MSc Chemical Engineering and Process Management explores topics required for a successful career as a chemical engineer. You'll study process management and how this relates to chemical engineering, which is increasingly required in chemicals and petrochemical plants along with solid knowledge in reactor design, process simulation, and the numerous unit operations that take place.

The course has been developed in response to these industry needs and it reflects our strength in research and teaching in this area. We're top 10 in the UK for both student satisfaction and research intensity in Chemical Engineering (Complete University Guide 2019).

If you already have a first degree in chemical engineering you can gain more in-depth knowledge in this discipline as well as explore broader issues through specialist modules relating to project management, the chemical industry, and sustainability. Academic staff in the Division of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering are very research-active in areas such as greener energy, multiphase flow, materials and catalytic reactions.

If you do not have a chemical engineering degree but graduated from a closely related engineering discipline, this course offers you a platform to study chemical engineering and opens a career path for you in the chemical industry.
