Administrative contact: Planning Officer Heli Järvelä
Extent: 20-25 cr
Study objectives: In the Chemical engineering minor students get an insight to a transition from an oil-based to a sustainable society. Utilizing natural resources is vital for a sustainable way of living and will be crucial for future economic growth, as it will provide also new business opportunities.
The minor starts with basics in chemistry, and based on student’s interests, continues by getting familiar to biosciences, biomaterials, biomaterial processing, or by deepening the knowledge in basic chemistry.
Target Group: All Aalto students, with sufficient prerequisite knowledge. Not for Chemical Engineering major students or for students of the Bachelor's Programme in Chemical Technology (ei Kemian tekniikan kandidaattiohjelman opiskelijoille). MSc students should check with their own study programme that this minor can be included in the degree.
Application process: With an email to the administrative contact before 1.9. Study plan should be attached to the application.
Quotas and restrictions: Max 10 students per year.
