Entry requirements

The Process Engineering master's programme follows on from the bachelor's programme Process Engineering at TU Wien, however the course can also be adapted for graduates of a range of other related bachelor's programmes.

Structure of the course

It is possible to choose between the following two areas of focus during the master's programme Process Engineering:

  • Plant and System Engineering
  • Chemical Engineering

In the related optional modules, it is possible to specialise further in a particular subject of choice. In this regard, the following optional subjects have been established:

  • Design and Simulation of Chemical Engineering Systems
  • Engineering Science
  • Fuel and Energy Technology
  • Design and Simulation of Energy Systems
  • Environment and Resources
  • Material Technology
  • Chemical Technologies and Biochemical Engineering

As the master's programme Process Engineering is an interfaculty course, optional and compulsory modules from the master's programmes Mechanical Engineering, Business Engineering/Mechanical Engineering and master's programme Technical Chemistry can also be chosen as related optional modules to a limited extent.

The compulsory master's thesis is another opportunity to further specialise in a particular area.

Thanks to the variety of research areas represented at TU Wien, it is possible to take the individual interests of the students into account and to prepare effectively for the future role.

Involvement in interesting research projects is a standard element of the master’s programme Process Engineering. The laboratories and pilot plant are well equipped with test and demonstration equipment. Cooperation with industry creates outstanding career prospects with above-average earning opportunities.

Study abroad and work placements

A well-established international network of universities is available. Of course, completed courses count towards your degree. Students can also go on advanced work placements at industrial establishments after prior consultation.
