The MSc requires you to take eight taught modules. You'll take four in chemical & process engineering, two in sustainability/environmental and two in multidisciplinary skills.
Successful completion of six modules leads to the award of a Postgraduate Certificate.
- Group project
You’ll work with a group of students from different pathways of the Sustainable Engineering programme. You’ll produce sustainable solutions to real-life industry problems. This project will include site visits, field trips and progress reports to industry partners.
Successful completion of eight modules and the group project leads to the award of a Postgraduate Diploma.
- Individual project
An individual research project is offered where you'll be working with our highly talented team of leading researchers on chemical engineering issues of the future.
MSc students will study a selected topic in depth and submit a thesis.
Successful completion of eight modules, the group project and an individual project leads to the award of an MSc.
We have state-of-the-art research laboratories housing a comprehensive suite of experimental facilities. These range from light scattering to spectroscopy to adsorption measurements to high pressure viscometry.
The department also specialises in advanced computational modelling. This is looking at materials and processes on all scales from the atomic to the macroscopic.
You'll have access to the department's own dedicated computer suite which is installed with industry standard software..
The programme meets accreditation requirements for the Institute of Chemical Engineers which would allow graduates to apply for chartered engineer status.
Pre-Masters preparation course
The Pre-Masters Programme is a preparation course for international students (non EU/UK) who do not meet the entry requirements for a Masters degree at University of Strathclyde
. The Pre-Masters programme provides progression to a number of degree options.
