Overview

This course will build upon your existing scientific and engineering knowledge and skills to convert them into a specialisation in chemical engineering. It will provide you with up-to-date competencies in chemical engineering and process technology, paving the way for an exciting and challenging career in the industry.

Upon graduating from this course, you will be able to design, operate and manage processes and associated manufacturing plants. You will also gain key skills in innovation leadership, technology transfer and research and development that you will draw on in your future career.

You’ll undertake a large research project and study a series of compulsory taught modules covering chemical engineering principles; chemical process technology; chemical reaction processes; separation processes; plant design; batch process engineering and chemical products design and development.

Specialist facilities

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/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.

Accreditation

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.

Course content

You’ll study a series of compulsory modules which will build your knowledge of chemical engineering principles, chemical products design and development, separation processes, chemical process technology, chemical reaction processes and batch process engineering.

Your team design project will give you the skills and practical experience necessary to contribute to major industrial multi-disciplinary design projects. Your team will plan and execute the project, identify and analyse key issues in materials science and engineering that will affect the project’s success, and deliver final recommendations.

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.

APPLY 

Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS)

The UK Government’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) operates a scheme called the Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS). If you are an international (non-EU/EEA or Swiss citizen) applicant and require a student visa to study in the UK then you will need an ATAS certificate to study this course at the University of Leeds.

To apply for an ATAS certificate online, you will need your programme details and the relevant Common Aggregation Hierarchy (CAH) code and descriptor. For this course, the CAH code is: CAH10-01-09 and the descriptor is Chemical, Process and Energy Engineering.

More information and details on how to apply for your ATAS certificate can be found at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/academic-technology-approval-scheme.

Read about visas, immigration and other information in International students. We recommend that international students apply as early as possible to ensure that they have time to apply for their visa.

Fees

  • UK/EU: £10,500 (total)
  • International: £22,750 (total)
