About

The Advanced Chemical Engineering with Information Technology and Management programme taught at Loughborough University addresses recent developments in the global chemical industry by focusing on advancements of information technology and business management skills, including entrepreneurship.

Overview

The Advanced Chemical Engineering with Information Technology and Management programme taught at Loughborough University builds on the Department of Chemical Engineering’s established strengths in computer modelling, process systems engineering, reaction engineering, numerical modelling, computational fluid dynamics, finite element modelling, process control and development of software for process technologies.

Teaching is augmented by staff from other departments and has an emphasis on design activities. We aim to provide you with an in-depth understanding of the IT skills required for advanced chemical processes and increase your knowledge of the concepts of entrepreneurship, planning a new business, marketing, risk, and financial management and exit strategy.

£4 million has been invested in the redevelopment of the department’s labs including a pilot scale and computer labs, and an ‘igloo’ – a 3D virtual training facility in collaboration with BP, offering an excellent training and learning facility.

A £17 million investment, the new STEMLab, a state-of-the-art learning facility provides a Design studio, and computer aided engineering studio (class teaching of engineering software), an instruments room, and a range of synthesis, characterisation, processing and bio engineering labs.
