The graduate school MP2T in chemical engineering at the Department of Chemical Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark aims towards modernizing the foundation of the chemical engineering subject area to be based upon novel methods and knowledge within the molecular level perception of chemical products and processes. The graduate school will combine three interdisciplinary focus areas:
- Formulation of new products
- Methods to test products
- Process development
and use the gained knowledge to support the energy related, pharmaceutical, chemical, and biotech industries.
What Kinds of Projects are Offered
The graduate school offers a number of ambitious Ph.D. projects starting in 2003 and 2004. The Ph.D. projects have a three-years duration, and are all administrated according to the rules and regulations outlined by the Technical University of Denmark
(see Ph.d.-uddannelsen på DTU
The Ph.D. projects may be formulated within focus areas such as:
- Clean Combustion Technology
- Development and Production of Pharmaceuticals
- Enzyme Technology
- High-Temperature Industrial Processes
- Mathematical Modeling of Processes and Reactions
- Oil and Gas Technology
- Scientific Formulation of Chemical Products
which are just a few examples among others. If you have an idea to a project, feel free to ask, if your project can come into consideration.
Each Ph.D. project will be supervised by one or more experienced researchers, and are conducted in an environment that offers targeted and international orientated graduate courses, and has a considerable number of Ph.D. students in different programmes.
As part of the graduate school MP2T you will have an outstanding opportunity to follow a Ph.D. program that allows you to improve your proficiency in chemical engineering. While conducting your individual research project that will result in a Ph.D.-thesis, and international publications, patents etc., you will also be affiliated to the education of bachelor and master students in chemical engineering to improve your skills in communication of knowledge.
Who can Apply
If you already have or are about to receive a master degree in applied engineering, engineering or science such as chemistry, biotechnology, medicine, physics, mathematics, or something similar, you should have an adequate academic background. You must have superior academic qualifications, and you set high standards to your own work. You are willing to work with applied engineering science at the highest level in an international orientated environment, and you get socially involved with you fellow students, professors and other colleagues.
How to Apply
Your application must include a CV, a brief description of your educational background including your exam papers and finally a description of your interests in respect to scientific research.
