About

Suitable for all engineering and applied science graduates, the MSc in Advanced Chemical Engineering will equip you with the skills to address the global chemical engineering challenges of the 21st century. You will develop an advanced understanding of the sustainable supply of clean energy, food and water, through the production of chemicals, functionalised products and fuels. 

Overview

Using our campus pilot plant facilities and benefitting from Cranfield’s strong industry links, you will gain the essential skills and experience to develop a successful global career in a thriving discipline with its high demand for postgraduate level engineers.

The programme is unique in offering two study routes:

  • A general chemical engineering route .
  • A biorefining route (Cranfield is the only UK university to offer an MSc in Advanced Chemical Engineering with biorefining as a dedicated option).

Why this course?

Chemical engineering is a continuously evolving discipline linked to a variety of industries. Chemical engineers lead the design of large-scale facilities in the chemical, petrochemical, and industrial biotechnology sectors.

A distinguished feature of this course is that it is not directed exclusively at chemical engineering graduates. 

This MSc will provide you with the training and knowledge skill set that employers actively seek in a desirable engineering graduate. We recognise the importance of an interdisciplinary approach; as such the core and optional modules and course contents have been carefully developed to meet the engineering skill shortage currently faced within industry. In particular, no other university in the UK offers a MSc in Advanced Chemical Engineering with a dedicated option in Biorefining. 

You will develop the professional profile required by the growing biobased sector (more than 480,000 jobs and annual turnover of about €50 million only in the European Union), with a high level of skills' transferability across the chemical and energy sectors.

Your career

Industry driven research makes our graduates some of the most desirable in the world for recruitment by companies competing in a range of industries, including chemicals, petrochemicals, biochemicals, conventional energy and bioenergy, food, materials, consultancy and management.

Those wishing to continue their education via PhD or MBA studies in the chemical or energy sectors will be greatly facilitated by the interdisciplinary, project-oriented profile that they will have acquired through this course.
