Welcome to the Department of Chemical Engineering

The Department of Chemical Engineering (DCE) of the Engineering  School of the University of Patras was established in 1977. The mission of DCE is to produce chemical engineers educated in research, development and optimization of methods for production of industrial products, in materials technology, in environmental protection and in energy production.
 
DCE follows the modern trends and international dynamics of the science of chemical engineering, which pioneers in areas such as biotechnology and biological engineering, nanotechnology and renewable and alternative energy forms, being a center of excellence in several of these areas.

Education and research in DCE are carried out according to international quality standards and have resulted in numerous distinctions of the Department, faculty and alumni who have proven able to meet successfully in the highly competitive Greek, European and international environment.


The partnership of three laboratories of our department led to an inside back cover article publication of the Nanoscale magazine (IF 7.23). The laboratory of Polymers led by professor Constantinos Tsitsilianis with the collaboration of the laboratory of Statistical Thermodynamics and Macromolecules (prof. Vlasis Mavrantzas) and the laboratory of...
