Summary

This Advanced Chemical Engineering with Formulation programme focuses on advanced chemical engineering topics that inform the modern process engineering industry. Our three major research areas – formulation engineering, energy, and healthcare technology – guide the programme.

Chemical engineering is dynamic and evolving, and today extends far beyond its roots in oil and gas processing. It provides solutions to problems facing many sectors, such as energy supply and storage, food, fast-moving consumer goods, pharmaceuticals, and healthcare.

This programme focuses on advanced chemical engineering topics that inform the modern process engineering industry. Our three major research areas – formulation engineering, energy, and healthcare technology – guide the programme. We explore concepts and processes that are applicable to multiple sectors, such as food, fuel, energy, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, and chemical industries. Our graduates are well prepared for a career in a variety of industries and have an opportunity to capitalise on the growing global demand for chemical engineers.

The school of Chemical Engineering at the University of Birmingham focuses on research in three areas, answering three major questions of global importance:

  • Formulation Engineering – How can we develop and produce formulated products such as food or pharmaceuticals with novel properties in a sustainable manner?

  • Healthcare Technology – How can we maintain a healthy aging population?

  • Energy – How can we reshape energy supply and storage in a sustainable way?

This programme focuses on exploring the key aspects of chemical engineering that we can use to answer these three questions, with a focus on formulation engineering.

Core modules will give you an advanced understanding of advanced chemical engineering principles and concepts relevant to multiple application areas. The wide range of optional modules will allow you to develop expertise in specialist areas.

The research project (MSc only) will allow you to undertake independent research with world-leading research teams within the school. Our graduates are well prepared for a career in a variety of industries and have an opportunity to capitalise on the growing global demand for chemical engineers in many sectors, including formulation engineering.
