Facing the era of globalization in the future, job, and career opportunities across national borders will be more widely open. Competition to get a job is getting tougher, both at the local and global levels. Increasing the level of education, deepening competence, and expanding the network are some of the anticipatory steps that need to be taken and increasing education level in a chemical engineering major. 

The Department of Chemical Engineering UGM establishes postgraduate programs with the areas of concentration relevant to job fields and technological developments, especially industry. There are currently two options in the Magister Program that can be taken by prospective students, namely Master by Course and Master by Research. The learning outcomes are the same for both options. The difference between the options lies in the delivery methods and the emphasis on the learning process.

In the Master by Course option, the students must take 32 credit points of courses and 8 credit points of research. Fresh graduates and professionals can take this option.  The other option is Master by Research with 8 credit points of classes and 32 credit points for research, thesis, and publications. The Master by Research option is only opened for professionals. Detailed syllabi for each options are provided in the other section (see the sections of “Master by Course” and “Master by Research”).



Dear Visitors,

On behalf of the Magister Program, Chemical Engineering Department, Universitas Gadjah Mada, I would like to extend our warm greeting to welcome you to our website. 

Life in the 21st century is not only about basic needs such as food, housing, and clothing. It is hard to visualize a modern lifestyle without the large-scale production of various sophisticated products, ranging from pharmaceutical industries, fertilizers, agricultural chemicals, physiological-compatible polymers for biomedical devices, high-strength polymer composites, synthetic fibers and fabrics, protective coatings, and even microelectronic devices. In all of the products mentioned above, there are traces of chemical engineers' contributions. Not only in the production aspects, safety, health, and environmental considerations have also become an integrated part of chemical engineers' core competencies. With such a high expectation of the chemical engineers' roles, it is impossible to teach everything in the undergraduate program, especially in the seemingly borderless area like chemical engineering science.

Our Magister Program in Chemical Engineering Department, Universitas Gadjah Mada, prepares several channels through which chemical engineers can build their specializations beyond the bachelor level's general skills. Supported by the faculty members' acclaimed reputation and the strong collaboration networks, we are looking forward to being your learning partners.

Enjoy your virtual tour on our website and explore your options to signify your future contribution to society through chemical engineering pathways. Shall you need direct communication with us, our front officers are ready to promptly answer you through the address (email/telephone) provided in the Contact.

Warm regards from Yogyakarta,

Muhammad Mufti Azis, S.T., M.Sc., Ph.D.
The Head of Master Program
