Featured Course


Offered By: The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus

The MSc in Chemical Engineering is a 12-month course consisting of 2 semesters of lectures, project work, continuous assessment and examinations, followed by an individual research project which occupies the final 4 months. The course has been designed to assist holders of relevant degrees in science and engineering to upgrade their academic qualifications and enhance their professional standing. The syllabus covers, among other topics, Process Synthesis and Design, Advanced Transport Processes, Advanced Process Control and Advanced Reaction Engineering.

Programme Structure
The programme is operated on a modular basis and consists of 2 semesters during which students follow a series of taught modules (120 credits), followed by a research project (60 credits):
• 12-month, full-time course
• Two semesters + research project.
• 60 credits in each semester with a further 60 credits earned by the project thesis.
