Course content

This course will build upon your existing scientific/engineering knowledge and skills to convert to a specialisation in chemical engineering. This MSc course will provide you with chemical engineering and process technology skills for exciting and challenging careers in the chemical and related process industries.

The course has been designed to provide a depth of knowledge in core and aspects of advanced chemical engineering and a range of up-to-date process technologies. These will enable you to design, operate and manage processes, and associated manufacturing plants, and to provide leadership in innovation, research and development, and technology transfer.

You’ll undertake a large research project and study a series of compulsory taught modules covering: chemical engineering principles; chemical process technology; chemical reaction processes, separation processes; plant design; batch process engineering; and chemical products design and development.

This course is suitable for graduates of a related engineering or science undergraduate degree, for example in chemistry. If you are a chemical engineering graduate, you might be interested in our Advanced Chemical Engineering MSc.
