It is an intrinsic part of life and you will find it in everything you see, experience or feel around and within yourself. Chemistry connects. Chemistry is a natural science that develops all the time and connects different fields and people. Chemistry is the most creative field on earth. How will we meet the demand of food, natural resources and energy for the growing population on earth? Clean water, renewable fuel and pharmaceuticals are chemistry.

The degree programme in Environmental Chemistry and Technology provides the student with a wide knowledge in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. You will get a holistic view on life-cycle thinking and material flows in industrial planning and other fields of society.


In your studies you will learn how plants should be planned, automatized and run safely for the environment - minimize environmental impact and methods of cleaning exhaust gases and wastewater as how to plan clean water plants.

Kokkola has the largest concentration of inorganic chemical industries in the northern countries, which gives the students an excellent ground for industrial careers. In the 21st century, Kokkola Industrial Park (KIP) and the whole of Kokkola have developed into a major chemical cluster. In the past five years, 413 million euros have been invested in the KIP area, employing more than 2,200 people. All in all, enterprises in the KIP area account for 5.3 per cent of the total exports of the Finnish chemical and metal industry. The region’s global corporations, leaders in their respective fields, have fine-tuned their process expertise to be at the top of the world in Kokkola.

The graduated engineers usually start their careers as research or development engineers in industrial projects. Some engineers start in production, purchase or sales tasks. National and local environmental authorities need engineers with knowledge in environmental questions. Some of our graduates end up working as teachers in vocational schools.

In the specialization option Environmental Chemistry and Technology the students will gain education in environmental issues like recycling of materials, production of energy, handling of wastewater, cleaning of air, planning of water plants, environmental management and process planning. The unique Chemplant pilot plant is used for learning of new techniques.

Our other specialization option is New and Traditional Fuel Production where the students learn about traditional oil refineries, but also about new methods for making renewable biofuels.
