Master’s (12 to 36 months) and Doctorate (24 to 60 months)

The graduate program in chemical engineering at Unicamp aims to prepare professionals who are highly qualified in their major areas to undertake activities related to research, teaching and scientific and technological development in the field of chemical engineering as a whole. The course is an interdisciplinary one and students carry out research to solve problems of interest to the industrial sector, thereby contributing to scientific development in chemical engineering both nationally and internationally. The graduate program offers courses leading to either a master’s degree (since 1980) or a doctoral degree (since 1989) and is structured around five major areas: materials science and technology; development of chemical processes; process engineering; chemical process systems and informatics; and development of biotechnological processes.
