The KIT Department of Chemical and Process Engineering has 27 professorships and is one of the most renowned institutions in its discipline worldwide. Currently, about 1,600 students are enrolled in the consecutive bachelor’s and master’s programs Chemical and Process Engineering (CIW/VT) and Bioengineering (BIW). About 40% of the students are female.
In cooperation with the KIT Departments of Chemistry and Biosciences, Physics, Mathematics, and Mechanical Engineering, the KIT Department of Chemical and Process Engineering offers a sound education in natural sciences and engineering. The Department is also involved in teacher training in the study program “Naturwissenschaft und Technik“ (Natural Science and Technology) as well as in the EIT InnoEnergy master program Energy Technologies. All study programs have been successfully accredited and fully comply with the requirements of TU9 and the umbrella organizations ProcessNet and VDI. The study programs regularly receive the FTMV seal of quality. In rankings, the study programs of the KIT Department of Chemical and Process Engineering repeatedly obtain excellent positions.
Successfully certified - FTMV seal of quality
The Faculty Association of Mechanical and Process Engineering awards the FTMV e.V. seal of quality to faculties / departments of mechanical and process engineering for meeting quality requirements in teaching, research and organisation.
Once again, the KIT Department of Chemical and Process Engineering receives the FTMV seal of quality after a voluntary evaluation process for quality assurance, which certifies high quality in research, teaching and organisation. For this purpose, extensive data from research, teaching and administration are collected every year, including for example the number and quality of publications, third-party funding totals, number of doctorates or gender-related issues.
