The MEng in Chemical Engineering (Distance Learning) at the University of Strathclyde can be completed in one of two ways:
- you attend full-time classes for 12 weeks (semester 1) then return to your workplace to complete the final project (semester 2)
- a part-time distance learning route, spread over two years, with the work project taking place in Year 2
The Department of Chemical & Process Engineering is one of the largest such departments in the UK. We have strong links with employers worldwide and we're particularly pleased with our graduates’ excellent record of achievement.
What you’ll study
You’ll focus on basic principles and fundamentals of chemical engineering as well as core chemical engineering areas such as process analysis and statistics, fluid flow and heat transfer and safety.
You’ll later study a range of advanced options, including, nanotechnology, emerging technologies and safety management.
For BEng students, the final year of study includes particle technology, multiphase systems and process control. The second semester is entirely devoted to the chemical engineering design project.
MEng students who have an interest in management/business may also select a limited number of modules from this area including Finance for Engineers, Strategic Management and HR Management.
Chemical engineers are among the best rewarded engineers globally, and work across all sectors of industry from energy and foods to pharmaceuticals and medicine, as well as branching out into other areas such as finance and management.
The department works closely with the University Careers Service through every year of our course, to support students in building excellent employability skills and portfolios of experience.
