About this program

Chemical and Biochemical Engineering

BQBE combines both a solid background in Chemical Engineering and Biological Engineering, giving it a differentiating and comprehensive character, allowing its graduates an easy integration in various sectors of industrial activity and services.

In addition to providing excellent preparation in the fundamental sciences, BQBE cross-integrated training in chemical and biological processes will be highly advantageous to meet the enormous challenges of the technological transition to a sustainable economy. The existence of an integrating project and the execution of short internships in industrial environment facilitate the integration into the labor market at the national and international level.

BQBE graduates can also complement their training by directly entering the master's degree in BQBE[IC1] or the like, at the national level or within the European Union.
