Course summary

NEW FOR 2024: A pioneering course designed and delivered with a passionate commitment to achieving net-zero. Taught within Brunel’s young and vibrant chemical engineering department, this new master’s programme is the first of its kind in the UK. The course’s pioneering approach is rooted in its collaboration with four other departments within the university - mechanical and aerospace engineering, civil engineering, environmental science and social and political sciences - giving you a holistic view of low carbon technology and the issues that surround it. You will be taught by a team of world-leading academics with extensive experience and diverse backgrounds in low carbon technologies, who deliver research-informed teaching across topics such as hydrogen production, carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS), biorefineries and fuel cells. You will benefit from the programme’s blended approach to teaching, which includes interactive modes, traditional lectures and tutorial-style learning, along with an active learning approach through extensive discussion. A clear benefit of the programme’s interdisciplinary approach is that while you acquire the ground-breaking science expertise, you’ll also have the opportunity to select employability-boosting modules such as project management, environmental legislation, international business ethics and corporate governance. The compulsory modules will give you industrial-relevant problem solving and transferable skills through holistic assessments, including assignments, written exams, oral presentations, and report writing. Brunel is recognised for its sector-leading chemical engineering facilities on campus, from where you will undertake practical project work comprising both computational modelling and laboratory experiments. This will not only enhance your employability on graduation, but also offer you a unique and exciting perspective on a range of modern technologies, and their potential to achieve sustainable resource management with minimal environmental impact.


Please see the Brunel website for details of compulsory and optional modules.
