The Advanced Chemical Engineering programme offered at University of Birmingham focuses on exploring the aspects of chemical engineering that deal with the design and development of formulated products, such as food and pharmaceuticals. 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 the autumn and spring semesters, you will study 5 compulsory core modules and 60 credits of optional modules. In the summer semester, each student on the MSc programme will then undertake an individual project in a research area of their choice within one of the School’s internationally recognised research groups.
The multidisciplinary core modules cover the fundamental science and engineering underpinning the design of sophisticated formulated products. Depending upon your academic background, you will begin by studying the fundamental principles of either chemical engineering or the relevant biological science.
A wide range of optional modules enables you to gain specific knowledge relating to fuel cells, food and/or pharmaceutical product development. Safety, regulatory and quality issues applicable across the relevant industries are also considered. Core skill modules are topics that may be applied across all themed areas.
You may also choose to study business and management modules, or develop mathematical modelling skills.
There is a great demand for chemical engineers in industry worldwide. This course gives you a professional basis for a career in a variety of industries.
Our Careers Network offers a range of events and support services designed to help you maximise your employability: from networking opportunities and career coaching workshops, to our effective-careers-strategy toolkit and one-to-one guidance. We also offer subject specific careers consultants and advisers for each college and a dedicated careers website for international students.
