Online application for MSc in Chemical and Materials Engineering program will be opened on April 05, 2018
Application deadline: June 01, 2018.
The Master of Science in Chemical and Materials Engineering (MSc-ChME) degree program is a is a specialized degree program offered by the School of Engineering (SEng) at Nazarbayev University (NU). Students are required to complete 120 ECTS credits, in 4 semesters, which satisfies the requirements stipulated by the Bologna Process and the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) for Master’s Degrees. The program is research oriented and it is designed to provide the skills required to solve advanced technical problems in chemical and materials engineering through a combination of thesis research and advanced coursework.
All students in the MSc-ChME program are required to complete five advanced core courses in key fundamental chemical and materials engineering areas such as Applied Mathematics, Transport Phenomena, Chemical Reaction Engineering, Materials Characterization and Materials Processing. Three more core courses, Research Methods and Ethics, Research Seminar and Technical Communication, will be offered to provide students with the general knowledge that is necessary for them to design or present their research in an effective way. Students will also be able to select four elective courses, from a list of possible options, based on their research interests. Students will be enrolled in MSc Thesis I and MSc Thesis II courses in the third and fourth semesters to carry out an independent research. A wide variety of research topics will be offered by the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering in areas as diverse as energy generation, conversion and storage; environmental protection, remediation and resource efficiency; process design and simulation; composite functional materials etc. Through its research-intensive nature, the program aims at providing its graduates with the skills required for engineering innovation, to translate research into production, and to foster the future technological development in the country.
On successful completion of the program graduates will be able to:
