About this program

MSc Chemical Engineering with Sustainability

Informed by the needs of a decarbonised industry, this course provides the opportunity to develop the strong communication and leadership skills in sustainability and net-zero that employers are looking for today. It aims to provide an extension beyond undergraduate study for those embarking on, changing, or advancing their chosen career in the chemical industry.

The programe has been developed around the key strands of advanced process simulation, renewable and green energy, biofuels, heat integration, and carbon capture. You will have the chance to develop the necessary knowledge and skills required to work on the engineering challenges of the 21st century through project-based learning.

You can become part of a thriving hub of research and development close to the Humber Industrial Cluster, the nation's largest of its type, which includes CATCH's National Centre for Process Manufacturing (NCPM). You can learn from our experienced and talented academic team, have the chance to work on industrially relevant projects, and gain exposure to real-world training facilities that aim to develop technical skills in the control room, process maintenance, and field operations in a fully emulated process operations environment.

Admission requirements

Entry Requirements

A 2:1 or above, or international equivalent in chemical engineering, mechanical, environmental, or biochemical engineering, or another closely related engineering subject.

All applications will be considered on an individual basis. Applicants with a 2.2 or lower, a non-engineering degree (e.g. chemistry, industrial chemistry, biochemistry, or other pure or applied science subjects), or a non-standard qualification but with relevant professional experience will be considered.

If you have studied outside of the UK, and are unsure whether your qualification meets the above requirements

If you are an overseas student, you may require an ATAS (Academic Technology Approval Scheme) certificate in order to enrol on this course.

Overseas students will be required to demonstrate English language proficiency equivalent to IELTS 6.0 overall, with a minimum of 5.5 in each element. For information regarding other English language qualifications we accept

If you do not meet the above IELTS requirements, you may be able to take part in one of our Pre-session English and Academic Study Skills courses. These specialist courses are designed to help students meet the English language requirements for their intended programe of study.

How You Study

On this course you are able to study a range of topics to develop a critical understanding of engineering and management theory. The course incorporates chemical and green technology-based modules as core modules. You can also choose from optional modules, enabling you to tailor your learning to your individual background and career ambitions. Teaching is informed by real-world examples and you will be expected to participate in lectures, seminars, and workshops to examine, research, discuss, and debate topics.

The Engineering Research Project provides the chance to complete an in-depth investigation of a specific topic within industry or academia, enabling you to apply new knowledge in a real-life setting.

Weekly contact hours on this Program may vary depending on the individual module options chosen and the stage of study. Postgraduate level study involves a significant proportion of independent study, exploring the material covered in lectures and seminars. For every hour spent in class, students are expected to spend at least two to three hours in independent study.

Career paths

Highly skilled chemical engineers are in demand in the UK and overseas especially in this era of heightened awareness about climate change and sustainability. Through teaching methods and high levels of employer collaboration, this programe aims to prepare graduates for careers in the power, energy, and chemical process industries.
