Chemical engineering is dynamic and evolving, and today extends far beyond its roots in oil and gas processing. It provides many solutions to problems facing the biotechnological, pharmaceutical, healthcare, energy and food and drink sectors.
Biological processes are increasingly important in modern chemical engineering, from production of biopharmaceuticals such as insulin, the industrial switch from chemical engineering.
This Advanced Chemical Engineering with Bioprocessing programme from the University of Birmingham focuses on exploring the key aspects of bioprocessing and chemical engineering that we can use to answer these three questions.
Core modules will give you an advanced understanding of bioprocessing and chemical engineering principles. 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 biochemical engineers and chemical engineers in many sectors.
