Course Information

This one-year programme at the University of Edinburgh will immerse you in the most current developments in chemical engineering, through a combination of taught modules, workshops, an MSc research dissertation, and a number of supporting activities delivered by the key experts in the field.

The MSc programme will develop from fundamental topics (including modern approaches to understanding properties of the systems on a molecular scale and advanced numerical methods) to actual industrial processes, with a particular emphasis on energy efficiency, to the MSc research dissertation projects where the acquired skills in various areas are put into practice, to be applied to actual chemical engineering problems.

A unique feature of the programme is a strong and committed involvement of the UK and EU chemical engineering industry. The programme is advised by an Industrial Advisory Board, while MSc research dissertation projects are formulated and coadvised by industrial partners, with topics ranging from computational fluid dynamics for medical applications, to carbon capture and storage, to continuous manufacturing for the pharmaceutical industry.
