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.
- Education of Process and Chemical Engineers is embedded in the Educational system of Germany , which is characterized by a great variety.
- Lifelong learning is an important factor to maintain and develop professional qualification. Several institutions are offering courses for continuing education in Process, Chemical and Biochemical Engineering.
- More information related to engineering education can be obtained from the following organisations.
- The ProcessNet-Subject Division on Education and In-Training in Process Engineering
- Who we are and what we do.
The work of the GVC-Working Party on Education in Process and Chemical Engineering has among other things resulted in the following publications:
- Neugierig auf Verfahrenstechnik (2008; in German) (pdf-file, 8.5 MB)
- Qualification Frames and Curricula for Degree Courses for Process Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Biomolecular or Bioprocess Engineering at Universities and Fachhochschulen (Universities of Applied Sciences) (2008)
- Qualifikationsrahmen für promovierte Verfahrens-, Bio- oder Chemieingenieure und Empfehlungen zur Gestaltung der Promotionsphase
- More publications can be found in our archive
To our regret so far some of this information is only available in German; some specific content is available in English.
