Course content

Our MSc in Advanced Chemical Engineering addresses recent developments in the global chemical industry to provide our graduates with a skill set that puts them amongst the strongest candidates in the field.

This Advanced Chemical Engineering MSc programme is designed to advance your knowledge in chemical and process engineering by focusing on an in-depth understanding of the fundamentals of key chemical and industrial processes and on their application and translation to practice. You will encounter the latest technologies available to the process industries and will be exposed to a broad range of crucial operations and optimisation methods. Exposure to advanced tools and methods is our key to success.

£4 million has been invested in the redevelopment of the department’s laboratories including a pilot plant, computer laboratories, and an ‘igloo’ – a 3D virtual training facility in collaboration with BP. The new STEMLab, a state-of-the-art learning facility, provides a design studio, computer aided engineering studio (class teaching of engineering software), an instruments room, and a range of synthesis, characterisation, processing and bio engineering laboratories.
