About the course

Accredited by the the Institution of Chemical Engineers

Whether you’re already working in the field or just starting out, this course will deepen your understanding and equip you with skills and expertise in process safety, loss prevention and risk assessment. You’ll be ready for a career in the oil and gas, chemical, nuclear and pharmaceutical industries, or with any of the consultancies that service them.

Take advantage of our expertise

Our teaching is grounded in specialist research expertise. Our reputation for innovation secures funding from industry,
UK research councils, the government and the EU. Industry partners, large and small, benefit from our groundbreaking work addressing global challenges.

You’ll have access to top facilities, including modern social spaces, purpose-built labs, the Harpur Hill Research Station for large-scale work, extensive computing facilities and a modern applied science library. There are high-quality research facilities for sustainable energy processes, safety and risk engineering, carbon capture and utilisation, and biological processes and biomanufacturing.

Studentships

Contact us for current information on available scholarships.

Course content

Diploma: three core modules and five optional modules. MSc(Eng): one core module, major research project, and five optional modules.

Core modules

Process Safety Management and Loss Prevention
Introduction to Hazard Analysis and Risk Assessment
Hazards in Process Plant Design and Operation
Dissertation (for MSc)

Examples of optional modules

Process Plant Reliability and Maintainability
Human Error and Human Behaviour
Applied Hazard and Operability Studies (HAZOP)
Safety in Nuclear Operations
Computer Control: Safe Practice
Process Safety in the Oil and Gas Industry
Process Safety in the Pharmaceutical, Food and Consumer Products

Full-time or part-time

This course is available full-time over a year, or part-time over two or three years. Each module can be taken as a short course – useful if you’re already working in industry.

Part-time students need to complete all modules within two years. You can take an extra third year to complete your dissertation if you need to – we won’t charge fees for that year. Modules are delivered about once per month from September to June. Each module is four days long. You must therefore attend for 32 days in total.

Teaching and assessment

We use a mixture of lessons and discussions, real-life case studies, workshops and hands-on computer sessions. Continuous assessment is based on assignments for each module, and a dissertation.

Process engineering often involves close collaboration between engineers and scientists from a variety of disciplines. The Chemical Process Engineering MSc at UCL is specifically designed to facilitate this collaboration and provides graduates from a variety of engineering and science disciplines with the advanced training necessary to enter the chemical or biochemical industries.

Degree information

The programme covers core chemical engineering subjects alongside a wide range of options. Students choose either a research or an advanced design project. The advanced design project option is aimed at students who have not undertaken a design project during their undergraduate degree and eventually seek to become Chartered Engineers.

Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.

The programme consists of six optional modules (90 credits) and a project (90 credits).

Optional modules 1 (15 credits each) - students must choose three optional modules from the list below (45 credits in total).
-Advanced Process Engineering
-Advanced Safety and Loss Prevention
-Chemical Reaction Engineering II
-Electrochemical Engineering and Power Sources
-Energy Systems and Sustainability
-Fluid-Particle Systems
-Molecular Thermodynamics
-Nature Inspired Chemical Engineering
-Process Systems Modelling and Design (students taking this module must have passed the equivalent of Process Dynamics and Control in their first degree)
-Process Dynamics & Control
-Separation Processes
-Transport Phenomena II

Optional modules 2 (15 credits each) - students must choose three optional modules from the list below (45 credits in total).
-Advanced Bioreactor Engineering
-Environmental Systems
-Mastering Entrepreneurship
-Project Management
-Water and Wastewater Treatment

Research project/design project
All MSc students undertake either a Research Project (90 credits) or an Advanced Design Project (90 credits) that culminates in a project report and oral examination. Students who have already passed a Design Project module in their first degree cannot select the Advanced Design Project module.

Teaching and learning
The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, tutorials, and individual and group activities. Invited lectures delivered by industrialists provide a professional and social context. Assessment is through written papers, coursework, a report on the research or design project and an oral examination.

Careers

Upon completion, our graduates can expect to play a major role in developing the technologies that make available most of the things that we use in everyday life and provide the expertise and technology to enhance our health and standard of living. These activities may involve the development of new materials, food processing, water treatment, pharmaceuticals, transport and energy resources as well as being at the frontline, addressing present environmental issues such as climate change.

Typical destinations of recent graduates include: Amec Process and Energy, British Petroleum, Royal Dutch Shell, National Grid, Health & Safety Executive. Career profiles of some of our recent MSc graduates are available on our website.

Top career destinations for this degree:
-Project Engineer, Global Energy
-Process Engineer, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation
-Process Engineer, Petrofac
-Project Control Administrator, Mott MacDonald
-Project Engineer, Kinetics Process Systems Pte Ltd

Employability
Students gain in-depth knowledge of core chemical engineering subjects and of the advanced use of computers in process design, operation and management. They receive thorough training in hazard identification, quantification and mitigation, as well as in risk management and loss prevention, and also learn how to design advanced energy systems, with emphasis on sustainability, energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources. Students learn how to make decisions under uncertain scenarios and with limited available data and receive training on how to plan, conduct and manage a complex (design or research) project.

Why study this degree at UCL?

UCL Chemical Engineering, situated in the heart of London, is one of the top-rated departments in the UK, being internationally renowned for its outstanding research.

The programme is the first of its kind in the UK and is accredited by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) as meeting IChemE's requirements for Further Learning to Master's Level. This recognition will fulfil an important academic qualification for MSc graduates with suitable first degrees in eventually becoming Corporate Members of IChemE.

Whilst Safety and Reliability Engineering allows you to apply your skills and knowledge to a wider range of industries, this programme is specifically for the oil and gas industry. It provides you with the knowledge to review reliability of engineering facilities, materials and products and legislative framework at the same time. Safety has always been of paramount concern in the oil and gas industry with a lot of learning and knowledge acquired since the oil industry growth of the 1970s. This knowledge has been scrutinised by University of Aberdeen and the industry to provide professional expertise to manage safety and reliability. Future challenges are being met to some extent by the advent of affordable sensors which manage difficult to reach places, but nonetheless require the knowledge and capabilities of professionals working in this discipline to ensure they are fit for purpose.

The MSc Safety Engineering for Oil & Gas programme provides training in safety engineering, reliability engineering, and loss prevention in the offshore, nuclear, transport, aerospace and process industries and more. Fully accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE), the Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE) and the Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation (CIHT).
