The Advanced Process Engineering programme from Cranfield University equips graduates and practicing engineers with the technical knowledge and skills to solve major engineering challenges at process design, operation, and control stages.
It also focuses on the development of concepts, methodologies and models both performance prediction of the engineered system to support investment decision-making process. As a result, Cranfield graduates are some of the most desirable in the world for recruitment.
Why this course?
Advanced Process Engineering MSc constitutes an interdisciplinary research area within the chemical engineering discipline. It focuses on the use of experimental techniques and systematic computer-aided methodologies for the design, operation, optimisation and control of chemical, physical, and biological processes, from chemical and petrochemical processes to pharmaceutical and food processes.
A distinguished feature of this course is that it is not directed exclusively at chemical engineering graduates. Throughout the years, the course has evolved from discussions with industrial advisory panels, employers, sponsors and previous students. The content of the study programme is updated regularly to reflect changes arising from technical advances, economic factors and changes in legislation, regulations and standards.
Successful graduates have been able to pursue or enhance careers in a variety of key areas such as:
Engineering consultants, Postdoctoral Research Associate, Teaching Associate, PhD Researcher, Subsea Engineer, Senior Engineer, Telecommunications Engineer, Process Engineer, Layout and Material Flow Engineer, Process Project Engineer, Project & Continuous Improvement Engineer, Senior System Engineer, Lead Storage Engineer.
