Chemical Engineering Science MRes


Course Description

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.

Selected modules from our taught programmes can be combined with an extended research project to obtain an MRes degree. This is a strongly research-orientated qualification and provides excellent training for further research in industry or academia.

Programme content:

Taught modules support the development of both research and transferable skills. All students take a set of compulsory modules and a selection of optional modules of their choice (subject to timetabling) in addition to their research project
