Program Description

The course is specially designed for international and non DTU students within large scale chemical unit operations. With the intention of providing students with experiences as close as possible to practical industrial conditions and equipment in the chemical, biochemical and pharmaceutical industry, it covers theoretical knowledge in unit operations, heat and mass balances, general process and equipment technology, reaction engineering and kinetics, process control, P&I diagrams and simple chemical analytical methods and calculations. We wish to show the possibilities and limitations of the theory and achieve practical experience and improved understanding of the processes.
Over the course of four weeks, you will work in teams of two to perform exercises with reports in areas of a variety of fields of research. Each practical experiment will last approximately ½ -1 day and preparation of reports should take about 2 days each. In addition every team is expected to make an oral technical presentation of one of the pilot plant units with a group of fellow students. Also, every team will give an oral presentation on a non-technical subject with connection to Danish or Scandinavian culture (political, historical, social, art, etc.)

Where You Will Study

Since its founding in 1829, Technical University of Denmark (DTU) has been dedicated to developing and creating value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society. Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe. It continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increases and develops partnerships with industry and assignments accomplished by DTU’s public sector consultancy.



The Department of Chemical Engineering has approved this program to count toward degree requirements for Chemical Engineering students. You can expect to receive 6 UW credits for the program: 3 credits for CHEM E 437 and 3 credits for CHEM E 498. 



Housing is provided for you in single room dormitories in the Campus Village at NTU. Accommodations are included with the program fee. All rooms have a private bathroom and access to sport facilities and common recreational and study areas.


Program Expenses, Financial Aid & Scholarships

You will pay a program fee of EUR 3,200 (approximately USD $3,800) directly to DTU. This fee covers the cost of tuition, educational materials, excursions, and accommodations in single rooms with access to kitchen facilities. Additional expenses include meals, airfare, local transportation fees, international health insurance, and personal expenses. The UW Study Abroad Fee will be billed to your UW student account according to the regular UW tuition billing schedule.

Most types of financial aid can be applied to your study abroad experience. Please check with the Office of Student Financial Aid regarding eligibility. You can adjust your financial aid budget for the terms that you will spend abroad by completing a Revision Request for Additional Expenses form. You will need to attach a program budget, which may be requested by filling out a Budget Request Form.
