2. General presentation of the study programme

The modern society needs clean and efficient technologies for the transformation of energy; high performance materials for several applications including automotive, biomedical, electronic, environmental, aerospace, etc.; we also require efficient methods for the production of food and we expect to live in a clean environment, characterized by a sustainable use of the natural resources. Whatever the solutions for these needs they involve – in a way or in another - chemical transformations. Therefore the modern society needs Chemical Engineering, whose principles are at the basis of all transformation processes of matter and energy.

A chemical engineer is able to provide cutting edge solutions to meet the needs of society. Using his knowledge about chemistry, physics, mathematics and engineering he is able to describe the chemical and physical transformations, and to design processes from the molecular to the industrial scale.

The Chemical Engineering programme at Politecnico di Milano, structured on the Bachelor and the Master degrees, is not only focused on the chemical industry but instead is characterized by its wide-angle approach. In fact Chemical Engineering is involved in all manufacturing and processing technologies, and in the environmental protection as well. For this reason Chemical Engineering differs from other engineering degree programmes being Process Engineering in a broad sense, centered on the chemico-physical transformations of the materials. As examples of applications of Chemical Engineering we can recall the production of fuels from biomasses; the development of technologies for the removal/reutilization of carbon dioxide; the production of a chemical product from a series of reactants; the production of a component made of plastic material (from reactants to the polymer and then to the final product); the production of an electronic device; the treatment of a waste to reduce its pollution loading; the design of environmentally sustainable processes and many others.

The scale of these applications may range from the laboratory and the pilot plant to the large industrial production plants.

Therefore chemical engineers do not work only in chemical and petrochemical plants, but in all companies involving transformation processes such as in the food, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, environmental or energy sector. Chemical engineers also deals with issues related to environmental aspects and the sustainability of production, including effluent treatment technologies to reduce the concentration of pollutants.

In other words chemical engineer is a chemistry technologist, working in the transformation processes on all production scales, as opposed to the chemist or industrial chemist, who operates on smaller laboratory scales and in the field of chemical analysis methods.


3. Learning objectives

The degree programme in Chemical Engineering aims to form experts who can meet the technological challenges of modern society through their unique approach to work: Chemical Engineer sketch complex systems through a sequence of simpler operations for which a solution can be found. Then any process or chemical plant consisting of many interconnected units is at first analyzed by focusing the attention on each unit and then on the interconnections between these units. A preliminary study of the process is carried out in which the characteristics of the desired product are determined,  the sequence of steps necessary for the process are established and operating conditions of each step are investigated. At this point the chemical engineer is involved in the design of all equipments involved in the process. After designing the process and the units, the activities involving the management and the control of the plants are also addressed.

The Chemical Engineering programme is structured in the Bachelor (Laurea) and Master (Laurea magistrale) degrees in chemical engineering. In the Bachelor basis are given in disciplines like mathematics, physics, chemistry; in the traditional engineering subjects (electrical engineering, mechanics of solids, fluid-powered machinery, etc.) and, of course, on matters concerning chemical engineering (fundamentals of chemical engineering, unit operations, process design, chemical thermodynamics, etc.). During the Master programme the preparation is completed with the acquisition of advanced mathematical tools and advanced knowledge in various fields of Chemical Engineering (chemical reaction engineering, advances in unit operations and process design, environment protection and safety, biochemistry and biotechnology, etc..). The programme is very flexible, allowing students to focus their preparation in various areas of interests for their professional growth. The Master Thesis is also very important because the student can develop a first-person method of work and technical-scientific skills in the areas of today's most innovative and leading edge. The Master of Science Programme in Chemical Engineering is therefore very flexible and professionally cross-marked by a strong scientific knowledge base and application technology.

The programme adopts the teaching methods that satisfy the Dublin Descriptors adopted on a European level. Comprehension and the ability to make independent judgements will be assessed through written and oral examinations and individual and/or group papers. The ability to apply knowledge and understanding will be tested through the preparation of reports on participation in laboratory activities and in projects included in the curriculum.

Communication abilities are tested through periodic presentations of student work; learning abilities are verified during the individual activities designed to prepare for the final examination.

At the end of their studies, graduates have acquired the knowledge and the skills to design processes and equipments, and have in hands methodological and technical instruments to solve problems regarding for instance the development of traditional and innovative chemical processes, the production and transformation of materials, the management of components under normal or aggressive working conditions, the residual life of products.

The pre-approved plan of study N2F (Design Engineer) aims to train professionals able to define in quantitative terms, a schema of even highly complex processes with the corresponding sizing of the equipment. Characteristic elements of this professional are the ability to analyze, synthesize and optimize the logical and functional structure of the plant, to identify control strategies, and to develop an initial technical- economic analysis. This path always refers to a cultural approach attentive to the requirements of both security and sustainable development, in line with the stringent environmental requirements. The design engineer will thus be able to design and carry out installations of any complexity, but also is an expert in the technical-scientific coordination of work groups focusing on process development and plant design. In this proposed plan of study, courses specific to unit operations (Table UO, 15 CFUs) and processes (Table PROC, 10 CFUs) are chosen. This will also include more specific courses related to security (SIC Table, 10 CFUs).
