Course content

You’ll study a series of compulsory modules which will build your knowledge of chemical engineering principles, chemical products design and development, separation processes, chemical process technology, chemical reaction processes and batch process engineering.

Your team design project will give you the skills and practical experience necessary to contribute to major industrial multi-disciplinary design projects. Your team will plan and execute the project, identify and analyse key issues in materials science and engineering that will affect the project’s success, and deliver final recommendations.

Every student undertakes a research project that runs throughout the year. You’ll focus on a topic of your choice that fits within one of the School’s research areas and produce an independent study, reflecting the knowledge and skills you’ve acquired. This will enable you to gain experience of planning, executing and reporting a research work of the type you will undertake in an industrial/academic environment.
