Started in the academic year 2006/2007.
Chemical and Biochemical Engineering Master goal is to develop in students a deep understanding of scientific, mathematical and engineering principles representing the foundations of technological processes through which several industry products are manufactured. For this purpose students receive a solid high education in several fields of scientific and technological innovation.
Students are welcomed into a center of excellence in Green Chemistry, a high scientific qualification environment with international recognition. The IBET, the largest Portuguese platform of university/industry collaboration in the field of biotechnology, is also a Masters partner.
The curriculum of the MSc has a broadband spectrum with a modular and flexible structure.
In the last two years, students complement, deepen and integrate the skills previously acquired in the areas of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering.
In the last semester students will trainee in a sector company or will realize a research project in a R&D center, national or European (SOCRATES / ERASMUS), leading to the dissertation.
The MSc in Chemical and Biochemical Engineering trains engineers with an international profile.
Chemical Industry provides 6% of European employment and her products make part of our everyday life. Biotechnology industry is a rapidly expanding, with a future based on innovation and qualification of human resources.
The main concern of these industries is the expected shortage of highly skilled engineers in a near future. Engineers of Chemical/Biochemical Engineering of FCT NOVA will find a European market very receptive to their qualifications.

Professor Ascensão Reis
The Department of Chemistry is a permanent organic unity of the NOVA School of Science and Technology, devoted to teaching, to scientific research and to provide services in areas of Chemistry, Biochemistry and Chemical Engineering. The Chemistry Department (DQ, founded in 1981, has recognized market implementation in education and employment, particularly so because of the novelty and specificity introduced by the course in Applied Chemistry with which teaching at the School of Chemistry began.More info
