Expression of interest: MSc Advanced Chemical Engineering (Hydrogen and Low Carbon Technology) at Brunel University London, United Kingdom

The Department of Chemical Engineering at Brunel University London is excited to announce the imminent launch of a new multidisciplinary MSc programme in Advanced Chemical Engineering (Hydrogen and Low Carbon Technologies). This initiative aligns with the global agenda to accelerate the energy transition, working towards achieving the net-zero target. Currently in the final review stage, the programme is set to officially launch in September 2024.

We offer compulsory modules covering process engineering principles, process design and safety, advanced process engineering, engineering fundamentals for hydrogen economy, emerging low carbon technologies, research methods and professional development. In addition, there are opportunities for specialising in project management, environmental management and legislation, and sustainable and environmental engineering through elective modules offered by four other departments within Brunel including Civil Engineering, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Environmental Science Division, and Social and Political Sciences. Students can anticipate an exciting learning experience within this one-year, full time MSc programme.

We are thrilled to share that our recent promotion of this programme in Malaysia and Thailand has garnered positive support from various stakeholders, including the Ministry of Higher Education in Malaysia, top-ranked universities, and the British Council.
