Process and Environmental Systems Engineering MSc

Programme Overview

Our MSc Process and Environmental Systems Engineering programme will train you in general and specialist process systems engineering subjects. Such areas are not generally covered in engineering and science curricula, and graduates tend to be ill prepared for the systems challenges they will face in industry or academia on graduation.

Our programme disseminates technology with a wide scope among engineering disciplines and will train you in general and specialist process systems engineering – crucial aspects to finance, industrial management and computer-integrated manufacturing.

There is a wide selection of modules on offer within the programme. All taught modules are delivered by qualified experts in the topics and academic members of the university staff, assisted by specialist external lecturers.

Our programme provides high-quality education with substantial intellectual challenges, commensurate with the financial rewards and job satisfaction when venturing into the real world. It will also make you aware of current technologies and trends, whilst providing a rigorous training in the fundamentals of the subject.
