Summary

Our Sustainable Chemical Engineering MSc, PGDip gives scientists and engineers with an understanding of sustainable engineering practices the opportunity to work with researchers in the field of new energy technologies. This includes areas such as fuel cells and gasification, process intensification and new advanced materials.

The course meets the growing need for engineers skilled in material and process engineering. It highlights the potential of sustainable engineering and provides an understanding of the environmental, economic and social issues associated with the operation of industrial processes.

It is intended for honours graduates with an engineering or chemical science based degree who wish to learn how to apply their knowledge to sustainable chemical and process engineering design.

You will gain specialist knowledge and understanding via lecture classes, seminars and personal supervision. The course uses taught modules in a variety of topics, including:
•sustainable design and manufacture
•renewable energy
•energy management
•materials.

In addition, you will benefit from the use of industrial case studies and visiting speakers. Academics, such as Dr Sue Haile, work with you and are responsible for supervising your final projects. The course is delivered by the School of Chemical Engineering and Advanced Materials.

Placements:

You will have a unique opportunity to complete a three month work placement with a local company or research organisation. Projects vary from examining the sustainability of existing or new processes, to environmental assessment and energy efficiency, and examination of Carbon Reduction Potential versus the Potential Risk.

Facilities:

The School of Chemical Engineering and Advanced Materials has a wide range of attractive facilities.

The School occupies five floors in Merz Court, and we provide a Student Common Room and a separate Student Study Space.
