Specialisation in Chemical Engineering


Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

The project will typically focus on one of the following subjects

  • Ceramics and photocatalysis
  • Chemicals in oil and gas industry
  • Environmental technology
  • Fossil fuels and enhanced oil recovery,
  • Natural products,
  • Polymer technology
  • Spectroscopy and data analysis

Learning objectives


Students who complete the module must be able to

  • account for the theoretical basics of chemical engineering


  • execute laboratory experiments
  • apply physico-chemical models within chemical engineering
  • utilise processes equipment adn process simulators within chemical engineering
  • analyse experimental data
  • write a project report following the standards of the field of study, include relevant original scientific literature, use the correct terminology, and communicate the research-based foundation, problem and results of the project in writing, graphically and orally in a coherent way
  • assess and select relevant original scientific literature and current scientific methods, models and other tools used in the project and asses the problem of the project and results in relevant scientific contexts and social conditions


  • select, combine and review experimental and theoretical methods, as appropriate, in order to solve complex problems in chemical engineering
  • handle the planning, implementation and management of complex and unpredictable research and/or developmental tasks and take professional responsibility for implementing academic assignments and interdisciplinary collaborations
  • take responsibility for own professional development and specialisation
