MPhil in Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology

Course Description

The course's main aims are to give students relevant experience, the opportunity to carry out focussed research in their discipline under close supervision, and the opportunity to acquire or develop skills and expertise relevant to their research interests. The MPhil is a research degree, and the qualification may count towards the entrance requirements for Ph.D. study. (Please note, however, that the MPhil in Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology does not 'convert' to a PhD. The course leads to a Master's degree only, and students wishing to pursue a PhD must re-apply for admission as a PhD student.)

Course detail

Students progress their research projects under academic supervision for one year, and at the conclusion of their studies, they are examined by thesis and oral examination.

Prospective students are invited to consider their research interests in the light of the specialisms of our senior academics and the Department’s on-going research activities.


Students will submit a 15,000 word thesis and are examined orally by two examiners--one internal and one external to the University.


This degree results in an MPhil only. Students who wish to pursue a PhD will need to submit a new application for PhD study.
