Institute of Process Engineering

Studying the engineering science of process engineering at the JKU.

Process engineering is an independent engineering science focusing on transforming materials by means of mechanical, chemical, and thermal processes. Process engineering is a discipline that transfers findings by natural scientists and, in regard to JKU chemists, into viable technical concepts. Process engineering, for example, can turn a chemical experiment into a process that can be used by industry and in production.

Interested? Choose to earn a Bachelor's or Master's degree in process engineering! Simply contact Univ.-Prof. Dr. Hlawitschka!

The Bachelor's degree program in process engineering at the JKU includes fundamental, base-knowledge methods in material conversion - both in classroom theory and hands-on, real-world practices.

The Master's degree program gives students an opportunity to specialize in process engineering and process technology, and learn how to design plants as well as carry out chemical apparatus engineering at processing plants 

By the way, our institute is abbreviated: IVT!
