Course content

The MSc in Biofuels Process Engineering has been carefully structured to equip talented engineers of the highest standard with an advanced understanding and practical experience of employing biofuel research and advanced process technology within the wider bioenergy industry. Currently no other university in the UK offers a dedicated MSc course in Biofuels Process Engineering. This MSc provides you with the training and knowledge skill set that employers actively seek in a desirable engineering graduate. We recognise the importance of an interdisciplinary approach, as such the compulsory modules and course contents have been carefully developed to meet the engineering skill shortage currently faced within industry. Upon successful completion you will possess unique multidisciplinary skills required to design, optimise, and manage bioenergy and biofuel process applications. Knowledge and understanding are further enhanced by seminars that are delivered by invited industrial or academic experts and site visits.
