Course summary

Develop a successful chemical engineering career

Suitable for all engineering and applied science graduates, the MSc in Advanced Chemical Engineering will equip you with the skills to address the global chemical engineering challenges of the 21st century. You will develop an advanced understanding of the sustainable supply of clean energy, food and water, through the production of chemicals, functionalised products and fuels. Using our campus pilot plant facilities and benefitting from Cranfield’s strong industry links, you will gain the essential skills and experience to develop a successful global career in a thriving discipline with its high demand for postgraduate level engineers. The MSc of this course is accredited by The Energy Institute.

The programme is unique in offering two study routes:

  • A general chemical engineering route.
  • A biorefining route (Cranfield is the only UK university to offer an MSc in Advanced Chemical Engineering with biorefining as a dedicated option).

Who is it for?

A distinguishing feature of this course is that it is not exclusively designed for chemical engineering graduates. Suitable for all engineering and applied science graduates, this MSc will provide you with the skill sets that employers actively seek in highly desirable engineering graduates; enabling you to embark on a successful career as a chemical engineering professional in industry, government or research.

You will learn state of the art chemical engineering methods; apply them to real world problems via industrially focused modules and research projects, whilst gaining the essential management skills to bring your ideas to life.

The general chemical engineering route equips you with diversified skills in advanced engineering, which includes theoretical and practical elements in operation, design and control of a wide range of chemical processes.

The biorefining route equips you with a fundamental understanding of chemical engineering and solid skills to address the challenges of the rapidly growing and dynamic bioenergy sector. This option covers the sustainable production of heat, power and fuels from biomass within the biorefining framework.

Your career

The Advanced Chemical Engineering MSc is based on Cranfield’s industry driven research, which makes our graduates some of the most desirable in the world for recruitment by companies competing in a range of industries, including chemicals, petrochemicals, biochemicals, conventional energy and bioenergy, food, materials, consultancy and management.

Those wishing to continue their education via PhD or MBA studies in the chemical or energy sectors will be well prepared by the interdisciplinary, project-oriented profile that they will have acquired through this course.

Students can also exit with PGDip and PGCert awards.
