This course will extend your existing knowledge to provide you with advanced chemical engineering and process technology skills for exciting and challenging careers in these process industries.
You’ll develop advanced knowledge in key areas such as reaction engineering, product development, process modelling and simulation, and pharmaceutical formulation or energy technology.
The course has been designed to provide greater depth in aspects of advanced chemical engineering and a range of up-to-date process technologies. These will enable you to design, operate and manage processes and associated manufacturing plants, and to provide leadership in innovation, research and development and technology transfer.
This course is suitable for chemical engineering graduates. If you have an undergraduate degree in a relevant engineering or science discipline such as chemistry, you may wish to consider our Chemical Process Engineering MSc.
Your Research Project module gives you the chance to study in cutting-edge facilities where our researchers are pushing the boundaries of chemical engineering.
We have world-class facilities for carrying out research in manufacturing (including crystallisation), processing and characterising particulate systems for a wide range of technological materials, as well as facilities for nanotechnology and colloid science and technology.
We also have high-performance computing facilities and state-of-the-art computer software, including computational fluid dynamics (CFD), for modelling and simulation of a wide range of processes. This will provide a strong background knowledge in industrial process and equipment design and optimisation.
You’ll study compulsory modules on cutting-edge topics such as recent advances in chemical engineering, reaction engineering, multi-scale modelling (including CFD), batch process engineering, and product design and development.
You’ll complement this with a choice of optional modules, allowing you to gain specialist knowledge in a topic that suits your career plans or personal interests. Optional module topics include pharmaceutical formulation; nuclear operations; fuel processing and materials structures and characterisation.
Every student undertakes a research project that runs throughout the year. You’ll focus on a topic of your choice that fits within one of the School’s research areas and produce an independent study, reflecting the knowledge and skills you’ve acquired. This will enable you to gain experience of planning, executing and reporting a research work of the type you will undertake in an industrial or academic environment.
This course is accredited by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE), which satisfies the requirements for Further Learning to Masters Level for students with an ICHEME-accredited Bachelor degree (or with the academic equivalent assessed through the IChemE Individual Case Procedure).
This provides the fast-track route to professional Chartered Engineer (CEng) status and ensures the quality of the education provided.
