About

This Advanced Chemical Engineering with Energy programme from the University of Birmingham focuses on advanced chemical engineering topics that inform the modern process engineering industry. Our three major research areas – energy, formulation engineering, and healthcare technology – guide the programme, with a focus on energy.

Overview

Chemical engineering is dynamic and evolving, and today extends far beyond its roots in oil and gas processing. The Advanced Chemical Engineering with Energy programme from the University of Birmingham provides solutions to problems facing many sectors, such as energy supply and storage, food, fast-moving consumer goods, pharmaceuticals, and healthcare.

  • The school of Chemical Engineering at the University of Birmingham focuses on research in three areas, answering three major questions of global importance:
  • Energy – How can we reshape energy supply and storage in a sustainable way?
  • Formulation Engineering – How can we develop and produce formulated products such as food or pharmaceuticals with novel properties in a sustainable manner?
  • Healthcare Technology – How can we maintain a healthy aging population?
This programme focuses on exploring the key aspects of chemical engineering that we can use to answer these three questions, with a focus on the production, distribution, storage and use of energy.

Core modules will give you an advanced understanding of advanced chemical engineering principles and concepts relevant to multiple application areas. The wide range of optional modules will allow you to develop expertise in specialist areas, with a focus on energy.

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 chemical engineers in many sectors, including energy.

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
  • Energy
Improving quality of life demands the supply of increasing amounts of energy and consumer chemicals, whilst at the same time global warming has become a major cause for concern. The Energy research theme addresses the challenges of introducing the hydrogen economy to replace the current reliance on carbon-based fuels.
  • Formulation Engineering
We are developing solutions to problems facing industries in the food, pharmaceutical, biotechnological, fast moving consumer goods and speciality products.
  • Healthcare Technologies
Our experts are working together to advance new technologies and treatments that enable people to live longer, healthier and happier lives.
