Our Chemical Engineering MSc will equip you with a multidisciplinary knowledge of chemical engineering in areas such as fuel cells, control, intensification and sustainability. It is intended for honours graduates with a chemical engineering degree who wish to advance their knowledge in the chemical and process engineering design.
The course meets the industry’s growing need for chemical engineers and provides an understanding of theory and its application in an economic and environmentally suitable way. It gives scientists and engineers the opportunity to work with researchers in the fields of new energy technologies and new advanced materials.
You will gain specialist knowledge and understanding via lectures, seminars and personal supervision. You will develop an understanding of:
- chemical processes
- model based approaches to process control and measurement
- process intensification and modelling
- latest research developments in chemical engineering
The course is delivered by the School of Engineering. Hear first-hand from our students about studying with us in our postgraduate video.
Quality and Ranking
We rank in the top 150 for Chemical Engineering - QS World University Rankings by Subject 2019
We are seeking Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) accreditation, so you can be assured that you will graduate with a degree that meets the standards set out by the chemical engineering industry.
You will have a unique opportunity to complete a three month work placement with a local company or research organisation. Projects vary from examining the sustainability of existing or new processes, to environmental assessment and energy efficiency, and examination of Carbon Reduction Potential versus the Potential Risk.
The School of Engineering has a wide range of attractive facilities. The School occupies five floors in Merz Court, and we provide a Student Common Room and a separate Student Study Space.
