This course is taught through a series of core and optional modules delivered within the School of Chemical and Environmental Engineering.
Opportunities exist to specialise through the selection of optional modules as you become more aware of your likely career development.
Over the summer period towards the end of the course, you will complete a dissertation / project on a subject of your choice. This is an opportunity to complete a major piece of independent research under the guidance of a suitable supervisor.
Many of the projects undertaken on this course attract industrial sponsorship and reflect the requirements of industry. These projects will help you develop vital skills in research, project management, problem solving and reporting.
The MSc in Chemical Engineering is taught on a full-time basis over one year, starting in late September.
You will need to complete a total of 180 credits to pass the course – 120 credits’ worth of taught modules and a 60-credit dissertation.
The course utilises an integrated educational approach in which lectures, example classes, laboratories and information technology form key elements.
