Course summary

The Formulation Engineering EngD is a four year postgraduate programme consisting of study and research, mainly based in industry. You will be placed within your sponsoring company and carry out industry-focused research.

This is an EPSRC-sponsored doctoral research and training programme. You combine a research project based in industry with a Masters-level training and development programme. The programme has been recognised by the IChemE as counting towards Chartered Engineer status.

The training element comprises modules in:

  • Fundamental Science
  • Formulation Methods
  • Teambuilding
  • Business Skills
  • Research Skills

There is a choice of over 35 different modules – mostly at Birmingham – but you can also select specialised modules at the Universities of Newcastle, Liverpool, Surrey and Delft. The taught component of the course consists of a 12 week Masters level module covering the fundamental science and engineering behind formulation engineering, as well as business, legal and marketing components. It is intended that most of the modules are taken in the first two years and they are assessed by examination and coursework.

Careers

The programme has a 100 % employment record. A third of the Research Engineers have been recruited by their sponsors, whilst several Research Engineers now work for companies that did not sponsor their project but support the scheme. But more importantly over 89% are still employed in the field of Formulation Engineering.
