About

The Advanced Chemical Engineering with Bioprocessing programme from the University of Birmingham explores advanced chemical engineering topics with an emphasis on bioprocessing – using biological systems to produce useful products.

Overview

This Advanced Chemical Engineering with Bioprocessing programme from 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.
