The Sustainable Chemical Engineering programme from Newcastle University meets the growing need for engineers skilled in material and process engineering. It highlights the potential of sustainable engineering and provides an understanding of the environmental, economic and social issues associated with the operation of industrial processes.
It is intended for honours graduates with an engineering or chemical science based degree who wish to learn how to apply their knowledge to sustainable chemical and process engineering design.
You will gain specialist knowledge and understanding via lecture classes, seminars and personal supervision. The course uses taught modules in a variety of topics, including:
