Programs and graduate courses in chemical engineering
Graduate aim is to deepen and broaden basic knowledge in chemical engineering and to develop an increased ability to address the complex issues in a variety of areas of activity of the chemical engineer. Teaching and research faculty cover a broad range of topics such as: phenomena and flow of fluids, actions foundation in chemical engineering, separation processes, petroleum, development of operation and process control engineering, reactors, adsorption and catalysis, engineering polymers and plastics, and biomedical engineering – Chemical and Bio – medical, Bio – physics, environmental engineering, micro – structure and nanotechnology, particle systems, colloidal systems, complex fluids, space effects, processing and ceramic materials – lead, and the study of crystal growth processes in thin layers.
Training programs for Master’s studies and Doctoral studies in complex school and work independently. Studies linked to extensive research activities in areas referred to basic directions and directly applicable alike. The research topics aim to meet the needs of chemical industry, biochemical and micro-electronic, present and future, and research projects carried out by graduate trainees help instill industry approaches and advanced topics.
The population consists of paid “internal” (scholarship recipients) and “external” (workers usually outside the Technion for their livelihood). Most graduate students are recipients of scholarship. Scholarship recipients commit to devote full time to study, research and teaching. However, note that paid the first semester of their studies will be required not necessarily work in teaching. Student non-thesis track payable is not entitled to receive a scholarship.
There are three program tracks Magister training for the degree:
Master of Science in Chemical Engineering
Training course that includes research, project or thesis, is designed for graduates of degree four or triennial. Outstanding students it is possible to combine first and second degree and complete the two degrees within five years.
Master of Engineering in Chemical Engineering
Training course without submitting a research paper. The program is designed especially for industry, and placed more emphasis on technological and managerial occupations. The program’s goal is to allow engineers to expand industry knowledge in chemical engineering fundamental issues, relevant to their work in professional fields of industry and management issues. The program does not put emphasis on training in research methods and does not include submission of a thesis.
Master of Science
Training course that includes research. The program is intended for students without a background in chemical engineering who wish to study at the faculty research groups, without specific certification as an engineer in chemistry. Derives from this, this pathway does not require the completion of knowledge in chemical engineering.
Master of Science in Chemical Engineering (MSc)
The faculty will discuss candidates with undergraduate study average of 83 and above. The undergraduate study average is the base for discussion at the graduate study committee and is not a guaranty for acceptance. Candidates with average lower than the acceptance criteria (but not lower the 82) will be considered in unusual cases.
The success percentage in the undergraduate studies, relative ranking in the class and recommendations will be included in the graduate study committee decision. Candidates will be interviewed according to their academic background. Each case will be discusses separately.
Candidates which doesn’t meet the faculty acceptance criteria, but meet the graduate school acceptance criteria, can apply if they have obtained working experience over three years. Such requests will be considered according to the recommendations and their skills and professional achievements.
Every candidate will be required to find a supervisor for research, as a condition for admission. Candidates must submit at least two recommendations with their application forms, and a document attesting to their relative ranking within their class.
Graduate candidates track four – year not in chemical engineering subjects will be complete as needed. Track graduate candidates three – year, student status will be complementary and will be charged at 20 completion point, undergraduate subjects. List of professions will determine each student individually considering previous studies background. Students will be able to go into orbit after they resilience required to complete as determined by the Graduate Studies Committee. Candidates who have been admitted to Master of Science degree in chemical engineering, but meet the admission of the Graduate School, can apply after three years of professional work, and their request will be considered in light of the recommendations on qualifications and professional achievements.
The first graduate students can join the program that grants bachelor’s degree and Master of the past five years, if they are average at least 90 and left them less than 10 points to complete the first degree. Choosing a research topic in this program will do until the end of undergraduate studies.
Every student in this program will gain a total of 36 credits consisting of 16 points and graduate subjects and 20 credits for thesis or project engineering.
The student in this program learn at least seven subjects *, of which at least four courses offered by the Faculty of Chemical Engineering, including three compulsory subjects: subject “Mathematical Methods in Chemical Engineering” (058,177), it must be learned during the first year of school, and two subjects from the core. Aggregate balance is provided by the study subjects in other faculties, with the approval of the supervisor.
Student will be charged an experimental research paper route or theoretical. In special cases, a student “external” can choose to track engineering project. Research goal is to train students in research methods, and engineering project goal is to train the student in engineering design methods. All worthwhile seminar lecture to lecture summarizes the research work.
* Does not include trade “Seminar in Chemical Engineering” (058176)
Master of Engineering in Chemical Engineering (ME)
The route is open to qualified degree in chemical engineering BSc an average of at least 80. The candidates undergo a personal interview designed to meet the level of knowledge in chemical engineering graduate study. Candidates with a lower average (but in any case higher than 75) may be subject to professional experience. track is also open to qualified degree (BSc) in Chemical Engineering not, that meet the Graduate School. Such candidates will be required to study courses usually complete.
Every candidate to submit two recommendations, at least with the submission of registration forms to school. Candidates at their undergraduate study of the rating procedure is grown according to their achievements, registration forms will be required to submit a document detailing the location hierarchy.
Continue training for a Ph.D., after receiving the degree of Master of Engineering, will be allowed only in exceptional cases, and after the student demonstrate the ability to study in the “training that the title” as determined by the Graduate Studies Committee.

There are alternative training options, less binding, in the “advanced studies” or in school “No title”. Study “No title” may be relevant for Master degree students graduate faculty committee wants to test their ability to enroll in the faculty and Ph.D. candidates who have completed a master’s degree without a thesis.
Doctoral degree (PhD)
This program particularly pronounced within dissertation independence further training of teaching courses paid by deepening and expanding knowledge in front of chemical engineering.
Ph.D. training program has three tracks:
Direct route is described Master PhD
A special course to Dr. BA
Students will be making on the basis of achievements in previous studies, letters of recommendation and personal interviews to three faculty members (separately). The purpose of the interviews is to verify the compliance of the candidate for doctoral studies, control of fundamental issues, the ability to synthesis of separate issues, a problem or research topic and independence of thought. This does not mean in terms of knowledge including. Articulated the problems to be discussed in an interview in person by interviewers.
Individual admission terms
Admission is an average 85 degree Magister. Photograph of a Master’s degree pays doctoral faculty will generally be accepted only after the candidate has filled the demand for a lecture on the work of its Magister.
Graduates of non-thesis Master’s course (ME) may be admitted to Ph.D. only in exceptional cases, and after proving their ability to study in the “training that degree,” as determined by the Graduate Studies Committee.
The main requirements are a Ph.D. study:
- A) studying courses deepen the basic knowledge in chemical engineering and basic knowledge needed to complete the research, usually consisting of 10 credits (four courses at least, not including the trade “Seminar in Chemical Engineering”)
Other formal requirements may be added after examining candidates recommended by the board of examiners.
Deviation from the program facilitator who wants to submit a proposed detailed proposal a detailed curriculum for the student, before the candidacy examination.
B) Completing original research work at a proper level. The research will usually take place within the faculty. In exceptional cases when the student doesn’t work within the faculty for the entire study period, there is a minimum stay requirement of one year.
The student must submit a research proposal and pass the candidacy exam accordance to the Graduate School protocol (see section 36 of the Regulations). Year after the candidacy examination the student will present a seminar on small-scale study that describes the way and the results obtained up to that time. Usually, this means short internal seminar open to faculty members and graduate students in the Faculty.
Direct route from Master to PhD
Individual admission terms
Master’s Degree Students (average of at least 90 fields of study), may, with the consent of the facilitator, the recommendation of the Graduate Studies Committee and the approval of the Graduate School, through direct Ph.D. track.
