Pharmaceutical production is an increasingly important sector within Chemical
Engineering. This course provides a wide range of modules to enhance the knowledge needed for a career in the pharmaceutical engineering industry, for example pharmaceutical processes engineering, molecules of drugs in necessary dosage forms through a human body, pharmaceutical process chemistry and technology, formulation of drugs, quality analytical techniques, and physical chemistry associated with pharmaceutical processes.
As well as covering basic and advanced aspects of the domain of pharmaceutical engineering areas, you will undertake laboratory experimental practice associated with industrial pharmaceutical process research and development. If you have a non-chemical engineering background you will take options in process engineering which introduce the underlying concepts. If you have a chemical engineering background you will undertake the process engineering modules at an advanced level.
You will study taught modules covering: drugs, processes, products and people; pharmaceutical product formulation; pharmaceutical analytical techniques; batch process engineering; process chemistry and chemical technology; physical organic process chemistry.
As well as studying taught modules, you will also undertake a research project which is chosen by you and linked to the main research areas of the staff. Alternatively you may propose your own project. In all cases a member of staff is assigned as supervisor.
A minimum of a UK second class (2.2) honours degree or equivalent in chemical engineering or a related engineering or science discipline. Appropriate industrial experience at a professional level will also be considered.
