Key Features of MSc by Research in Bioprocess Engineering
Our research on Bioprocess Engineering builds on established process engineering areas with application to energy, health, food, water and the environment.
One of our major strengths is our close and extensive involvement with local, national and international engineering companies.
MSc by Research in Bioprocess Engineering typically lasts one year full-time, two to three years part-time. This is an individual research project written up in a thesis of 30,000 words.
Students enrolled on the MSc by Research in Bioprocess Engineering benefit from the facilities at the Centre for Water Advanced Technologies and Environmental Research (CWATER) at Swansea University.
The Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 ranks Engineering at Swansea as 10th in the UK for the combined score in research quality across the Engineering disciplines.
The REF shows that 94% of research produced by our academic staff is of World-Leading (4*) or Internationally Excellent (3*) quality. This has increased from 73% in the 2008 RAE.
Research pioneered at the College of Engineering harnesses the expertise of academic staff within the department. This ground-breaking multidisciplinary research informs our world-class teaching with several of our staff leaders in their fields.
