About

The Advanced Chemical Engineering with Healthcare Technology programme explores advanced chemical engineering topics with an emphasis on healthcare technology. Our three major research areas – formulation engineering, energy, and healthcare technology – guide the programme.

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 healthcare, pharmaceutical, biotechnological, energy and food and drink sectors. 

This Advanced Chemical Engineering with Healthcare Technology programme focuses on advanced chemical engineering topics that inform the modern process engineering industry, with a focus on healthcare technology topics. 

The three major research areas – healthcare technology, formulation engineering, and energy – guide the programme, with a focus on healthcare.

There is an increasing demand to deliver new technologies that allow us to more rapidly diagnose and better treat patients. Advances in medicine mean we are living longer than ever before, and our chances of survival following devastating, life-changing events are increasing. 

However, these successes lead to major challenges. We've extended life expectancy, but there is no commensurate improvement in the quality of life to match the longer life-span. This demand has led to a rapid increase in the amount of research undertaken to develop new healthcare technologies.

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.

The 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.
