Chemical engineering

Chemical engineers: develop clean, safe and sustainable products,methods, processes and systems!

Objectives

CFD et phénomènes de transfert

The Toulouse INP-ENSIACET “Chemical Engineering” major aims to train and certify engineers whose skills span from the fundamentals of chemical reactions, design and management of the related process to  shaping and packaging. The engineering curriculum of this major has a double target. Firstly, its objective is to give theoretical knowledge as well as working methods to approach the specificities of a technique. Secondly, it gives the necessary knowledge to be able to broaden engineers' responsibilities.

Features

Societal impact

Contribution to society

The Chemical Engineering subjects give the knowledge to optimize existing processes and to develop new synthesis pathways, new solvents and processes that are more eco-aware while taking into account the societal expectations.

Examples of contributions to society:

  • CO2 storage solutions
  • water treatment devices
  • reduction of the level of pollutant emissions: the catalytic converter
