Course content

The course is accredited by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) – the global professional membership organisation for chemical engineering professionals.

It's designed specifically for graduates of related science and engineering disciplines who are working in chemical and process industries, with all of the taught content delivered online via our virtual learning environment. The first semester focusses on Chemical Engineering fundamentals, as a refresher for those who have a Chemical Engineering background, and conversion for students of other science and engineering disciplines. Your work based final project will be supervised by one of our world class academics and will give you the opportunity to apply your learning to a real-world problem that is relevant to your employer.

You may choose to exit the course with a postgraduate diploma after two years, or postgraduate certificate at the end of the first year. You may transfer between MSc Chemical Technology and Management and MSc Advanced Chemical and Process Engineering, provided that you do so before the end of the first semester.
