This course aims to produce graduates trained in the core discipline of chemical engineering including energy, materials and reaction engineering, and project management.
It will give you the relevant understanding, skills and knowledge required to operate effectively in the chemical engineering sector, making you capable in the context of modern industrial practice and sustainable development.
You'll develop your knowledge of mathematics, applied sciences, engineering methods and safety, in support of the central themes of the course. You'll also expand on your intellectual and reasoning powers, your ability to perceive the broader perspective and your problem-solving skills.
The course has been developed in response to relevant industry needs and it reflects our strength in research and teaching within this area. The MSc programme benefits from the MEng material for the Chemical Engineering programme to enhance the student experience through greater class sizes and shared learning experiences.
September to August
Core modules develop key chemical engineering skills for those who are new to the subject and further enhance the understanding of chemical engineering graduates. You are offered options in Process Management, Emerging Energy and Sustainability, Advanced Materials Engineering, Process Control and Instrumentation and Process Safety and Hazards. Dissertation stretches from S1, S2 and over the summer.
Part time (PT) students, will follow a similar programme over 2 years.
The principles and skills conveyed by the course will help students develop critical thinking and independent inquiry aptitudes which will enable them to be independent and competent practitioners in their professional life.
The contents of the module will help graduates find employment in the chemical engineering industry, oil and gas industry, energy sector, engineering design, renewable energy and pharmaceuticals industry.
At LSBU, we want to set you up for a successful career. During your studies – and for two years after you graduate – you’ll have access to our Employability Service, which includes:
Our Student Enterprise team can also help you start your own business and develop valuable entrepreneurial skills.
The division has a wide range of links through the A2i projects where SME work in consultation with the division, large multi-nationals such as Bosch, local companies that include site visits to Thames Water and working with Sellafield.
The teaching team in the Division of Chemical and Energy Engineering are experienced and enthusiastic about their teaching and research. We are a multidisciplinary team with expertise in chemical engineering, energy engineering, and materials engineering, some with industrial experience.
All modules are taught through a combination of three or more of lectures, tutorials, computer workshop, laboratory practical, seminars and group work which deliver the intended knowledge and understanding, and intellectual/practical/transferrable skills.
You will be encouraged to attend the seminars/events such as those organised externally by IChemE and research seminars at LSBU. Invited guest lectures from industry will deliver presentations at LSBU on relevant and current topics.
All modules apart from Dissertation are assessed through both examination and individual/group coursework, most with the weightings of 60% examination and 40% coursework.
The dissertation is based on 100% coursework where a series of report submission, presentations and viva are parts of the assessment.
Your personal tutor is assigned during the first few weeks of starting the course when the details of all students on the course are clear. Your personal tutor will be your first point of contact should you have any question about the course, academic regulations and the university facilities to support your studies.
The MSc Advanced Chemical Engineering offers a specialisation route for chemical engineering graduates, or a conversion route for non-chemical engineering graduates.
The standard requirement for admission will be a 2.2 or higher first degree in engineering or a physical science from a UK university, or equivalent degree from overseas. Entrants from a science route must, by their degree or otherwise, be sufficiently prepared for the mathematical content of the course. Applicants must also meet the University's standard requirement for English, i.e. IELTS 6.5, TOEFL 580 or equivalent.
If you are a non-EU/EEA national, you may need to apply to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) for clearance from the Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS) in order to study this course. ATAS certificate is a requirement for enrolment at the University, you will need one if you are an international student applying to study for a postgraduate qualification in the UK and it is now a requirement for every Visa application. Please note, an ATAS certificate is not needed for you to submit an application for a course at LSBU and to receive an offer.
The process for obtaining an ATAS certificate can take some time so it is important that you check whether you need one as early as possible so that you can make your application for the certificate to obtain it in good time. Failure to produce a valid ATAS certificate could result in delays to receiving your CAS or we may be unable to enrol you at the University.
The CAH code for this course is CAH10-01-09.
The course is not currently open to international students.
International (non Home) applicants should follow our international how to apply guide.

Postgraduate students and research students should apply through our dedicated application system. Full details of how to do this are supplied on our How to apply section for postgraduate students and our How to apply section for research students.
Students should apply for accommodation at London South Bank University (LSBU) as soon as possible, once we have made an offer of a place on one of our academic courses. Read more about applying for accommodation at LSBU.
It's a good idea to think about how you'll pay university tuition and maintenance costs while you're still applying for a place to study. Remember – you don't need to wait for a confirmed place on a course to start applying for student finance. Read how to pay your fees as a postgraduate student.
Book a session with one of our specialist Postgraduate Advisors. Over a one on one Advice Session they'll advise you on postgraduate degrees at LSBU that match your interests and experience.
We help our students prepare for university even before the semester starts. To find out when you should apply for your LSBU accommodation or student finance read the How to apply tab for this course.
Before you start your course we’ll send you information on what you’ll need to do before you arrive and during your first few days on campus. You can read about the process on our Enrolment pages.
