Course Summary

Specialise in environmental and sustainable processes while developing the technical, professional and digital skills needed in industry. Our course is for engineers and scientists who want to make a positive impact on the environment, society and the future of our planet. Climate change, GHG emissions and loss of biodiversity are important global issues and the world needs leaders and innovators to design and manage sustainable processes and systems to address these. If you have that desire to learn how to solve the important environmental challenges we face, then our course can help you towards that goal. We’ll develop your skills, knowledge and understanding to take on these issues against a backdrop of economic factors, environmental compliance and national and international legislation. Your studies will cover areas such as improving resource efficiency, and how to monitor, manage and mitigate negative environmental consequences. You’ll learn how to apply whole-systems and life-cycle approaches to evaluate the impact of industrial activities while considering current and possible future legislation. This ‘big-picture thinking’ will allow you to move beyond traditional approaches to process engineering.


Working on multi-disciplinary problems, develop knowledge of process design, economic analysis as well as modelling software and simulation tools, which assist process design practices. Working in small groups and using critical thinking and interpersonal skills, such as, leadership and time management you will holistically design different unit operations for a sustainable chemical engineering process, mapping the outcomes to the UN sustainable development goals.
