Chemical engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with manufacture of products through chemical processes and the technologies of chemical production. This study field is based on combination of physical sciences, life sciences, mathematics and economics. Chemical engineering differs from chemistry because of focusing on large scales. This study field has two groups: the first group deals with chemical processes (design, manufacture and operation of plants and machinery), while the second group deals with new substances development. Graduates can work at various industries, especially oil and petrochemical industry, nuclear energy, food production, development of new sources of energy and medicine.
The MSc in Petroleum Engineering programme aims at broadening, strengthening and integrating knowledge and understanding of the oil and gas industry processes. You'll learn the mathematics, science, computer-based methods, design, and engineering practice to solve petroleum engineering problems of varying complexity, taking in consideration the economic, social and environmental context.
The Nordic Master in Macromolecular Materials, Polymer Technology track provides students with the comprehensive tools needed to develop future materials for advanced health care, energy production, green packaging, surface coatings and many other applications. Students study at two universities, graduate with a double degree and acquire comprehensive skills is polymer technology. The programme was developed to take advantage of the strengths and research specialisations of each member university.
The principal aim of the program is to produce graduates who are highly competent in research and development work in engineering.
If you want to become a professional engineer, and have a three-year engineering degree but no work experience, the Master of Engineering will get you there.
If you want to extend your knowledge within a certain engineering field and already have a three-year degree in science engineering or technology, our Graduate Certificate of Engineering Technology is a perfect match for you.
The Master’s Foundation Programme is available as a one, two or three-term programme, with guaranteed progression to a wide range of Computing, Engineering and Sciences Master’s degrees at UCLan. You will live and study your Foundation programme at our state-of-the-art Centre located at the heart of the UCLan campus.
The Smart Healthcare master aims to educate technologists capable of responding to the new challenges of health management, maximizing the potential of ICT. These technologists must acquire knowledge in different disciplines-primarily Artificial Intelligence, care processes, quality management and standards-in order to respond to current challenges in health services.
Excellence in Analytical Chemistry (EACH) is an international two-year joint Master’s degree programme that gives students a unique opportunity to study at two outstanding European universities. The programme provides strong knowledge and skills in both fundamental and applied aspects of modern analytical chemistry.
Are you interested in an internationally recognized degree in chemical engineering? Chemical engineering involves the transformation of energy and raw materials into valuable and useful products. Maybe you would like to study topics related to oil and gas processing, or to specialize in CO2 separation?
The oil and gas industry is continuously developing and is therefore both recognised and expected to remain as a major contributor to the economy of many developed and developing regions as it continues to be driven not only by new oil and gas discoveries, but by a constant demand to find newer, safer, more efficient and cost-effective ways of extracting resources. Whilst exploration continues to identify major oil and gas finds across the world, these are increasingly less accessible and require complex engineering solutions to deliver effective operations and supply. Additionally, the significant and rising operating costs of existing installations are driving the sector to seek suitably qualified engineers are able to support operations and initiate improvements within the four main strands of oil and gas facilities: offshore, onshore, sub-sea and pipelines.
The Oil and Gas Management MSc degree course is ideal for those interested in a career (or already working) in the energy and hydrocarbon industry. The course is designed to equip graduates with the expertise required for leadership and management in the world’s fastest growing and dynamic sectors.
This course is offered to engineering technologists wishing to upgrade their qualifications within specific areas of engineering: Chemical Engineering; Civil Engineering; Electrical and Electronics Engineering; Mechanical Engineering.
