MSc/PGDip Advanced Chemical Engineering with Formulation
This Advanced Chemical Engineering with Formulation programme from University of Birmingham focuses on advanced chemical engineering topics that inform the modern process engineering industry.
|Duration:||1 year (Full-Time)
2-3 years (Part-Time)
|Tuition Fee:||£26,640 per year|
|Location:||Birmingham, United Kingdom|
Our three major research areas – formulation engineering, energy, and healthcare technology – guide the programme. We explore concepts and processes that are applicable to multiple sectors, such as food, fuel, energy, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, and chemical industries. Our graduates are well prepared for a career in a variety of industries and have an opportunity to capitalise on the growing global demand for chemical engineers.
- Applied Synthetic Biology
- Measurement, Sensors and Design of Experiments
- Non-ideal materials
- Research Project (MSc only)
- Food Structure for Performance
- Future Engineering of Foods
- Industry 4.0 and Big Data
“The transition from undergrad to postgrad can be a big step up in terms of workload and what is expected of you, but there is so much support available to you as a postgrad student, from academic writing support (if you’ve been out of education for a few years or just want a bit of extra help) to mental health and wellbeing services. The careers support is fantastic – the uni puts on employer fairs throughout the year and you have access to one on one support from the Careers Network team, who can help you develop your skills ready for your next step!”

Why study this course?
In this course we consider the important aspects of chemical engineering in the 21st century that address the issues of the design and development of key formulated products that will increase process efficiency, enable healthy lifestyles and allow clean use of energy. Such products include formulated foods, fuel cells, medical devices and pharmaceuticals.
Our themed optional modules enable you to specialise in areas of chemical and process engineering that interest you; from the production and formulation of pharmaceuticals, formulation of structured food products, generation of bioproducts, clean energy including hydrogen fuel cells and thermal energy storage, and the business surrounding chemical and process engineering.
Teaching is led by our world-leading research in chemical engineering, and during the research project students work within research groups on an original research project.
Birmingham has been challenging and developing great minds for more than a century. With over 35,000 students and 7,000 staff, today we are one of the world’s leading universities. Characterised by a tradition of innovation, research at the University has broken new ground, pushed forward the boundaries of knowledge and made an impact on people’s lives – a tradition that this programme proudly continues.
Benefit from our collaborations with world-class industry partners, and international, leading-edge engineering and science departments.
- You should have, or expect to obtain, a 2:1 Honours degree in a relevant subject (eg, Chemical Engineering or Chemistry with sufficient Mathematics).
- International students applying for this programme will need an Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS) certificate from the Foreign & Commonwealth Office before the University can issue you with a Certificate of Acceptance of Studies (CAS). We recommend that you apply for your ATAS certificate as soon as you receive an offer from us.
