Bachelor's Degree Programme Chemical and Process Engineering

Chemical and process engineering is a scientific field that deals with conversions that occur through mechanical, thermal or chemical processes. In practice, this means that without chemical and process engineering, no modern products could exist. In the interdisciplinary bachelor’s programme Chemical and Process Engineering at TU Graz, you will receive a broad basic education in the natural and engineering sciences.


  • You acquire basic knowledge in the fields of mathematics, mechanics, chemistry, physics and biotechnology.
  • You learn the fundamentals of chemical and process engineering, for example, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, heat transfer and mass and energy balances.
  • You deepen you knowledge of chemical and process engineering. Contents include: thermal separation processes, particle processing technology, reaction technology, paper-, pulp- and fiber technology and mass transfer.
  • You become familiar with the plant and process technologies, for example, with process simulation and electrical, measurement and control technologies.
  • You learn to present results effectively through reports and presentations.
  • Basically, you are the all-rounder in the field of engineering sciences.
