Course summary

Process engineers are among the most demanded engineers across multiple sectors, due to the flexibility of their skillset. They can design, optimise and operate industrial processes, as well as lead engineering projects. MSc in Advanced Process Engineering integrates applied learning experience with internationally-recognised research, professional development, career mentoring and teamwork to transform you into the engineering leader who will solve global challenges.

You will develop relevant employability skills to become a successful process engineer in any sector that utilise process engineering, including energy and power, nuclear, chemical, petrochemical, water, food and drink, and pharmaceutical industries. You will also become a member of Cranfield Process Engineering team and will work with us to solve global challenges through real-life assignments and projects.

Who is it for?

The Advanced Process Engineering MSc is ideal for candidates with engineering and applied science background who want to dedicate their career to solving global challenges via process engineering. Process engineers play a pivotal role in contributing to meeting emission reduction targets and, subsequently, global warming mitigation.

We recognise that process engineering is an inherently multi-disciplinary and, therefore, complex field of study. This course is specifically designed for those seeking a career in design and development, research and development, operation and management of process engineering systems in the industry, government or research organisations.

This course will equip you with an advanced process engineering knowledge, as well as applied analytical, problem-solving and communication skills that are crucial to your successful career as a process engineer or project engineer.

You will become proficient in the use of state-of-the-art approaches that are applied throughout the process development process to deal with the major operational and design challenges. You will receive the up-to-date technical knowledge and develop skills required for achieving the best management, design, control and operation of efficient process systems.

Your career

The Advanced Process Engineering MSc is designed to provide you with the skills, knowledge and expertise required to develop a successful career in any sector, including energy and power, nuclear, chemical, petrochemical, water, food and drink, and pharmaceutical industries. We aim to influence your career development from day one. This course will enable you to apply your learning through applied modules and real-life assignments, industrially-relevant group and individual research projects; while equipping you with the engineering and management skills you need to make an immediate impact in your career.
