The MSc Chemical Engineering course provides the additional training companies now expect from the next generation of chemical engineers, producing highly competent graduates with the potential to be future leaders of industry.
The course is accredited by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) and is designed to meet the UK-SPEC requirements of the IChemE for those students who already hold a BEng, BSc or non-accredited chemical engineering degree and wish to proceed to chartered status.
You will gain skills in advanced engineering practice, which includes design, operations, problem-solving and practical elements. The advanced practice is centred on themes in energy and environmental applications, so you can also gain significant experience in areas such as petroleum processing, energy efficiency, carbon capture and water treatment.Key facts
* Relevance to industry is a strong feature of this course, with a high proportion of the teaching staff being chartered engineers and/or having relevant industrial experience, as well as ongoing research links to industry.
* Many of the projects carried out are sponsored by industry, and industrial sponsorship has been obtained over the years to help improve facilities.
* The department boasts extensive laboratory facilities and significant pilot plant and industrial scale chemical processing equipment.
* Offering a unique combination of engineering and science skills, the department provides a strong and dynamic environment with close links between research and teaching.
The course follows a modular structure, with students completing 180 credits over a 12-month period. Students take 50 credits of core modules, 40 credits of optional modules, a 30-credit development project providing skills in advanced design practice and a 60-credit summer project which develops skills in research.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
