Postgraduate combined research and teaching degree programme in Formulation Engineering EngD:
This is an EPSRC-sponsored doctoral research and training programme. You combine a research project based in industry with a Masters-level training and development programme.
The EngD Studentships at the School of Chemical Engineering programme has a 100% employment record and has been recognised by the IChemE as counting towards Chartered Engineer status.
Chemical Engineering is dynamic and evolving. It provides many solutions to problems facing industries in the pharmaceutical, biotechnological, oil, energy and food and drink sectors. It is vital to many issues affecting our quality of life; such as better and more economical processes to reduce the environmental burden, and more delicious and longer lasting food due to the right combination of chemistry, ingredients and processing.
The training element comprises modules in:
There is a choice of over 35 different modules – mostly at Birmingham – but you can also select specialised modules at the Universities of Newcastle, Liverpool, Surrey and Delft.
Companies participating in the scheme are involved in modern process engineering and the formulation of multiphase structured materials (foods, bioproducts, pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals and fine minerals). They range from blue chip multinationals such as Unilever, Rolls Royce, Cargill, Johnson Matthey, Imerys and Procter & Gamble to SMEs such as Green Biodiesel, Tornex and Mast Carbon.
The programme has a 100 % employment record. A third of the Research Engineers have been recruited by their sponsors, whilst several Research Engineers now work for companies that did not sponsor their project but support the scheme. But more importantly over 70% are still employed in the field of Formulation Engineering.
