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

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.

Employability

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. Further information is below.

Programme Structure

Research Themes
