MEngSc Chemical Engineering
Graduate Taught (level 9 nfq, credits 90)
The MEngSc in Chemical Engineering offers advanced level education for students with primary degrees in chemical engineering/technology programmes. On this programme you will improve your conceptual and practical skills in both the fundamental and applied principles of chemical engineering practice. The programme covers advanced topics in chemical engineering and includes extensive project work in both design (a team effort) and in an individualised research project.
This programme is delivered by a highly research intensive School holding 101-150 in the QS World Subject Rankings and Top 6 in Ireland/UK Employer's and Research rankings and awarded €6.12M research funding in 2013.
The programme covers advanced topics in Chemical Engineering and includes extensive project work in both Design (a team effort) and in an individualised Research Project.
Opportunity to take modules in a number of topical areas including Renewable Energy, Carbon Capture, Climate Change, Nanotechnology etc.

The MEngSc in Chemical Engineering offers advanced level education for students with primary degrees in chemical engineering or chemical technology programmes.
Chemical Engineering spans many fields of industrial development from speciality fine chemicals to pharmaceuticals to oil and gas engineering. The Programme's teaching methods are highly interactive and varied with contributions from a combination of industrial practitioners and leading researchers in their fields. Our graduates will play an important role in the development, design and operation of chemical processes in industry at international level in the coming years.
Vision and Values Statement
Graduates from this programme will advance their careers through a thorough understanding of advanced topics in Chemical Engineering and related topics in other major fields of engineering. In this way, they will prepare themselves for undertaking positions of responsibility within chemical-engineering practice, as well as learning a whole suite of advanced technical material and undertaking cutting-edge design and research projects. In particular, the latest state of the art in disparate areas of research-led process engineering, ranging in scope from materials to experimental design, alongside advanced transport phenomena, will afford the development of a very thorough fundamental understanding of advanced chemical-engineering practice. The learning environment is a supportive and research-led one, featuring open-ended projects as a cornerstone of the research-embedded educational ethos. Assessment will be via challenging projects and written and oral examination. In this way, key professional values of preparing graduate for leading roles in industry, building on fundamental advanced understanding, will be imbued.
-Enhancement of technical skills in advanced aspects of chemical engineering. In particular, the leading research activities of the School of Chemical & Bioprocess Engineering lend themselves to substantial embedding of leading research practice in the programme's modules.
-Sense of independence and self-starting skills fostered by carrying out a semester-long advanced research project, to a demanding and open-ended level.
-The ability to carry out an open-ended Design-of-Experiments analysis, in order to set up and analyses suites of experiments and for process and product optimisation.
-Time-and effort-management skills, in terms of multi-tasking and prioritising workflows, on an individual and group basis.
-The ability to think critically and solve industrially-relevant problems.
-The ability to carry out a comprehensive group-based and open-ended design project, to the rigorous standard set by the IChemE.
- Graduates will play an important role in the development, design and operation of chemical processes in industry at international level in the coming years.
