Chemical Engineering is key in addressing global challenges relating to sustainable supply of clean energy, food and water, through the production of chemicals, functionalised products and fuels.
The Advanced Chemical Engineering programme at Cranfield University offers two elective study routes. The general chemical engineering option covers core chemical engineering subjects with a focus on theoretical and practical elements in operation, design and control of a wide range of chemical processes. The biorefining route provides advanced understanding of the production of bioenergy and biofuels while strengthening the knowledge on chemical engineering discipline. Cranfield’s strong reputation and links with industry provide outstanding opportunities to secure interesting jobs and develop successful careers.
Industry driven research makes our graduates some of the most desirable in the world for recruitment by companies competing in a range of industries, including chemicals, petrochemicals, biochemicals, conventional energy and bioenergy, food, materials, consultancy and management.
Those wishing to continue their education via PhD or MBA studies in the chemical or energy sectors will be greatly facilitated by the interdisciplinary, project-oriented profile that they will have acquired through this course.
