Chemical Process Research and Development

The industrial focus of the course and the shortage of suitably qualified postgraduate students, with experience at the chemical engineering interface, ensures excellent career prospects for successful graduates and also provides a good route for progression onto further postgraduate study at PhD level. Core material covers key techniques and methodologies used in process technology, and is reinforced through deductive problem solving, and student led activities, including group work and individual research projects.

Entry requirements

Students should hold or expect to obtain at least an upper 2nd Class degree in chemistry, chemical engineering, or suitable alternative science or engineering degree. International students whose 1st language is not English are required to meet the University's English language entry requirement (e.g. IELTS 6.5).

Course modules

Modules studied may include: Physical organic process chemistry; case studies in fine chemical and pharmaceutical synthesis; process chemistry and chemical technology; chemical biology tools and concepts; chemical reaction processes; pharmaceutical product formulation; pharmaceutical analytical techniques

Assessment methods

Assessment is based on course work, research project performance and written exams which take place at the end of the semester in which the module is taught.

Sponsorship information

This course is sponsored by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
