The Master of Science in Chemical Engineering is a 60-ECTS-credit postgraduate programme to equip graduates and professionals with strong fundamentals and robust training in modern chemical engineering technologies.

It is suitable for mid-career professionals who wish to take advantage of current economic restructuring and industrial transformation to switch to chemical engineering careers. The ECTS, known as the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System, is a credit system designed to make it easier for students to move between different countries

This programme is under provisional accreditation by the Engineering Accreditation Board. 

Programme Highlights

  • Modern controller design methods for the chemical and process industries;
  • Modelling and simulation strategies for process analysis and design;
  • Characteristics of various WTE technologies, design of WTE facilities with consideration of the regulatory and socio-economic aspects;
  • Exposure to computational tools in process simulation and Life Cycle Analysis (LCA);
  • Reaction mechanisms and kinetics; interpretation of the kinetics simulation and proposal of reactor design;
  • Multi-disciplinary design and operation of advanced separation processes for the oil & gas and chemical industries through the analysis of fundamental theories of phase diffusion and flow dynamics;
  • Technical competency in applying the principles of classical and applied statistical thermodynamics to solve complex engineering and practical thermodynamic problems;
  • The ability to optimise and re-engineer the production systems at the workplace to enhance business profitability through the applications of fundamental and advanced chemical engineering principles;
  • Membrane applications in chemical, environmental and pharmaceutical industries;
  • A unified and comprehensive approach to the formulation, interpretation and solution of problems in fluids, mass transfer and heat transfer.
