Chemical Process Engineering

The doctoral programme in Chemical Process Engineering was established in 1986 within the framework of the UPC’s Department of Chemical Engineering. Over the last 30 years, the programme has produced some 160 doctoral graduates, most of whom have gone on to work in the business sector or at universities or research centres.

The programme’s prioritisation of industrial applicability translates into a focus on developing innovative techniques and methods. Doctoral theses completed within the framework of the programme are characterised by innovation and originality, technological impact, and applicability in industrial production and environmental protection. The two main fields covered are the design, improvement, simulation and optimisation of operations and processes, and analysis and reduction of risk and environmental impact (in relation to severe accidents, emissions, waste, etc.).

In 2004, the programme was recognised with a quality award given by the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science (MCD2004-00410), which was renewed without interruption until 2010. From 2011 to 2013 (the year of the most recent call), the programme was recognised with a Pathway to Excellence award (MEE2011-0313). The approach and track record of the programme have made it very attractive to graduates of other Catalan universities (30% of students in the last five years) and from Spanish universities and institutions in the Americas (20% and 35% of students in the last five years, respectively). The programme was associated with the UPC master’s degree in Chemical Process Engineering and is now linked to the master’s degree in Chemical Engineering: Smart Chemical Factories, specialisation in Green Chemical Process Engineering.

Research carried out within the programme is currently supported by five research groups, all of which are very active at the international level. Four are recognised as consolidated research groups by the Government of Catalonia, and one as an emerging research group. Research is conducted within the framework of European projects, with funding from national and regional administrations, and projects carried out for companies.

The programme has done scientific, academic and professional work of great interest. The chemical industry plays a key role in the Spanish economy and in contemporary society, and the chemical business of production companies based in Catalonia currently accounts for 48% of the total for Spain and 50% of commercial activity in the sector (source: http://www.fedequim.es/).

The scientific and academic quality of the doctoral programme is evident in the scientific results achieved (publications, awards, etc.) since it was launched. The interest of employers is reflected in the hiring of graduates to fill positions of responsibility.

Duration of studies and dedication regime

Duration
The maximum period of study for full-time doctoral studies is three years, counted from the date of admission to the programme to the date of submission of the doctoral thesis. The academic committee of the doctoral programme may authorise a doctoral candidate to pursue doctoral studies on a part-time basis. In this case, the maximum period of study is five years, counting from the date of admission to the programme to the date of submission of the doctoral thesis. For calculating these periods, the date of admission is considered to be the date of the first enrolment for tutorials, and the date of submission the moment in which the Doctoral School officially deposits the doctoral thesis.

For full-time doctoral candidates, the minimum period of study is two years, counted from the date of an applicant's admission to the programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited; for part-time doctoral candidates it is four years. When there are justified grounds for doing so, and the thesis supervisor and academic tutor have given their authorisation, doctoral candidates may request that the academic committee of their doctoral programme exempt them from the minimum period of study requirement.

The calculation of periods of study will not include periods of absence due to illness, pregnancy or any other reason provided for in the regulations in force. Students who find themselves in any of these circumstances must notify the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which, where appropriate, must inform the Doctoral School. Doctoral candidates may also temporarily withdraw from the programme for up to one year, and this period may be extended for an additional year. Doctoral candidates who wish to interrupt their studies must submit a justified request to the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which will decide whether or not to approve the request. Each programme will establish conditions for readmission to doctoral studies.

Extension
If full-time doctoral candidates have not applied to deposit their thesis by the end of the three-year period of study, the academic committee of the programme may authorise an extension of up to one year. In exceptional circumstances, a further one-year extension may be granted, subject to the conditions established by the corresponding doctoral programme. In the case of part-time doctoral candidates, an extension of two years may be authorised. In both cases, in exceptional circumstances a further one-year extension may be granted by the Doctoral School's Standing Committee, upon the submission of a reasoned application by the academic committee of the doctoral programme.

Dismissal from the doctoral programme
A doctoral candidate may be dismissed from a doctoral programme for the following reasons:

  • The doctoral candidate submitting a justified application to withdraw from the programme.
  • The maximum period of study and of extensions thereof ending.
  • The doctoral candidate not having enrolled every academic year (unless he or she has been authorised to temporarily withdraw).
  • The doctoral candidate failing two consecutive assessments.
  • The doctoral candidate having disciplinary proceedings filed against him or her that rule that he or she must be dismissed from the UPC.

Dismissal from the programme implies that doctoral candidates cannot continue studying at the UPC and the closing of their academic record. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission and the committee must reevaluate them in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

Enrollment aid

The programme does not provide any specific grants to cover enrolment fees. In exceptional cases, research groups may offer one-off grants.

Admission criteria and merits assessment

Weighting
1. Applicant’s curriculum vitae: Type of training and marks awarded, as well as research and professional experience (70%).
2. Personal contact through online or face-to-face interviews (15%).
3. English language skills (15%)


Admissions body
The programme has an academic committee that assesses student applications. Each month, the committee reviews applications submitted through the pre-enrolment application.

The doctoral programme has a specific form for doctoral students to indicate their scientific and technical interests. Based on this information, and taking into account the needs and capacity of research groups, the academic committee channels the applications accepted so that tutors and thesis supervisors can be assigned.

If the academic committee deems that additional training is required for an applicant to be admitted, it determines what bridging courses the student will be required to take to ensure that they have the necessary skills, knowledge and abilities (up to a maximum of 60 ECTS credits).

Training complements

The academic committee for the doctoral programme may require that students pass specific bridging courses. Additional training requirements will be determined based on each student's academic background. In such cases, the committee will keep track of the bridging courses completed and establish appropriate criteria to limit their duration.

Bridging courses may provide research or cross-disciplinary training, but in no case may doctoral students be required to enrol for 60 or more ECTS credits.


Students will complete any additional training within the framework of the master's degree in Chemical Engineering offered by the Barcelona East School of Engineering (EEBE-UPC) or by taking cross-disciplinary training courses organised by the UPC. This master's degree includes a specialisation module in Green Chemical Process Engineering (GCPE), which offers students the option of acquiring a specialisation in which the Department has a solid track record in both teaching and research. This specialisation focuses on advanced design of chemical process plants, with particular emphasis on state-of-the-art methods for safety and risk analysis and environmental protection.

Based on each applicant's background and the gaps in their training, bridging courses are selected from among subjects taught on the master's degree in Chemical Engineering. Applicants are informed of the bridging courses they will be required to take prior to the enrolment process. At the same time, they are also provided with information on the frequency with which courses are offered and the pertinence of their content.

The following points apply to any bridging courses that doctoral students may be required to take:
1. Bridging courses are subjects of the specified master's degree and must be administratively linked to the student’s enrolment in the doctoral degree. They may be taken in one or two semesters, depending on the student’s previous training and the frequency with which the subjects are offered.
2. Students who do not successfully complete required bridging courses will be automatically excluded from the programme.

Monitoring and evaluation of the doctoral student

Procedure for the preparation and defense of the research plan

Doctoral candidates must submit a research plan, which will be included in their doctoral student activity report, before the end of the first year. The plan may be improved over the course of the doctoral degree. It must be endorsed by the tutor and the supervisor, and it must include the method that is to be followed and the aims of the research.

At least one of these annual assessments will include a public presentation and defence of the research plan and work done before a committee composed of three doctoral degree holders, which will be conducted in the manner determined by each academic committee. The examination committee awards a Pass or Fail mark. A Pass mark is a prerequisite for continuing on the doctoral programme. Doctoral candidates awarded a Fail mark must submit a new research plan for assessment by the academic committee of the doctoral programme within six months.

The committee assesses the research plan every year, in addition to all of the other activities in the doctoral student activity report. Doctoral candidates who are awarded two consecutive Fail marks for the research plan will be obliged to definitely withdraw from the programme.

If they change the subject of their thesis, they must submit a new research plan.

Procedure for assignment of tutor and thesis director

The academic committee of the doctoral programme assigns a thesis supervisor to each doctoral candidate when they are admitted or enrol for the first time, taking account of the thesis supervision commitment referred to in the admission decision.

The thesis supervisor will ensure that training activities carried out by the doctoral candidate are coherent and suitable, and that the topic of the candidate’s doctoral thesis will have an impact and make a novel contribution to knowledge in the relevant field. The thesis supervisor will also guide the doctoral candidate in planning the thesis and, if necessary, tailoring it to any other projects or activities undertaken. The thesis supervisor will generally be a UPC professor or researcher who holds a doctoral degree and has documented research experience. This includes PhD-holding staff at associated schools (as determined by the Governing Council) and UPC-affiliated research institutes (in accordance with corresponding collaboration and affiliation agreements). When thesis supervisors are UPC staff members, they also act as the doctoral candidate’s tutor.

PhD holders who do not meet these criteria (as a result of their contractual relationship or the nature of the institution to which they are attached) must be approved by the UPC Doctoral School's Standing Committee in order to participate in a doctoral programme as researchers with documented research experience.

The academic committee of the doctoral programme may approve the appointment of a PhD-holding expert who is not a UPC staff member as a candidate’s thesis supervisor. In such cases, the prior authorisation of the UPC Doctoral School's Standing Committee is required. A UPC staff member who holds a doctoral degree and has documented research experience must also be proposed to act as a co-supervisor, or as the doctoral candidate’s tutor if one has not been assigned.

A thesis supervisor may step down from this role if there are justified reasons (recognised as valid by the committee) for doing so. If this occurs, the academic committee of the doctoral programme will assign the doctoral candidate a new thesis supervisor.

Provided there are justified reasons for doing so, and after hearing any relevant input from the doctoral candidate, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may assign a new thesis supervisor at any time during the period of doctoral study.

If there are academic reasons for doing so (an interdisciplinary topic, joint or international programmes, etc.) and the academic committee of the programme gives its approval, an additional thesis supervisor may be assigned. Supervisors and co-supervisors have the same responsibilities and academic recognition.

The maximum number of supervisors of a doctoral thesis is two: a supervisor and a co-supervisor.

For theses carried out under a cotutelle agreement or as part of an Industrial Doctorate, if necessary and if the agreement foresees it this maximum number of supervisors may not apply. This notwithstanding, the maximum number of supervisors belonging to the UPC is two.

More information at the PhD theses section

Permanence

The academic committee of the programme may authorise an extension of up to one year for full-time doctoral candidates who have not applied to deposit their thesis by the end of the three-year period of study, in the terms outlined in the Academic Regulations for Doctoral Studies of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. In the case of part-time candidates, an extension of two years may be authorised. In both cases, in exceptional circumstances a further one-year extension may be granted by the Doctoral School's Standing Committee, upon the submission of a reasoned application by the academic committee of the doctoral programme.

A doctoral candidate may be dismissed from a doctoral programme for the following reasons:

  • The doctoral candidate submitting a justified application to withdraw from the programme.
  • The maximum period of study and of extensions thereof ending.
  • The doctoral candidate not having enrolled every academic year (unless he or she has been authorised to temporarily withdraw).
  • The doctoral candidate failing two consecutive assessments.
  • The doctoral candidate having disciplinary proceedings filed against him or her that rule that he or she must be dismissed from the UPC.

Dismissal from the programme implies that doctoral candidates cannot continue studying at the UPC and the closing of their academic record. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission and the committee must reevaluate them in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

International Mention

The doctoral degree certificate may include International Doctorate mention. In this case, the doctoral candidate must meet the following requirements:

a) During the period of study leading to the award of the doctoral degree, the doctoral candidate must have spent at least three months at a respected higher education institution or research centre outside Spain to complete courses or do research work. The stays and activities carried out must be endorsed by the thesis supervisor and authorised by the academic committee of the programme. The candidate must provide a certifying document issued by the person responsible for the research group of the body or bodies where the stay or activity was completed. This information will be added to the doctoral student’s activity report.
b) Part of the thesis (at least the summary and conclusions) must be written and presented in one of the languages commonly used for science communication in the relevant field of knowledge, which must not be an official language of Spain. This rule does not apply to stays and reports in Spanish or to experts from Spanish-speaking countries.
c) At least two PhD-holding experts belonging to a higher education institution or research centre outside Spain must have issued officially certified reports on the thesis.
d) The thesis examination committee must have included at least one PhD-holding expert from a higher education or research institution outside Spain who was not responsible for the candidate’s stay abroad (point a) above).
e) The thesis defence must have taken place on UPC premises or, in the case of joint programmes, at the location specified in the collaboration agreement.

    Thesis abstract: Climate change and overpopulation are responsible for more frequent droughts, and the imbalance in the water resources management leads to a greater competition in the exploitation of freshwater sources. The introduction of alternative water resources such as reclaimed water seems to be one of the most sustainable option from an economic and environmental point of view, compared with other alternatives such as seawater desalination or water transfer. Nevertheless, the wide implementation of water reuse is still far from its whole potential and faces different local barriers related to public awareness and governance.The presence of organic micropollutants (OMP) in the water cycle, specifically in the wastewater effluents intended to be reclaimed and reused, has generated concern in public authorities due to their uncertain effects in human health. During last decades, limited removal efficiencies in conventional wastewater and reclamation schemes were reported by several authors. In this line, innovation must bring suitable solutions to unblock current barriers. Novel advanced water reclamation technologies need to be demonstrated to guarantee the cost-effective removal of OMP, as well as provide solutions in terms of brine management or valorization. Moreover, it is necessary to propose educational and communication initiatives and address innovative governance models to achieve the economic feasibility of water reuse projects. Throughout three published articles (Chapter 3-5), this PhD thesis evaluates and compares from a technical and economic point of view different advanced municipal wastewater reclamation schemes to produce cost-effective reclaimed water to be reused. An industrial pilot-scale demonstration conducted in El Baix Llobregat WRP (Barcelona, Spain), removal efficiencies and costs of different advanced reclamation technologies focused on the removal of OMP were assessed, including PAC-MBR, ozonation-UV, PAC-UF, UF-RO and an innovative high-performance sorbent (CNM). On the other hand, tools to ease decision making in water reuse planning through a rapid estimation in costs need to be proposed. Cost curves for CAPEX and OPEX for different reclamation technologies will be also calculated and applied to estimate implementation costs of reusing urban reclaimed water for industrial uses in three different case studies in the Barcelona (Spain) area.The ultimate goal is to provide knowledge to overcome some of the identified barriers and contribute to a higher implementation of water reuse.

    Thesis abstract: This work facuses on the study of these processes on Ti02 and Ce02, respectively. Although the development of photocatalytic research with the use of semiconductor photocatalysts does not last longer than about 40 years, this field of knowledge is gaining more and more interest from both science and industry. Photocatalytic water decomposition or photocatalytic detoxification of industrial wastewater is currently the subject of research in many centers. As explained in the lntroduction, the potential use of free solar radiation as the primary energy source in photocatalytic processes is an unquestionable advantage of this method.Unfortunately, the research for new photocatalysts active in visible radiation, which has been going on far years, has led to mediocre progress in this field. There is still a shortage of effective photocatalysts, especially far the photocatalytic decomposition of water. Here, under strictly anaerobic conditions, the quantum efficiency are very low. Therefore, work in many laboratories focuses on increasing the photocatalytic efficiency of the tested photocatalysts, preparing new photocatalysts, or designing hybrid systems. The section Compendium of articles describes the preparation of catalysts far the photocatalytic production of hydrogen. Far this purpose, catalysts based on carbon materials (reduced graphene/activated carbon) and titanium dioxide doped with metal nanoparticles (Au/Pt) were prepared (Objective 1). Also, the use of macroporous silicon microreactors to photogenerate hydrogen after coating the microchannels with Au/Ti02 and PUTi02 photocatalysts was investigated (Objective 2). The development of solar technologies for converting C02 into fuel has become a great energy challenge as it completes the anthropogenic carbon cycle and leads to the production of sustainable transport fuels on a global scale. However, the low mass conversion, poor selectivity, or low energy efficiency of the current approaches hinder their industrial application. The section Annex presents the thermochemical decomposition of C02 (an analogous process to water decomposition into hydrogen) on different shapes of cerium oxide catalyst doped with metals (Pt, Au, Ni, Ru, Pd). Moreover, the influence of the catalyst preparation method {ball milling vs. incipient wetness impregnation) has been studied (Objectives 3, 4 and 5). To better understand the functioning mechanism of the cerium oxide catalyst, molecular dynamics simulations with water molecules were performed (Objective 6). The last chapter I will explain the Conclusions of this doctoral thesis. Overall, the specific objectives of this thesis are: Objective 1: To synthesize and characterize titanium dioxide-carbon compounds composites as photocatalysts to produce hydrogen from water/alcohol mixtures. Objective 2: To explore the use of macroporous silicon structures to photogenerate hydrogen after coating the microchannels with Au/Ti02 and Pt/Ti02 photocatalysts. Objective 3: To synthesize and characterize nanoshaped ceria exposing different crystallographic planes far thermochemical conversion of C02. Objective 4: To study the influence of metal nanoparticles (Au, Ni, Pd, Pt, Ru) on nanoshaped ceria far thermochemical conversion of C02. Objective 5: To study the influence of catalyst preparation methods using incipient wetness impregnation (IWI) and ball milling (BM). Objective 6: To use molecular dynamics to study the interaction between H20 molecules and ceria octahedral [111] by examining the effect on the surface.

Quality

The Validation, Monitoring, Modification and Accreditation Framework (VSMA Framework) for official degrees ties the quality assurance processes (validation, monitoring, modification and accreditation) carried out over the lifetime of a course to two objectives—the goal of establishing coherent links between these processes, and that of achieving greater efficiency in their management—all with the overarching aim of improving programmes.
