If you are finishing your master in chemical engineering and you’re asking yourself where to do your work experience, we’ll help you.

Because the basis of training must be theoretical and practical: for this reason in ETSEQ we always make it possible that the student can go to the best companies for chemical engineers.

Now that you know our chemical engineering masters programmes, maybe you have considered taking a step further and carrying out a work experience exchange in a company where you can put into practice the knowledge that you obtained during your years of training. Apart from the work experience, you will also have to do your thesis. We will take it into account when you decide to look for your company.

It’s for this reason that, thanks to our situation as a university, we have been able to create  links with the most important chemical engineering companies in the south of Europe, which allows us to collaborate with them and offer you a pack of thesis and company work experience.

You will be asking yourself: what is the pack of company work experience and master’s final project?

ETSEQ offers the option of carrying out external work experience for six months in one of the companies that we will introduce below, and which are the leading chemical engineering companies in Europe. You will work on industrial projects and, apart from that, you will be able to carry out your master’s final project.
