Course Summary

This Engineering MSc by Research course design and production of novel green catalysis to produce biofuel from eco-friendly materials, e.g. agricultural waste. The challenges facing the world today are complex and require a multidisciplinary approach. As a general engineering department, we are able to bring together a wide range of expertise, experience and facilities to solving such problems - encompassing mechanical engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, chemical engineering, biomedical engineering, and energy engineering. We have a long history of excellence in research and in the application of research to address real-world problems. In the latest Research Excellence Framework exercise (REF 2014), 99% of our research submissions were judged to be 'internationally recognised', with 75% of our outputs classed as 'world-leading' or ''internationally excellent'. Our research interests are broadly themed around three key areas: Energy and Environment; Medical Engineering; Sustainable Engineering. We welcome applications from potential graduate students who are interested in working with us for MSc by Research.
