TUM Asia aims to groom future leaders in selected areas of technology. Specifically, the 2-year full-time Master of Science in Industrial Chemistry will be an enabling postgraduate course for specialist engineers for the pharmaceutical, as well as the fine and specialty chemical industries. The degree will be jointly awarded by Technische Universität München (TUM) and the National University of Singapore (NUS). According to several independent rankings, the Faculty of Chemistry of TUM represents one of the leading in Germany in terms of both research and education with more than 50 professors and their research groups covering diverse fields in modern chemistry.
The master program offers selected facets of chemistry, it combines parts of the classic inorganic and polymer chemistry with chemical engineering subject. Due to the complexity and diversity of industrial chemistry three major specialization catalysis and petrochemistry, building and material science, and interdisciplinary combination are offered. The three major specialisations, which are complementary and require similar skills, will be intensively taught separately to those who choose them, in the latter part of the course. The master programme will provide graduates with the necessary knowledge and skills to successfully master the challenges faced in the area of chemistry, chemical engineering and construction chemistry. It will show methods on how to guaranty affordable and sustainable processes in the chemical industry by using the available resources as efficient as possible.
