Welcome to the German Website of the EFCE Working Party on Education


This website is edited by the ProcessNet Subject Division on Education and In-Training in Process Engineering. ProcessNet is an initiative of DECHEMA and VDI-GVC.

On our website information and links related to education and to life long learning in Process, Chemical and Biochemical Engineering in Germany are provided.

  • Process, Chemical and Biochemical Engineering (Verfahrenstechnik / Chemieingenieurwesen /Bioingenieurwesen) can be studied at Universities (of Technology) (more orientated to science and research) and at Universities of Applied Science (Fachhochschulen; more orientated to applications) as well as at some so called Universities of Cooperative Education (Berufsakademien), which are offering a special type of vocational education.
  • Nowadays first cycle programmes leading to a Bachelor's degree and second cycle programmes leading to a Master's degree according to the  Bologna Process are offered. The previous long cycle programmes leading to a tradional "Diplom" degree will disappear within the next years.
  • More information related to engineering education can be obtained from the following organisations.

The work of the GVC-Working Party on Education in Process and Chemical Engineering has among other things resulted in the following publications:

To our regret so far some of this information is only available in German; some specific content is available in English.
