London South Bank University

Course Introduction

MSc Chemical Engineering and Process Management has been developed to meet employers’ needs in the chemical engineering sector and it reflects our strength in research and teaching in this area.  Not only are modern chemical engineers expected to have solid knowledge in reactor design, process simulation, and the numerous unit operations that take place in a chemical or petrochemical plant, there is an increasing need for chemical engineers to understand process management. This course offers a solution for this need.If you already have a first degree in chemical engineering you can gain more in'depth knowledge in this discipline as well as explore broader issues through the choice of elective subjects. Academic staff in Division of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering have very active research in areas such as greener energy, multiphase flow, materials and catalytic reactions. According to their own needs, students can select to enrol these modules delivered by experts. If you do not have a chemical engineering degree but graduated from a closely related engineering discipline, this course offers you a platform to study chemical engineering and opens a career path for you in chemical industry.
