Chemical Engineering

Our MSc Chemical Engineering programme is designed for applicants who wish to enter, or enhance, a technical career in the chemical and process industry. The programme is interdisciplinary by nature making it suitable for applicants from a wide variety of engineering and scientific backgrounds. It takes both a theoretical and practical approach to ensure graduates gain the knowledge, understanding and skills required by providing a range of modules to suit the individual background of students.

Entry requirements

Normally an Honours degree (typically 2.1 or above) in an engineering or related discipline, but less well-qualified applicants with relevant industrial experience may be considered; competence in English is required for international students. For example: IELTS with 6.0 overall with 5.5 in each skill; previous study in English is accepted; candidates that do not meet the language requirements may take an English course at the University of Hull prior to entering the programme.

Course modules

Core modules: fundamentals of chemical engineering; transport processes and engineering thermodynamics; separation processes and particle technology; advanced process safety, industrial process control and instrumentation; chemical engineering research project. Optional modules: advanced process modelling and simulation techniques; chemical product design; advanced thermo-chemical processing technologies; chemical engineering of nano-materials; energy technologies; environmental management and policy; advanced fluid mechanics; computational fluid dynamics and heat transfer; petroleum and petrochemical engineering; electrochemical engineering and product development; energy generation from conventional and renewable fuels; sustainable waste management.

Assessment methods

The programme comprises a combination of lectures, practical/design exercises, tutorials, computer-based process simulation and optimisation, and resource-based, problem-based and enquiry-led learning.
