Course content

Why this course?

This unique Masters course trains you in key aspects of modern manufacturing approaches suitable for pharmaceuticals and high-value chemicals.

It's designed to produce highly-skilled graduates in continuous manufacturing science and technology to meet the growing demands for expertise in this area. You’ll be trained to take up jobs in the food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries.

The course is aligned with the EPSRC Doctoral Training Centre in Continuous Manufacturing & Crystallisation (CMAC). It’s supported by academic staff from across the University, six academic partners and CMAC's strategic partners (AstraZeneca, GlaxoSmithKline, Novartis).

You’ll study

The course consists of taught classes along with practical classes from October to April.

If you successfully complete all assessments you’ll then undertake a 10-week research project. This can be at the University or with an external company or organisation. You’ll submit a thesis at the end of August.

You'll learn about:

  • pharmaceutical development and production
  • continuous manufacturing processes
  • crystallisation mechanisms
  • manufacturing processes as they related to the modern pharmaceutical industry
  • transferable, professional skills
  • Process Analytical Technology (PAT) and data analytic
  • quality assurance
  • Management and Quality-by-Design systems.
