Advanced Chemical Engineering Masters/MSc/Diploma


Course Description

Chemical engineering now extends beyond its traditional roots in oil and gas processing. In this course you will learn about the aspects of chemical engineering that deal with the design and development of formulated products such as food and pharmaceuticals.

This programme comprises 12 short-course taught modules (six core and six optional) and a research project carried out with one of the department's research teams (MSc only).The programme has options in Food Processing, Pharmaceutical Technology and Business Studies.

Core modules

Multidisciplinary core modules cover the fundamental science and engineering underpinning the design of sophisticated formulated products. Depending upon your academic background, you will begin by studying the fundamental principles of either chemical engineering or the relevant biological science.

Further core modules deal with topics such as:
-Modern molecular biology
-Advanced techniques for material characterisation
-Interfacial physics and chemistry
-Structured fluids
-Molecular delivery

Optional modules
A wide range of optional modules enables you to gain specific knowledge relating to food and/or pharmaceutical product development. You may also choose to study business and management modules, or develop mathematical modelling skills.

The programme can be studied full-time over one year, or part-time over two or three years. Modules are also available individually to fulfil continuing professional development needs.
