The M.Phil. Programme is a full-time course occupying one year and is structured as follows:
1. Michaelmas Term Students come into College residence in Cambridge in late September/early October, and take three core Chemical Engineering modules and start one core Management of Technology and Innovation (MoTI) module (run by the Judge Business School). In addition, students are expected to take two elective modules taught by other departments within the University.
2. Lent Term Students take one core Chemical Engineering module and three elective modules, and complete the MoTI module by undertaking a consultancy project for a UK client organisation.
3. March - August During this period students undertake a full-time research project within the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, the results of which are submitted as a dissertation. The research projects are supervised by University staff members, and students will be required to plan and execute their own work. The projects may include extensive industrial collaboration.

The objectives of this Programme are to:
1. provide students with advanced technical skills in chemical engineering;
2. enable students to solve problems within a technical consulting environment;
3. provide students with business skills and a knowledge of entrepreneurship; and
4. provide training in research.
Modules are taught by a combination of formal lectures, demonstrations, discussion classes and example problems, and students are expected to devote at least four evenings per week to private study. The taught material enhances basic knowledge on Chemical Engineering fundamentals, as well as offering experience of other science and business based disciplines. The courses are assessed by both unseen examination and written coursework.
During the first two Terms, students take ten taught modules. Each module usually contains at least 16 hours of contact time (lectures, tutorials, etc.) and students are expected to spend at least four evenings per week on private study and coursework preparation.
During the taught component, students may normally receive up to 2 hours of supervision per core module taken. During the research component, students will normally meet with their supervisor for at least one hour per week.
Students are asked to attend studies meetings with the Programme Manager at the end of Michaelmas Term to discuss any academic-related issues. During the taught component, students are normally provided with feedback on any coursework assignments submitted for assessment. During the research component, feedback is normally provided on a continual basis by the research supervisor.
- Thesis -
Students undertake a full-time research project within the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, the results of which are submitted as a dissertation. An oral examination may also be held.
The assessment of taught modules involves a combination of some or all of the following:
- Coursework - individual or group
- Class participation
- Written and oral examinations
- Presentations - individual or group.
The one year M.Phil. ACE course cannot be counted as one year of a Ph.D. research degree, although continuing students wishing to apply for a Ph.D. are normally expected to obtain at least 70% overall for the M.Phil. ACE course.
