Course overview

This course is structured to accommodate the interests of Chemical Engineering and Chemical Technology students from an engineering or scientific background.

Core learning outcomes include an understanding of the principle of advanced chemical processes and chemical technologies, and developing the ability and skills to design the relevant processes and devices to achieve desired commercial reality.

Students have the opportunity to explore these in experiment and modelling oriented projects, and complete the course by analysis and interpretation of the research results and writing up a dissertation for examination according to the established procedure at the University of Nottingham.

By taking a multi-disciplinary approach to teaching and learning the subject, the course aims to support students in understanding the subject and provide them with the ability to apply it in industrial practices or further studies.

The specific objectives are as follows:

  • to encourage integration between the separate disciplinary areas
  • to promote innovation and design creativity within a sound operational context
  • to develop the students' transferable skills in research methods at the postgraduate level
  • to facilitate an in-depth investigation of a relevant topic through independent research

Depending on the availability of teaching resources and demands in future, this MRes programme may introduce optional modules to reflect the progress and state of the art advances in Mechanical/Materials areas. These may include advanced CFD, advanced FE analysis and the updated knowledge of viscous flow and heat transfer, vibration dynamics together with advanced manufacturing technologies, advanced production and assembly system and composite materials.

Course structure

  • Generic Research Training module

Students are required to take a compulsory Generic Research Training module which is run by the Faculty of Science and Engineering. The Generic Research Training module includes three components, including:

Component 1 – Research training

Training sessions are delivered by the Graduate School. Face-to-face and online standalone training options are available.

Component 2 - Scientific research paper writing

This face-to-face training is delivered by the module convenor. The training sessions focus on the development of scientific research paper writing skills, and scientific publication and metrics issues. This component consists of training sessions of total 4-5 hours in 2 mornings/afternoons and a tutorial session of 2 hours in a morning/afternoon (all sessions: to be arranged locally).

Component 3 - Professional Development

Relevant state-of-the-art techniques and up-to-date knowledge are obtained from the public lectures and research seminars organised by relevant professional institutions/organisations and Schools/Research Groups in the Faculty. Supervisor’s approval must be obtained before attending each event. Attendance of each event must be checked and signed by supervisor.

  • Thesis

Students are required to submit their thesis prior to the end of the period of registered study. The thesis is examined by both an External Examiner and an Internal Examiner appointed under the regulations governing the assessment of research degrees, who should provide independent reports on the thesis, indicating whether the thesis module has been passed; and also whether a viva voce examination is necessary.
