Programme information

You will encounter the latest technologies available to the process industries and will be exposed to a broad range of crucial operations. Hands-on exposure is our key to success.
 
The programme uses credit accumulation and offers advanced modules covering a broad range of modern process engineering, technical and management topics.
 
Core study areas include applied engineering practice, downstream processing, research and communication, applied heterogeneous catalysis and a research project.
 
The research project is conducted over two semesters and involves individual students working closely with a member of the academic staff on a topic of current interest. Recent examples, include water purification by advanced oxidation processes, affinity separation of metals, pesticides and organics from drinking water, biodiesel processing and liquid mixing in pharmaceutical reactors.

Entry qualification

Minimum upper second class (2:1) honours degree in engineering or physical sciences.

Careers and further study

Our graduates go on to work with companies such as 3M, GE Water, GL Noble Denton, GSK, Kraft Food, Tata Steel Group, Petroplus, Shell, Pharmaceutical World and Unilever. Some students further their studies by enrolling on a PhD programme.
