Masters of Engineering in Pharmaceutical Process Control and Automation

Course Description

This programme is aimed at graduate engineers who would like to continue their studies and learn about automation and control systems engineering and how they are applied to the process industries. It is also aimed at scientists and engineers who are working in the pharmaceutical and related industries and who would like to move into a control and automation engineering role. This requires knowledge and understanding of the instrumentation used in these industries, how control systems work, how to tune a control loop, and how PLCs, SCADA systems and a DCS are used to monitor and control a highly automated process plant. Knowledge of the process itself and some process engineering are also required along with an understanding of how the industry is regulated and validated. All these issues are covered here.
Course Content

The programme consists of 12 taught modules and a project. Modules are delivered through a mixture of lecture, assignments and laboratory work, e-learning and problem based learning by academics and industrial experts.

Core Modules:

Research Methods
Process Instrumentation
GMP and Validation
Process Automation Engineering
Process Control Engineering
Pharmaceutical Processeses
heat Transfer and Fluid Flow
Reactor Design and Separation Processes I
Advanced Control Engineering

and select from:

Statistical Analysis
Innovation and Knowledge Management

Optional Modules (choose 2):

Separation Processes II
Material Handling and Drying
Mass Transfer Applications
Process Analystical Technology
Faciltity Design and Operation
Computer Systsems Validation
Advanced Automation Engineering

The project module requires completion of a project and a dissertation. Work based projects are encouraged.

Entry Requirements

A minimum of an honours degree at second class honours, lower division (2.2) in an accredited engineering degree.Non-Standard applications: applicants holding a qualification or combination of qualifications deemed by the Institute as being of equivalent standard to the above when taken in conjunction with relevant work experience may also be considered. Some candidates may be required as a condition of entry to take specific modules from the School's Level 8 programme, the Honours Degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering as appropriate bridging modules.
