The School of Chemical Engineering

Created in 1995, the Escola Tècnica Superior d’Enginyeria Química (ETSEQ) at Universitat Rovira i Virgili aims at becoming an international reference in chemical engineering education and research.

The ETSEQ is located in one of the most dynamic social and economic areas in Europe and it is destined to become one of the driving forces behind the development and progress of Catalonia at the beginning of the 21st century. The powerful petrochemical industry and an increasing concentration of services and sectors such as automotion, agrifood, etc. provide the ideal environment for the school, its students and its faculty and researchers.

The ETSEQ takes pride in its innovative teaching system, which is organized around yearly integrated projects whose complexity increases over the educational program. The projects challenge students to work in groups in order to tackle open problems, and develop the students’ cooperation, leadership, organization, and communication skills.
