Course content

From carbon capture to sustainable water resources, from alternative energy technologies to advanced pharmaceutical processes, chemical engineers address the frontiers of important global challenges. A one year programme at the University of Edinburgh will immerse you in the most current developments in these fields through a combination of taught modules, workshops, a research dissertation and a number of supporting activities, with a particular emphasis on multi-scale approaches to chemical engineering from nano-scale to process scale.

A unique feature of the programme is a strong involvement of the chemical engineering industry. The programme is advised by an Industrial Board of Experts, while summer research dissertation projects are formulated and co-advised by industrial partners, with topics ranging from computational fluid dynamics for medical applications to carbon capture and storage to continuous manufacturing for the pharmaceutical industry.
