Course summary

Learn from net-zero chemical engineering experts who are decarbonising industry one reaction at a time Chemical engineers and chemical engineering plays a pivotal role in net-zero energy transition and the future of the planet, alongside mitigating the impact of traditional oil and gas. This is because industrial decarbonisation around the globe will heavily rely on availability of affordable low-carbon sources of energy and the development of hydrogen as a clean fuel for example, advanced energy conversion and storage technologies, as well as carbon capture, storage and utilisation. Chemical engineers possess the unique set of skills to imagine, design, optimise and commercialise such innovative technologies in the drive to achieve net zero. Want to become one of them? Join our MSc in Advanced Chemical Engineering and work alongside world-leading chemical engineering experts actively engaged in researching and developing the innovative materials and processes essential for net-zero energy transition. We promote applied approach to learning. Using our world-class campus pilot plant facilities and benefiting from Cranfield’s strong industry links, you will gain the essential skills and experience to develop a successful career in a thriving discipline with its high demand for postgraduate level engineers. You will also benefit from professional development, career mentoring and teamwork to transform you into the engineering leader who will solve global challenges. Who is it for? A distinguishing feature of this course is that it is not exclusively designed for chemical engineering graduates. Suitable for all engineering and applied science graduates, this MSc will provide you with the skill sets that employers actively seek in highly desirable engineering graduates, enabling you to embark on a successful career as a chemical engineering professional in industry, government or research. You will learn state of the art chemical engineering methods, apply them to real world problems via industrially focused modules and research projects, whilst gaining the essential management skills to bring your ideas to life. Why this course? Chemical engineering is a continuously evolving discipline which is linked to a variety of industries. Chemical engineers lead the design of large-scale facilities in the chemical, petrochemical, and industrial biotechnology sectors. With this in mind, we recognise the importance of an interdisciplinary approach. The modules and their content, have been carefully developed with our industry connections to meet the engineering skill shortage currently faced within the sector. By combining advanced chemical engineering topics, with a thorough underpinning in the management skills required to lead large, complex projects, this course will prepare you for a successful chemical engineering career.

  • Prepare for real-world chemical engineering challenges via our practical focused modules, using on-campus pilot-scale facilities,
  • Participate in individual and group projects to explore areas of particular interest and develop a track record of project management and delivery,
  • Develop your technology leadership capabilities with the world-renowned Cranfield School of Management.
