Kurzportrait

The education in the specialization process systems engineering enables the students to work on the design and operation of complex chemical and biochemical production systems using mathematical models and modern computer tools for simulation and optimization. This comprises advanced control and production scheduling methods and the analysis and description of experimental data. Process Systems Engineering has a great demand in the market as it enables a chemical engineer to acquire all the knowledge necessary not just for designing a chemical plant but also for its simulation and optimization.

It is a well-planned course in which students will not be studying the core chemical engineering subjects like thermodynamics, mass transfer or heat transfer etc. once again. Instead students will have the opportunity to learn subjects like Process Control, Industrial Automation etc. which will enable them to be at par with the electronics involved in a chemical plant. Also, students will have the opportunity to learn to operate softwares like Aspen, GProms etc.

Students learn in a truly in­ter­na­tio­nal class and work together with fellows from other countries, cultures and backgrounds. Joint work in tutorials, labs and project groups will broaden the horizon and enable to interact respectfully in in­ter­na­tio­nal teams and organisations.

Fähigkeiten und Kenntnisse

The programme is intended for excellent students having a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering or its equivalent.

Since the Process Systems Engineering stream of the Master's programme is exclusively taught in English, in­ter­na­tio­nal applicants must provide a Graduate Record Examination (GRE) certificate. (Institution Code: 8523, Department Code: 1001) Detailed regulations are to be found in the Admission Regulations. Although not demanded by the de­part­ment of biochemical and chemical engineering of TU Dort­mund, TOEFL/IELTS will mostly be asked by the embassies during the visa process. In addition knowledge of German is appreciated although also not part of the application.

Admission is based on the overall academic performance, recommendation letters, GRE scores, Statement of Purpose and further qualifications. For the evaluation bachelor courses dealing with process control systems, logics, simulation, mathematical models etc. will be weighted more than others.

The programme can be started only after an industrial internship of 12 weeks which has to be equal to the practical training of the Bachelor’s degree programmes in chemical or biochemical engineering at the Technische Uni­ver­si­tät Dort­mund. The internship office of the Faculty Biochemical und Chemical Engineering shall decide on the equivalence.

Students having passed a bachelor's programme of less than 7 semesters or a bachelor programme outside of Europe (other than ECTS programmes) start the programme with an obligatory preparatory semester (first semester) in winter which starts in October. Thus the course lasts two years. The preparatory semester is recommended also for ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) bachelors. However, these students could also start the programme in summer term (April).

Only after the successful completion of the preparatory semester by the end of the following summer semester students are admitted to further Master's studies in the next semesters.

Berufs- und Tätigkeitsfelder

Chemical engineering represents the branch of the engineering sciences which is concerned with the chemical conversion of materials and the related technical processes and equipment. Chemical engineers find employment in chemical and process technology, in food processing and beverages industries, in pharmaceutical industry, oil industry, automotive industry, in the energy sector and in the ever-increasing environmental sector. Increasingly complicated plant and advancing automation lead to a continual need for graduates in chemical engineering. Chemical engineers are active in the fields of research and development, plant design, plant construction, plant operation, production, sales and service, in the official approval and monitoring of plant and processes.

Chemical engineers participate in major industrial corporations, small and medium-sized enterprises and the civil service. Due to a broadly based training, chemical engineers very well match the needs of the modern job market. Professional activity is not restricted to the chemical industry, but extends to many associated industries. The Department of Biochemical and Chemical Engineering (BCI) in Dort­mund and its degrees enjoy a high reputation in German industry, resulting in a wide range of industrial placements and an excellent employment situation.

Anfahrt & Lageplan

Der Campus der TU Dort­mund liegt in der Nähe des Autobahnkreuzes Dort­mund West, wo die Sauerlandlinie A45 den Ruhrschnellweg B1/A40 kreuzt. Die Abfahrt Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen auf der A45 führt zum Campus Süd, die Abfahrt Dort­mund-Dorstfeld auf der A40 zum Campus-Nord. An beiden Ausfahrten ist die Uni­ver­si­tät ausgeschildert.
Für E-Autos gibt es eine Ladesäule am Campus Nord, Vogelpothsweg.

Direkt auf dem Campus Nord befindet sich die S-Bahn-Station „Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät“. Von dort fährt die S-Bahn-Linie S1 im 20- oder 30-Minuten-Takt zum Hauptbahnhof Dort­mund und in der Gegenrichtung zum Hauptbahnhof Düsseldorf über Bochum, Essen und Duisburg. Außerdem ist die Uni­ver­si­tät mit den Buslinien 445, 447 und 462 zu erreichen. Eine Fahrplanauskunft findet sich auf der Homepage des Verkehrsverbundes Rhein-Ruhr, außerdem bieten die DSW21 einen interaktiven Liniennetzplan an.
 

Zu den Wahrzeichen der TU Dort­mund gehört die H-Bahn. Linie 1 verkehrt im 10-Minuten-Takt zwischen Dort­mund Eichlinghofen und dem Technologiezentrum über Campus Süd und Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S, Linie 2 pendelt im 5-Minuten-Takt zwischen Campus Nord und Campus Süd. Diese Strecke legt sie in zwei Minuten zurück.

Vom Flughafen Dort­mund aus gelangt man mit dem AirportExpress innerhalb von gut 20 Minuten zum Dort­mun­der Hauptbahnhof und von dort mit der S-Bahn zur Uni­ver­si­tät. Ein größeres Angebot an inter­natio­nalen Flugverbindungen bietet der etwa 60 Kilometer entfernte Flughafen Düsseldorf, der direkt mit der S-Bahn vom Bahnhof der Uni­ver­si­tät zu erreichen ist.

Die Ein­rich­tun­gen der TU Dort­mund verteilen sich auf den größeren Campus Nord und den kleineren Campus Süd. Zudem befinden sich einige Bereiche der Hoch­schu­le im angrenzenden Technologiepark. Genauere In­for­ma­ti­onen können Sie den Lageplänen entnehmen.
