Adjusted programme for student of the Bachelors in Civil Engineering who have not taken the "Chemistry and Material Sciences" option

First Year

Students studying for the Bachelors in Civil Engineering who have not chosen the appropriate option :
  • must take all the so-called "prerequisite" courses hereafter, if they were not taken during the 1st cycle. These courses must be taken during the 1st year of the masters and some 1st-year compulsory courses must be rolled over to the 2nd year.
  • must subsequently reduce the number of courses they choose to take in the 2nd year of the masters. If all the "prerequisite" courses must be taken, it will be impossible for them to choose which courses they take.
  • cannot choose the professional "management" focus.

The program adapted by these students has to receive the preliminary agreement of the Jury.

Second year

The programme is identical to that of the 2nd-year master in Chemical and Materials Engineering, within the limits of the remaining credits available after the refresher course.

Adjusted programme for bachelors in Chemical Sciences

This programme is defined in relation with the Bachelor in chemistry organised by the University of Liège's Faculty of Sciences.
It is likely to be greatly modified for students with a Bachelor in chemistry sciences from other institutions, depending on the knowledge, and courses not followed, whilst remaining within the limits of 75+60 ECTS.
