Chemical engineers are qualified to work in various sectors, including the chemical and petrochemical industries, pulp and paper, ceramics, and food production. They are involved in process and manufacturing operations, project management, development and enhancement of new processes and products, quality assurance, technical sales, industrial water treatment, management of industrial waste, funding and research activities, among others.

Aimed at qualifying graduates for these roles, UFSC Chemical Engineering Program created a broad ranging curriculum that is centered on the profession’s principles. In the first semester, core courses in Physics, Chemistry, Calculus, Mathematics and Introduction to Chemical Engineering are taught. Then, more specific courses are offered: Thermodynamics, Transport Phenomena, Reactor Calculation, Biochemical Engineering, Process Analysis and Simulation, Environmental Engineering, Chemical Industries, among others.

In the last semester, the student gets to learn the day-to-day practice of the profession through an internship in a company. In general, UFSC graduates are well positioned in the job market: most of our students are immediately hired after completing their studies.

Program Length:
10 semesters (5 years)
Classes may be held in the morning, afternoon and evening.
