PE3006 Chemical Kinetics and Reactor Design (5 credits)
PE3007 Process Dynamics and Control (5 credits)
PE3008 Safety and Environmental Protection I (5 credits)
PE3011 Sustainability in Process Engineering (5 credits)
Elective Module Streams
Students must opt for an elective stream in Third Year and must continue the same stream in their Fourth Year. Note: While there is no upper limit on the number of students who may take a particular elective stream, modules may be withdrawn if there are insufficient entrants.
A. Energy and Environmental
CE3910 Energy in Buildings (5 credits)
B. Pharmaceutical and Biopharmaceutical
PE3009 Pharmaceutical Engineering (5 credits)
Students will attend PE3010 Work Placement (10 credits) before the commencement of the Fourth Year in Process & Chemical Engineering. A pass in PE3010 is a requirement for the award of the BE (Hons) (Process & Chemical Engineering) Degree.
