of study, under the direction of a graduate faculty member. The student’s research director should be chosen as soon as possible after admission to candidacy. Chemistry 5450 is designed to help new students to complete this process within the first semester of their studies. See “Admission to Candidacy” elsewhere in this catalog. All students are expected to attend departmental seminars regularly even if they are not formally enrolled for credit. The non-thesis option is not recommended for graduate students majoring in chemistry. With proper justification, the department chair may approve a non-thesis option which will require 33 credits of coursework, which may include a seminar topic of current interest. The topic is subject to the advisor’s approval. To assure that graduate students have adequately assimilated their knowledge at the master’s level, written comprehensive examinations are given in each of the four basic areas of chemistry. The examinations are taken after completion of the appropriate core courses. All majors must pass the comprehensive exam in their selected area of study. In addition, majors must pass comprehensive exams in all the other areas, except that these additional exams may be waived by achieving a grade of “B” or better in a core course within that given area. In the event that a student does not pass the comprehensive exam on the first attempt, the exam may be retaken as early as the next scheduled time with the approval of the student’s advisory committee. However, remedial coursework for the student may be required by the advisory committee before approval is given. Students are limited to two attempts of each comprehensive exam. Failure to pass an exam after two attempts will result in the student being ineligible to continue in the program. After successfully completing all other requirements for the master’s program, a final oral examination is administered to the student by the student’s advisory committee. The oral exam is the defense of the candidate’s thesis and is open to all interested faculty and students. Questions from the committee, while centering around the candidate’s thesis work, are not limited to the research involved, but may cover other related topics of chemistry that a student would be expected to encounter in a master’s program. Concentration Requirements The department offers core courses in each of the major areas of chemistry as listed below: Analytical: 3-6 Credit Hours CHEM 5210 - Advanced Analytical Chemistry I (3 credits) CHEM 5220 - Advanced Analytical Chemistry II (3 credits) Inorganic: 3-6 Credit Hours CHEM 5110 - Advanced Inorganic Chemistry I (3 credits) CHEM 5120 - Advanced Inorganic Chemistry II (3 credits) Organic: 3-6 Credit Hours CHEM 5510 - Advanced Organic Chemistry (3 credits) CHEM 5541 - Organic Reaction Mechanisms (3 credits) Physical: 3-6 Credit Hours CHEM 5710 - Chemical Thermodynamics (3 credits) CHEM 5741 - Chemical Kinetics (3 credits) CHEM 5743 - Quantum Chemistry (3 credits) Total: 15 Credit Hours Note: A student is required to take two core courses (6 credit hrs.) in the chosen area of concentration and at least one core course in each of the remaining three (3 credit hrs. each) for a total of 15 credit-hours.
