Bachelor in Chemical and Biological Engineering
BQBE combines both a solid background in Chemical Engineering and Biological Engineering, giving it a differentiating and comprehensive character, allowing its graduates an easy integration in various sectors of industrial activity and services.
In addition to providing excellent preparation in the fundamental sciences, BQBE cross-integrated training in chemical and biological processes will be highly advantageous to meet the enormous challenges of the technological transition to a sustainable economy. The existence of an integrating project and the execution of short internships in industrial environment facilitate the integration into the labor market at the national and international level.
The transition to a sustainable economy motivates a growing industrial implementation of biotechnological processes. In this context, BEQB provides comprehensive training in the areas of Chemical Engineering and Biological Engineering, ensuring high employability in the most varied sectors:
Chemical and Biotechnology Industries (petrochemical and oil refining, natural gas processing, cement, cellulose and paper pulp, pharmaceutical and fine chemicals, food, and new materials).
Public Services and Service Companies.
Engineering and Research Laboratories in Companies.

(a) 6 ECTS in courses chosen by the student on a list approved annually by the Scientific Council of FCT NOVA, which includes the unity of all scientific areas of FCT NOVA.
Conditions of admittance
The evaluation of all UCs is continuous for all the components that integrate it, and it must be completed by the last day of the school term of the academic semester.
The continuous evaluation of a UC must include a minimum of three elements in the set of evaluation components, on dates adequately spaced throughout the period of classes.
All UCs with a theoretical-practical evaluation component must provide, in addition, a form of evaluation of this component by exam, to be carried out after the period of classes (Examination of Appeal).
All requirements and conditions related to the evaluation of the UC, namely the minimum weights and classifications, if any, of each component, as well as the Frequency conditions, are defined a priori and, mandatorily, published in the Discipline Form.
For each UC, combinations of three evaluation components are allowed: (i) Theoretical-practical evaluation; (ii) Laboratory or project evaluation; (iii) Summative assessment.
