University of Sheffield, Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering Masters Degrees

We have 6 University of Sheffield, Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering Masters Degrees

The Chemical and Biological Engineering Department of Sheffield University have been at the forefront of environmental, energy and combustion technology for over fifty years. The group consists of some of the most well-known, respected and influential workers in the field and has produced many innovative ideas and patents.

The Department is part of the Faculty of Engineering - one of the largest in the country. We are justifiably proud of our facilities, which include up-to-date laboratories, extensive computing facilities and a very modern, purpose built applied science library. New Biological Systems laboratories became operational in the Autumn of 2003 and the Biological and Environmental Systems Research Group has recently spent £1.5 million on new equipment. Extensive new environmental laboratories opened in 2004.

Whether you are a new graduate wishing to specialise in environmental/energy technology or already in the industry wanting to deepen your knowledge, our courses at the University of Sheffield have much to offer.

Chemical Engineering occupies a modern building with four lecture theatres and numerous well-equipped laboratories for postgraduate work. In addition there are extensive computer facilities. We encourage a friendly and informal atmosphere in the Department. A central lounge serves as a focal point for both undergraduate and postgraduate activities, offering coffee and television facilities. Students in the Department run a flourishing society which organises industrial visits, social and sporting events.

The Department has a worldwide reputation for its broad range of innovative research and benefits from having its own research station in the Derbyshire countryside. Current projects include the development of a new high temperature heat exchange system for improved power generation, exploration of new hydrogen production strategies for the hydrogen economy, advanced computer modelling of toxic waste incinerators and the development of techniques for studying the impact of global warming on upland grasslands. A major challenge of modern engineering is the development of inherently safe and environment friendly processes. The Department places special emphasis on both of these areas.

Our graduates are particularly well suited to address environmental issues. A fundamental knowledge of the technology of chemical processing and energy usage is combined with an understanding of the localised and global impact of process effluent emission and resource depletion.

Teaching in the Department is by a combination of lectures, tutorials, hands-on computer and laboratory classes and project work. We highlight computer literacy, which is of increasing importance to the modern engineer.
