Chemical engineering now extends beyond its traditional roots in oil and gas processing. Read more

Chemical engineering now extends beyond its traditional roots in oil and gas processing. In this course you will learn about the aspects of chemical engineering that deal with the design and development of formulated products such as food and pharmaceuticals. The programme has options in Food Processing, Pharmaceutical Technology and Business Studies. 

Chemical Engineering is dynamic and evolving. It provides many solutions to problems facing industries in the pharmaceutical, biotechnological, oil, energy and food and drink sectors. It is vital to many issues affecting our quality of life; such as better and more economical processes to reduce the environmental burden, and more delicious and longer lasting food due to the right combination of chemistry, ingredients and processing.  

Birmingham is a friendly, self-confident, School which has one of the largest concentrations of chemical engineering expertise in the UK. The School is consistently in the top five chemical engineering schools for research in the country. It also has a first-class reputation in learning and teaching, and regularly ranks highly in league tables.

Course details

This programme focuses on exploring the aspects of chemical engineering that deal with the design and development of formulated products, such as food and pharmaceuticals. Our graduates are well prepared for a career in a variety of industries and have an opportunity to capitalise on the growing global demand for chemical engineers.

In the autumn and spring semesters, you will study 5 compulsory core modules and 60 credits of optional modules. In the summer semester, each student on the MSc programme will then undertake an individual project in a research area of their choice within one of the School’s internationally recognised research groups.

The multidisciplinary core modules cover the fundamental science and engineering underpinning the design of sophisticated formulated products. Depending upon your academic background, you will begin by studying

the fundamental principles of either chemical engineering or the relevant biological science.

A wide range of optional modules enables you to gain specific knowledge relating to fuel cells, food and/or pharmaceutical product development. Safety, regulatory and quality issues applicable across the relevant industries are also considered. Core skill modules are topics that may be applied across all themed areas. You may also choose to study business and management modules, or develop mathematical modelling skills. You will have the freedom to pick and choose modules from each theme (providing timetabling allows for this).

Course details

This programme falls within the theme ‘Sustainable Power Generation and Supply’ of the Research Councils’ Energy Programme, the first of its kind in the UK. 

Masters graduates will have a systematic knowledge and understanding of hydrogen, fuel cells and their applications, including developments and problems at the forefront of the discipline. They will be able to evaluate current research critically, and be original in the application of their knowledge, proposing new hypotheses as appropriate. 

Typical Masters graduates will be able to deal with complex issues, making sound judgements in the absence of complete information, and will be able to communicate their conclusions clearly to specialist and non-specialist audiences. They will be self-motivating and able to act autonomously, and will have the qualities and transferable skills necessary to exercise initiative and personal responsibility, to make decisions in complex and unpredictable situations, and to have the independent learning ability required for continuing professional development. 

Their high level of numeracy and skills in problem solving, team working, communication and information technology will equip them for successful careers outside as well as within the process and allied industries. 

The MRes in Hydrogen, Fuel Cells and their Applications:

  • Demonstrates the exciting future promise of hydrogen, fuel cells and their applications in a zero-emission world
  • Shows that industry supports the developments and that jobs are plentiful
  • Stresses the international nature of the course, with travel overseas
  • Emphasises the high quality nature of the teaching in top grade RAE Schools
  • Supports entrepreneurial spirit, with three spin-out companies in hydrogen and fuel cells founded during the past 12 months at the University of Birmingham

Programme content

The programme will focus on taught modules (60 credits) in science, engineering and team building, as well as business and management, and a dissertation. 

The programme can be studied full-time over one year, or part-time over two or three years. Modules are also available individually to fulfil continuing professional development needs.

Dissertation

The research thesis will focus on any of the following areas: Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Systems, Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Stack Engineering for Domestic Applications, Hydrogen Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC) Stack Engineering for Automotive, Hybrid Vehicular Systems, Membrane Electrode Assembly (MEA) & Electrocatalyst development, Direct Methanol Fuel Cell (DMFC) Stack Engineering for Portable Applications, Alkaline Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cells, Discovery of New Nano-Materials for Hydrogen Production & Storage, Discovery of non-PGM alloys Materials, Hydrogen Production from Biomolecules by Novel Methods, Development of Novel Pd Alloy Thin-films for Use in High temperature Hydrogen Membrane Reactors. 

Successful Masters students will have the opportunity to study for the PhD with Integrated Study in Hydrogen, Fuel Cells and their Applications.
