Chemical engineers and chemical engineering plays a pivotal role in net-zero energy transition and the future of the planet, alongside mitigating the impact of traditional oil and gas. This is because industrial decarbonisation around the globe will heavily rely on availability of affordable low-carbon sources of energy and the development of hydrogen as a clean fuel for example, advanced energy conversion and storage technologies, as well as carbon capture, storage and utilisation.
Chemical engineers possess the unique set of skills to imagine, design, optimise and commercialise such innovative technologies in the drive to achieve net zero. Want to become one of them? Join the Advanced Chemical Engineering programme at Cranfield University and work alongside world-leading chemical engineering experts actively engaged in researching and developing the innovative materials and processes essential for net-zero energy transition.
We promote applied approach to learning. Using our world-class campus pilot plant facilities and benefiting from Cranfield’s strong industry links, you will gain the essential skills and experience to develop a successful career in a thriving discipline with its high demand for postgraduate level engineers. You will also benefit from professional development, career mentoring and teamwork to transform you into the engineering leader who will solve global challenges.
The Advanced Chemical Engineering MSc is based on Cranfield’s industry driven research, which makes our graduates some of the most desirable in the world for recruitment by companies competing in a range of industries, including conventional and clean energy, materials, environments, biorefining, biochemicals, petrochemicals, waste management and consultancy and management.
Those wishing to continue their education via PhD or MBA studies in the chemical or energy sectors will be well prepared by the interdisciplinary, project-oriented profile that they will have acquired through this course.
