School of Chemical Engineering
Catalyst of Change
We combine natural sciences and engineering in a unique way. We educate broad-minded experts for Finland's largest industrial sectors.
The studies and research at the Aalto University School of Chemical Engineering focus on forest products technologies, chemical engineering, industrial biotechnology, materials science and nanotechnology, metals and minerals processing and energy technology.
Get to know the School of Chemical Engineering
School of Chemical Engineering combines natural sciences and engineering to refine research results and put them into practice as sustainable innovations.
A scientist worthy of several Nobel Prizes
Today there is a lithium battery in almost everyone's pocket. However, there are still many challenges associated with their materials. This is evident to Maarit Karppinen who has collaborated with one of the scientists awarded with the Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
Departments and infrastructures
The research at the School of Chemical Engineering focuses on forest products technologies, chemical engineering, industrial biotechnology, materials science and nanotechnology, metals and minerals processing and energy technology. The school has two special research infrastructures: bioeconomy infrastructure that enables research from molecular level to biobased technology concepts, and raw materials research infrastructure, that supports the research of circular economy targeting to closed metallurgical and hydrometallurgical processes and inorganic energy materials.
To learn more about the impact we make, get to know our three departments and two infrastructures:
The Department of Bioproducts and Biosystems (Bio2) is at the forefront of forest products technologies and cutting-edge biotechnology.
The Department of Chemical and Metallurgical Engineering's expertise areas are chemical engineering, metals process industry, energy technologies, and new materials production.
The Department of Chemistry and Materials Science focuses on micro-, nano- and atomic scale engineering of compounds and materials. Our work in these areas encompasses synthesis, characterization and computational research.
Research Infrastructure at School of Chemical Engineering belong to either Bioeconomy RI or RAMI RI.
Collaborate with us
The School of Chemical Engineering carries out wide ranging and diverse forms of cooperation with industry. The school's most important corporate partners included Neste, UPM, Stora Enso, Valio, Fortum, Metsä Group, Outotec, Andritz and Kemira.
Working life after graduation
School of Chemical Engineering graduates are successful in finding jobs corresponding to their education. Most important knowledge and skills in current job are independency, analytical and systematic thinking skills and co-operation skills.
