Abstract

• Technology and engineering of fine chemicals and specialty materials • Process engineering in green chemical technologies. In response to the mounting requests and the growing demand for professionals prepared to operate in a global environment, on October 1 st , 2002 the Faculty of Chemistry of Silesian University of Technology launched a new Macrofaculty Course of Studies-Industrial and Engineering Chemistry lectured in English. In concept this course aims to form chemical engineers of a novel type, with integrated, solid knowledge of fundamentals of the two principal lines of studies, i.e. Chemical and Process Engineering and Chemical Technology, and hence capable to tackle diverse practical problems of modern chemical technologies and process engineering, well familiar with computers and informatics and open to new developments and innovations. To meet this objective the curricula of the two principal lines of studies were carefully scrutinized to create the one that includes courses of organic, inorganic, analytical and physical chemistry, fluid mechanics, process kinetics, unit operations, reaction and reactors engineering, industrial catalysis, bioprocess engineering and industrial equipment design. Extensive courses of economics and management are also envisaged as well as classes of English or other modern languages to improve communication skills. By the end of the third year the students will choose one of the specjalizations: • Technology and engineering of fine chemicals and specialty materials • Process engineering in green chemical technologies. In both specjalizations the compulsory core courses are supplemented with a number of optional courses selected according to individual interests. Alumnus of both specializations acquire skills needed to solve practical problems from the realms of chemical technology, process engineering and chemistry of materials and are well prepared to work in industrial, research and marketing environments. Alumnus of Macrofaculty is very well prepared to join the work market in large and small enterprises thanks to the high professional qualifications, creativity, openness to new ideas and skills in team work.
