Engineers in chemistry: be innovative actors of sustainable and responsible chemistry!

ENSIACET Engineers in chemistry develop strategies to synthesize complex molecules with different functional properties, which can be obtained from synthetic reactants or derived from renewable resources. They also master analytical tools to characterize molecules and target products. Working on interdisciplinary projects in a team means their approach integrates upstream economic requirements and environmental impacts for the choice of chemical processes.

The Toulouse INP-ENSIACET “Engineering in chemistry” major aims to train and certify skilled engineers for the synthesis, analysis, characterization and industrial implementation of complex molecules and target products in the context of sustainable and responsible chemistry. This engineering curriculum develops knowledge, skills and work best practices to address any technical concerns and to assume different responsibilities.

  • Research and development of new efficient and reliable products and processes which respect human health and the environment.
  • Mastery of methods and analytical tools to follow reactions, study product  properties and estimate their environmental impact.
  • Understanding of matter behaviour (how it creates and transforms itself).
  • Experience in creating new molecules and materials with innovating properties.
  • Ability to take up challenges to fight against pollution, create new medicines and develop new energy sources.


  • Analyse and characterize the functional properties of products and assess their environmental impact  (Life Cycle Analysis, Carbon footprint and eco-toxicity).
  • Create and develop synthesis strategies to meet the demands of high efficiency and reaction selectivity in the context of sustainable and responsible chemistry.
  • Master analytical tools applied to the separation, identification, characterisation and quantification of molecules or target products (fields of synthesis and process).
  • Take into account demands related to the fabrication process at the beginning of the approach:
    • choose the process,
    • recover and use by-products,
    • risks control and estimation.
