Content

Students on this partnership route enter at Year 3 having first completed their HND Chemical Process Technology programmes at Forth Valley College.

Year 3
Provides opportunities to analyse key operations in the industry, particularly the processing and separation of gases and liquids. In parallel, there are courses looking at chemical reactor theory, how processes are controlled and the prediction of physical behaviour. Material on Safety, Sustainability and Economics is consolidated in a group-based project.

Year 4
A central theme is the advanced analysis of key processing operations and their control. Specialist topics include Energy Efficiency, Safety and Sustainability. A group-based design project is also undertaken.

Year 5
MEng only
Specialist and core chemical engineering subjects are studied in this year, along with the extensive research project. A central theme is the enhanced design project, where students have the opportunity to demonstrate their skills in process design and commercial awareness.
