Bachelor program Process Engineering

Process engineering deals with the technology and processes of refining raw materials and transforming them into basic-products.  Every time a material has to be transformed and treated process engineers are needed.  Every year thousands of tons of chemical substances are being produced by the process plants.

Next to the basic knowledge in technology engineers need to be able to posses other qualifications. Working on a project one needs special skills and organization. Not only success of the technological level is important, but also the quality of presentation and communication are necessary for the results.

Process Engineers are allrounder – with a solid and practical training the bachelor course Process Engineering at the TH Georg Agricola prepares the graduates for their occupational future.
