Our Chemical Engineering MSc will equip you with a multidisciplinary knowledge of chemical engineering in areas such as fuel cells, control, intensification and sustainability. It is intended for honours graduates with a chemical engineering degree who wish to advance their knowledge in the chemical and process engineering design.
The course meets the industry’s growing need for chemical engineers and provides an understanding of theory and its application in an economic and environmentally suitable way. It gives scientists and engineers the opportunity to work with researchers in the fields of new energy technologies and new advanced materials.
You will gain specialist knowledge and understanding via lectures, seminars and personal supervision. You will develop an understanding of:
The course is delivered by the School of Chemical Engineering and Advanced Materials. Hear first-hand from our students about studying with us in our postgraduate video.
We are seeking Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) accreditation, so you can be assured that you will graduate with a degree that meets the standards set out by the chemical engineering industry.
The School of Chemical Engineering and Advanced Materials has a wide range of attractive facilities.
The School occupies five floors in Merz Court, and we provide a Student Common Room and a separate Student Study Space.
Our Chemistry MSc provides advanced training in modern chemistry. It will give you an overview of chemistry topics as practised in modern research. You will receive speciality training in areas of organic, inorganic, physical and analytical chemistry.
Through this course you will achieve a high level of research competence. The research project and dissertation will provide you with training in tackling and communicating the results of a significant research problem in chemistry.
You will also gain experience in relevant aspects of laboratory work, including COSHH and safety.
You will gain specialist knowledge and understanding through lectures, seminars and workshops. You will also have taught laboratory classes where you’ll perform carefully designed and tested experiments.
The course is delivered through the School of Natural and Environmental Sciences. The School will provide personal study support throughout your course.
Your work is in chemistry laboratories using modern analytical equipment with access to computer clusters, specialist computer software, online resources, an extensive library and dedicated study areas. All teaching takes place at the university's campus in the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne.
The School of Natural and Environmental Sciences has modern teaching and research facilities along with major research strengths in drug and medicinal chemistry. Our new teaching laboratories, costing £1.9 million, have recently opened.
