Course content

Modern society relies on the work of chemical, and in particular process, engineers. They play a major role in developing the technologies that make available most of the products we desire or depend on in everyday life and provide the expertise and technology to enhance our health and standard of living.

Process engineering is multidisciplinary and often involves close collaboration between engineers and scientists with different backgrounds. Our MSc programme is specifically designed to facilitate this collaboration, providing graduates from a variety of engineering and science disciplines with the advanced training necessary to enter the chemical and related process industries.

Building on the students\' first degrees, the programme allows developing the in-depth knowledge and transferable skills required for highly-skilled jobs in the process engineering sector. Relying on an integrated approach to chemical engineering that encourages the application of core principles to problems of current and future industrial relevance, the programme aims to form independent and self-directed engineers, aware of the context of their work and able to of have a positive impact in their future profession.
