Course content

The Advanced Process Engineering programme advances students’ knowledge in 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.

Hands-on exposure is our key to success.

The programme uses credit accumulation and offers advanced modules covering a broad range of modern process engineering, technical and management topics.

Core study areas include applied engineering practice, downstream processing, research and communication, applied heterogeneous catalysis and a research project.

The research project is conducted over two semesters and involves individual students working closely with a member of the academic staff on a topic of current interest. Recent examples, include water purification by advanced oxidation processes, affinity separation of metals, pesticides and organics from drinking water, biodiesel processing and liquid mixing in pharmaceutical reactors.
