Chemical Engineering is dynamic and evolving. It provides many solutions to problems facing industries in the pharmaceutical, biotechnological, oil, energy and food and drink sectors. It is vital to many issues affecting our quality of life; such as better and more economical processes to reduce the environmental burden, and more delicious and longer lasting food due to the right combination of chemistry, ingredients and processing.
The course is industry focused and looks to cover both theory and application of project management principles, practices and tools. Leadership, team building and influencing skills, integral to successful complex project delivery, are also explored.
The key objectives of the course are:
A systematic understanding of Project Management knowledge, and critical awareness of current challenges in an industrial context
<divcontenteditable=true>A comprehensive understanding of techniques applicable to advanced study of Project Management
<divcontenteditable=true>Innovation in the application of Project Management knowledge, but with a practical understanding of how established techniques of research and enquiry are used to create and interpret information
Conceptual understanding of Project Management that enables them to critically evaluate current research and advanced scholarship and evaluate methodologies and develop critiques of them
The course is modular in structure with nine intensive compulsory taught modules spread over two years (120 credits taught material) and a major project in the third year (60 credits). Students may choose to complete one year (for a Certificate in Project Management), two years (for a Diploma in Project Management) or a full three-year MSc course. The first two years are made up of four to five taught modules per year.
Each module is a mix of theory, practical example and coursework, and requires around three days of classroom tuition. The third year is a major project on an in-depth industrial project, managed using the principles and tools taught in the earlier two years.
