Course content

The Advanced Chemical Engineering with Information Technology and Management MSc programme addresses recent developments in the global chemical industry by focusing on advancements of information technology and business management skills, including entrepreneurship.

The MSc in Advanced Chemical Engineering with Information Technology and Management builds on the Department of Chemical Engineering’s established strengths in computer modelling, process systems engineering, reaction engineering, numerical modelling, computational fluid dynamics, finite element modelling, process control and development of software for process technologies.

Teaching is augmented by staff from other departments and has an emphasis on design activities. We aim to provide you with an in-depth understanding of the IT skills required for advanced chemical processes and increase your knowledge of the concepts of entrepreneurship, planning a new business, marketing, risk, and financial management and exit strategy.

£4 million has been invested in the redevelopment of the department’s labs including a pilot plant, computer labs, and an ‘igloo’ – a 3D virtual training facility in collaboration with BP, offering an excellent training and learning facility. 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.

Who should study this programme?

Our MSc in Advanced Chemical Engineering with Information Technology and Management is ideal for graduates interested in careers in chemical, biochemical, food, water, energy and pharmaceutical industries as well as consulting and business management. The Advanced Chemical Engineering programme will enable you to develop a high level of industry specific skills, both in computational methods and modelling, as well as in management, to further develop and fine-tune your transferable skills. This places our graduates amongst the strongest in the field.
