Organisation


“Department of Chemical Engineering” is a part of the faculty of “Applied Sciences” at the “Delft University of Technology”. Through continuing education and research which means planned up-gradation of courses and development of research portfolio, this department has established a strong reputation with the industry and the scientific community. Several notable personalities have been associated with this faculty for instance Nobel prize winner “Jacobus Henricus van 't Hoff” and astronaut “Lodewijk van den Berg”. The current cadre includes people like “Jacob A. Moulijn” and “Freek Kapteijn”. Research and education is performed by 27 permanent scientific staff members, 28 support staff and about 114 temporary researchers (doctorates, post-doctorates etc.).

The Department of Chemical Engineering is composed of seven research groups specialising in different streams of study. More information on the faculty and its groups can be availed at this website .

There is no official ranking of this faculty but its status of academics is very much concurrent with the prevalent quality of the university in comparison with its peers all around the world.

Internship


Getting an internship is fairly easy for students at the Department of Chemical Engineering because of the faculty’s strong interactions with the industries and also its own in-house research facilities. Regular meetings with companies (like Shell, Unilever, Akzo-Nobel, DSM, Philips etc.) and faculty research groups familiarise students with the opportunities and most often there are several advertisements on various notice boards with detailed information.


Vocation


“Opportunities exist for those who seek for it”

The current chemical job market is welcoming to anybody with the required skills. There are also several research opportunities in the faculty. More information here: http://www.ddb.tudelft.nl/
