We all care about what the world will be like for future generations and the effect of our use of energy on the environment. It's an international issue and climate change, greenhouse gas, our carbon footprint and acid rain are all hot topics for debate - they appear in the media on a regular basis. The issue is taken seriously by many major multi-national companies - energy efficiency makes them more competitive and helps them fulfil their duty to society.

* You examine a series of processing steps and how they interconnect to form a complete system which transforms raw materials into desired products with minimal cost and environmental harm.
* Decisions made during the conceptual stage of design are critical to the final environmental impact, safety, quality and economic viability of the process - therefore a lot of emphasis is placed on conceptual design.
* You learn how to build, solve and validate mathematical models for the simulation, optimisation and control of chemical processes and use design and modelling software such as Hysys, ProII, Matlab and Aspenplus.

Who will benefit?

The course is for recently graduated scientists and engineers who are interested in developing their understanding of chemical process design and finding out how good design can have a favourable effect on energy use and the environment.

How will you benefit?

* Advanced training in the most recent principles and concepts of process design ensure you are up to date with the most progressive ideas in the field
* Regular feedback from senior businessmen and women from prestigious international companies mean that the course is considered to be of high quality and extremely relevant to industry
* The qualification you gain will be recognised all around the world and the excellent reputation of the course amongst employers mean that you will immediately enhance your career prospects
* Training in the use of process simulation software and other software tools means that you graduate with skills which are highly useful to employers
* The availability of e-learning material enables you to plan your time to study at your own pace - and you can choose between studying full-time at the University or part-time through distance learning
* You will gain many other skills to make you more employable such as report writing, time management and the ability to make presentations
* There is the flexibility to choose whether you study for an MSc, Postgraduate Diploma, Postgraduate Certificate or even a single Unit as a stand alone short course

Module details

The course can be studied full-time in attendance at the University or part-time by distance learning.

* The amount of effort required by a student is measured in credits. An MSc requires the completion of 180 credits, a Diploma 120 credits and a Certificate 60 credits.
* The MSc has two major segments, the taught part and a research project. You study six 15 credit Units and the 30 credit Unit on Research Training Techniques and Methodology. Following the successful completion of these you go on to complete your 60 credit Dissertation Project (total 180 credits).
* The Postgraduate Diploma requires successful completion of six 15 credit Units and the 30 credit Unit on Research Training Techniques and Methodology (total 120 credits).
* The Postgraduate Certificate requires successful completion of four 15 credit Units (total 60 credits).
* Each of the individual Units is available to study as a shorter training course - a great way to learn new skills and enhance your professional development.

The Units studied are:

* Computer Aided Process Design (15 credits)
* Energy Systems (15 credits)
* Utility Systems (15 credits)
* Distributed and Renewable Energy Systems (15 credits)
* Sustainable Development and Industry (15 credits)
* Greenhouse Gas and Combustion Emissions (15 credits)
* Research Training Techniques and Methodology - including Design Project (30 credits)
* Dissertation Project (60 credits)

Academic entry qualification: To study MSc, Postgraduate Diploma or Postgraduate Certificate you will need a 2(i) (upper second class honours) first degree in a relevant discipline, or equivalent qualifications/experience. Applicants with a 2(ii) will be considered and are welcome to apply.Examples of relevant disciplines for your first degree are: chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, industrial chemistry, environmental engineering, food engineering, manufacturing engineering, offshore engineering, process engineering, petroleum engineering and chemistry. Please enquire if you are not sure whether your first degree is suitable.English language requirements: Applicants who do not have English as their first language will need to demonstrate competency. We generally require applicants to hold one of the following qualifications (although other formal qualifications may be considered): * IELTS: 7.0 (with no sub score less below 6) * TOEFL Paper Based: 600 (with a minimum TWE of 5.0) * TOEFL Computer Based: 250 (with a minimum TWE of 5.0) English Language Requirements CAE score: (read more) Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) is part of the Cambridge English suite and is targeted at a high level (IETLS 6.5-8.0). It is an international English language exam set at the right level for academic and professional success. Developed by Cambridge English Language Assessment - part of the University of Cambridge - it helps you stand out from the crowd as a high achiever. 60 (Grade C)
