Master en Ingeniería Química + 60 Créditos ECTS
The MSc program in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering offers advanced levels of chemical and biomolecular engineering courses so that the graduates can become confident and competent chemical engineers at a senior level or as leaders.
Applicants must possess a bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering or a related discipline with second-class honors or higher, or an equivalent qualification from a recognized university or tertiary institution.
To qualify for admission to the Master of Science (MSc) program in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (CBME), applicants should have an undergraduate Chemical Engineering related engineering degree or be technical professionals with relevant experience in the chemical engineering discipline. Fresh graduates who have good academic record in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering are also our targets.
This Master of Science (MSc) program in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (CBME) is designed for students who wish to acquire an in-depth understanding of a particular area of chemical and biomolecular engineering while strengthening their overall knowledge at an advanced level.
The Master of Science (MSc) program in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (CBME) program provides students with updated knowledge on products development, process and energy integration, waste minimization and treatment, material sciences, biomolecular science, and biochemical processes. This is a unique Master of Science (MSc) program that covers knowledge in areas of bioengineering / environment / nanotechnology, which are the three focal areas of HKUST.
The program not only offers advanced chemical and biomolecular engineering courses beyond undergraduate-level for students but also enables students to take several electives from other related programs.
Students of the Master of Science (MSc) program in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (CBME) are required to complete at least 30 credits of coursework, with at least 12 credits of foundation courses and 6 credits of elective courses. With effect from 2018/19 academic year, subject to the approval of the Program Director, students who do not possess a bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering will be required to take at least 15 credits of foundation courses.
Students shall take 10 3-credit taught courses or 8 to 9 taught courses plus one independent MSc project offered from the program. Each course listed below carries 3 credits except CBME6980. CBME 6980 carries 3 or 6 credits. Subject to the approval of the Program Director, students may take a maximum of 9 credits of non-CBME postgraduate courses as partial fulfillment of the program requirements.
