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.

Postgraduate students and research students should apply through our dedicated application system. Full details of how to do this are supplied on our How to apply section for postgraduate students and our How to apply section for research students.
Students should apply for accommodation at London South Bank University (LSBU) as soon as possible, once we have made an offer of a place on one of our academic courses.
It's a good idea to think about how you'll pay university tuition and maintenance costs while you're still applying for a place to study. Remember – you don't need to wait for a confirmed place on a course to start applying for student finance.
Postgraduate Application Service
Book a session with one of our specialist Postgraduate Advisors. Over a one on one Advice Session, they'll advise you on postgraduate degrees at LSBU that match your interests and experience.
Prepare to start
We help our students prepare for university even before the semester starts. To find out when you should apply for your LSBU accommodation or student finance read How to apply tab for this course.
Before you start your course we’ll send you information on what you’ll need to do before you arrive and during your first few days on campus. You can read about the process on our Welcome Week pages.
