Course summary

Course description

Modern chemical engineering is a vast subject extending far beyond its traditional roots in oil and gas processing. As well as dealing with chemical reactors, distillation and the numerous processes that take place in a chemical or petrochemical plant, there is an increasing need for chemical engineers able to design and develop formulated products and to have knowledge of biotechnology and environmental issues.

If you already have a first degree in chemical engineering you can study the discipline in greater depth as well as learning about broader issues through the choice of elective subjects.
If you are already working in industry or are planning to work in a particular area, then this course can be tailored to focus on issues related to those of direct concern to you.

Who will benefit from the course?

Those who already have a background in chemical engineering but who wish to obtain a higher level qualification from a top-ranking British university.
Those who wish to enhance their career prospects in a chemical industry.

Teaching and learning

We use modern, innovative teaching and learning methods which have proved extremely successful and are enjoyed by our students. Much of the source materials and study aids are available through Blackboard (the University's web learning package) which has the advantage of enabling you to carry out much of your study when and where you want. You take part in face-to-face lectures, seminars and laboratory classes.

The Dissertation Project forms a major part of the MSc course and provides useful practice in carrying out academic research and writing in an area that you are interested in. You have the opportunity to study a chosen topic in depth - you can choose one of the challenging topical projects available through the University or if you are employed can base your project on an aspect of your current job or employer's business.

The course helps you to develop valuable transferable skills such as report writing, data analysis and presentation skills - these are all invaluable for your career development.

Coursework and assessment

Assessment is a combination of examinations and written coursework assignments. For the MSc a major part of the assessment is through an in-depth project which is written up as a formal dissertation report.
