The M.Phil. Programme is a full-time course occupying one year and is structured as follows:

  1. Michaelmas Term Students come into College residence in Cambridge in late September/early October, and take three core Chemical Engineering modules and start one core Management of Technology and Innovation (MoTI) module (run by the Judge Business School). In addition, students are expected to take two elective modules taught by other departments within the University.
