The programme provides advanced studies in chemical engineering, reflecting the research expertise and scholarship within the Department of Chemical & Environmental Engineering. Relevance to industry is a strong feature of this course which offers a unique combination of science and engineering skills.
It offers graduates with a Bachelor level (BEng) accredited degree the further learning requirement for chartership. The department provides a strong and dynamic environment with close links between research and teaching. Students on this programme will be able to think and function in an integrated manner across the area of chemical engineering.
This course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Chemical Engineers( IChemE) and is designed to meet the UK-SPEC requirements of IChemE for those students who already hold BEng, BSc or non-accredited chemical engineering degree and wish to proceed to chartered status.
You will gain skills in advanced engineering practice, which includes design, operations, problem-solving and practical elements. The advanced practice is centred on themes in energy and environmental applications, so you can gain significant experience in areas such as petroleum processing, energy efficiency, carbon capture and water treatment.
Students will develop: skills in research, project management, problem solving and reporting ability to communicate ideas effectively in written reports, verbally and by means of presentations to groups ability to exercise original thought ability to plan and undertake an individual project interpersonal communication and professional skills
