Major subject – Natural Materials Technology
Development in the wood and paper chemistry and biomaterial industries is fast, and new forest-based products from wood and other plant materials are constantly being created. Students with Materials Technology as their major subject will learn about raw materials, processes and analytics related to natural fibre-based materials and products, such as paper and packaging. Your education will provide you with competence to work with the transition from fossil raw materials to biomaterials or with the sustainable production of chemicals and fuels. You will also gain insights into the development of new innovative biomaterials including, for example, printed electronics and wound healing products based on cellulose.
Studies in Process Chemistry are multifaceted and method-oriented, including both theoretical and practical elements. Your studies will provide you with extensive knowledge and, through elective courses, an opportunity to specialise in a number of different subjects. The study environment is innovative and international with close contacts to industry. You will very likely be doing your Master’s thesis in co-operation with a company.
