Masters Degrees in Chemical Engineering combine Science and Engineering knowledge to tackle specific practical problems. You could study the design and production of new synthetic materials, improve modern fuel and energy sources or learn how to solve pressing environmental challenges.
Various qualifications are offered in this subject area. Chemical Engineering specialisms are available as part of four-year undergraduate MEngs, or as dedicated MSc programmes. Research-based courses such as MRes and MPhil degrees are also available, with a greater emphasis on independent project-work.
A Chemical Engineering Masters will develop expertise in understanding and solving problems faced in a number of important fields and industries.
You might work on developing new techniques for the oil and gas industries. Or you might help create high-tech synthetic materials from the resources they extract. Alternatively, you could solve environmental problems by coming up with more efficient ways to reduce carbon emissions or water pollution.
Your training as a Chemical Engineer will also be appreciated by any employer who recognises the value of self-organisation, initiative and an innovative approach to problem solving.
