The fascinating thing about chemical engineering is that you’re involved in developing new products but you’re also thinking about the production process. A Chemical engineer is concerned with the entire development of a new product or processes, from A to Z. This means you will learn much more than just the how and why of chemical reactions. Chemical engineers at the University of Groningen, for example, have developed a highly efficient plastic solar cell and are now getting it ready for large-scale production. They are also working on the efficient extraction of biodiesel from the Indonesian jatropha plant and special rubbers for high-tech applications in clothing and footwear.The Dutch Education Guide hasranked Chemical Engineering in Groningen the number 1 of all similar programs in the Netherlands. Groningen is the only University where you can study both Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. If you find it hard to choose between a Bachelor’s degree programme in chemistry or in chemical engineering, Groningen is the place to be. The first year of both programmes is identical so you don’t have to make a definite choice until your second year. It’s very likely that you don’t yet know which specialisation to choose, so you won’t have to decide until the second year.
