The programme aims to provide students with the skills required for a successful career in the process industries and is aimed at graduates of engineering, science or related disciplines. The programme will train students in general and specialist process systems engineering subjects. Such areas are not generally covered in engineering and science curricula and graduates tend to be ill prepared for the systems challenges they will face in industry or academia on graduation.
