The MSc Process Safety offers a specialisation route for chemical engineering graduates, or a conversion route for non-chemical engineering graduates.
The standard requirement for admission will be a 2.2 or higher first degree in engineering or a physical science from a UK university, or equivalent degree from overseas. Entrants from a science route must, by their degree or otherwise, be sufficiently prepared for the mathematical content of the course. Applicants must also meet the University's standard requirement for English, i.e. IELTS 6.5, TOEFL 580 or equivalent.
Months of entry
MSc Process Safety explores topics which cover a wide range of disciplines in relation to process safety, such as; process control, process reliability, human factors in system design and control, engineering ethics, occupational health, environmental impacts as well as toxicology, fires and explosions, safety procedures and design, and relief systems.
You will also study process management and how it can support the implementation and management of safety procedures/systems in chemical processes. The course has been developed in response to the growing interest in process safety, strongly supportive feedback from our graduates, and our strengths in research and teaching within this area, including the expertise in Fire and Explosion Research Group.
