Course Summary

Why this course?

The course is accredited by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) – the global professional membership organisation for chemical engineering professionals.

It's designed specifically for graduates of related science and engineering disciplines who are working in chemical and process industries, with all of the taught content delivered online via our virtual learning environment. The first semester focusses on Chemical Engineering fundamentals, as a refresher for those who have a Chemical Engineering background, and conversion for students of other science and engineering disciplines. Your work based final project will be supervised by one of our world class academics and will give you the opportunity to apply your learning to a real-world problem that is relevant to your employer.

You may choose to exit the course with a postgraduate diploma after two years, or postgraduate certificate at the end of the first year. You may transfer between MSc Chemical Technology and Management and MSc Advanced Chemical and Process Engineering, provided that you do so before the end of the first semester.

What you'll study

The MSc Process Technology & Management, MSc Chemical Technology & Management and MSc Advanced Chemical and Process Engineering are delivered in parallel. All three courses draw from a pool of Advanced Chemical Engineering and Business/Management, but with a slightly different combination of core and optional classes depending on the programme and the professional requirements of the student. The relationship between these three programmes enables you to transfer between, provided that you do so before the end of the first semester.

The modular approach to this course combines a designed core programme, with an element of choice that allows you to choose subjects relevant to you and your industry.

In your first semester, you'll take the 10-credit Process Design and 20-credit Process Analysis for Chemical Engineering. You’ll subsequently follow a programme of core management/business classes, and core and optional classes related to chemistry, chemical engineering, chemical and process technology.


Whether you're planning to progress your career into engineering management, redevelop yourself as an engineer or move into a new industry – a Masters degree will expand your career opportunities.

This MSc will also let you validate your skills and competency to employers. Through its accreditation by the Institute of Chemical Engineers, it can provide a route to Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.
