Masdar to launch Master's degree
Institute of science and tech announces degree in chemical engineering
Masdar Institute of Science and Technology has announced the launch of a Master’s degree programme in Chemical Engineering that will be available to its next intake of students in September 2011.
The new program will help establish core capabilities to support regional and global industries in their efforts to become more efficient and sustainable.
The programme will see a focus on building capabilities in carbon capture and sequestration (CCS), a method of mitigating the environmental impact of chemical industrial process emissions and fossil fuel combustion.
The fields of energy, environment and manufacturing that require expertise in chemical engineering-related fields are also important in the programme.
Dr. Marwan Khraisheh, Dean of Engineering at Masdar Institute, said: “The launch of a new Master’s program demonstrates the ambition and continued growth of Masdar Institute."
"Chemical engineering has an important place in the development of clean technology solutions, and Masdar Institute hopes to supply local, regional and international businesses with a talented pool of chemical engineers that will help them become more efficient and deploy sustainable technologies and practices.”
