Providing a sustainable, affordable and secure energy future through the discovery and implementation of new technology is a key challenge for the 21st Century. With more people requiring energy, effective solutions need to come from a wide range of sources. For the near term, various fuels will be the key to energy globally; presently oil and gas with an increasing reliance on hydrogen and biofuels. This course has a wide range of subject choices including: Catalyst design; process characterisation; refining; process optimisation; pilot scale studies.
Applicants should hold a 1st or upper 2nd Class Honours degree in chemical or biochemical engineering, or a related discipline, such as chemistry, biochemistry, physics, or other engineering discipline.
A thesis of no more than 30,000 words is submitted, which demonstrates original research that contributes significantly to the subject area. This is then assessed by viva voce examination by both an internal and external examiner.
