Course summary

Overview

MSc Process Safety explores topics which cover a wide range of disciplines in relation to process safety, such as; process control, process reliability, human factors in system design and control, engineering ethics, occupational health, environmental impacts as well as toxicology, fires and explosions, safety procedures and design, and relief systems.

You will also study process management and how it can support the implementation and management of safety procedures/systems in chemical processes. The course has been developed in response to the growing interest in process safety, strongly supportive feedback from our graduates, and our strengths in research and teaching within this area, including the expertise in Fire and Explosion Research Group.

Employability

The principles and skills conveyed by the course will help students develop critical thinking and independent inquiry aptitudes which will enable them to be independent and competent practitioners in their professional life.

The contents of the module will help graduates find employment in the chemical engineering industry, oil and gas industry, energy sector, engineering design, renewable energy and pharmaceuticals industry.

Professional links

The division has a wide range of links through the A2i projects where SME work in consultation with the division, large multi-nationals such as Bosch, local companies that include site visits to Thames Water and working with Sellafield.

Teaching and learning

The teaching team in the Division of Chemical and Energy Engineering are experienced and enthusiastic about their teaching and research. We are a multidisciplinary team with expertise in chemical engineering, energy engineering, and materials engineering, some with industrial experience.

All modules are taught through a combination of three or more of lectures, tutorials, computer workshop, laboratory practical, seminars and group work which deliver the intended knowledge and understanding, and intellectual/practical/transferrable skills.

You will be encouraged to attend the seminars/events such as those organised externally by IChemE and research seminars at LSBU. Invited guest lectures from industry will deliver presentations at LSBU on relevant and current topics.

All modules apart from Dissertation are assessed through both examination and individual/group coursework, most with the weightings of 60% examination and 40% coursework.

The dissertation is based on 100% coursework where a series of report submission, presentations and viva are parts of the assessment.

Your personal tutor is assigned during the first few weeks of starting the course when the details of all students on the course are clear. Your personal tutor will be your first point of contact should you have any question about the course, academic regulations and the university facilities to support your studies.
