Programme objectives

This programme is designed to assist international postgraduate students to become high-level experts in chemical engineering and related fields, fully familiar with the fundamentals of chemical engineering and technology, and having the abilities essential for research and development in areas such as chemical engineering, biochemical engineering, industrial catalysis, and environmental engineering.

To qualify for the degree, candidates should demonstrate integrity and originality in their scientific research, and their suitability for future careers in design, teaching, scientific research and management in chemical engineering and related fields.

It is expected that graduates of the programme will become highly qualified international managers with an excellent knowledge of chemical engineering, and with a good background and understanding of Chinese society and culture.

Core course descriptions

* Applied Mathematics

This module is intended to give students a firm grounding in mathematical modeling and simulation for various chemical and biochemical engineering processes. The course covers both analytical and numerical techniques used in solving the associated algebraic as well as differential equations. All fundamental concepts are introduced as applicable to chemical and biochemical engineering using modern software tools. Some background knowledge in analytical methods and numerical analysis from undergraduate programmes will be beneficial.

* Transport Phenomena

Pre-requisites: A knowledge of fluid mechanics and/or mass, momentum and heat transfer at undergraduate level.

The objective of this course is to introduce students to the concepts and theory of fluid mechanics, and mass, momentum and heat mass transfer at an advanced level. This module starts with the derivation of three conservation equations for momentum, energy and mass, and introduces the constitutive equations that relate fluxes to material properties and driving forces. This is followed by the application and simplification of these basic equations in the context of various specific cases. A number of classical methods for solving different problems are explored.

* Separation Science and Technology

The course has the objective of introducing the concept and theory of diffusion, and their application in the design and analysis of industrially important, advanced separation processes. The module starts with a review of basic diffusion concepts and calculations followed by an exploration of the impact of flow dynamics on diffusional mass transfer. These concepts are then applied to the understanding and design of absorption with chemical reaction, adsorption, and membrane separation processes. Some background knowledge of equilibrium thermodynamics and the principles of diffusion will be beneficial.

* Applied Molecular Thermodynamics

Pre-requisites: Physical chemistry and/or thermodynamics at undergraduate level

The objective is to give students the fundamentals of thermodynamics at an advanced level, so that they can apply them to the analysis of complex processes and equipment design in chemical engineering. The module will begin by reviewing the basic laws of thermodynamics, the basic thermodynamic variables and other concepts. This is to be followed by the fundamentals of equilibrium thermodynamics, criteria of equilibrium and stability; molecular thermodynamics; and an introduction to statistical thermodynamics. These concepts are then applied to the analysis of chemical engineering processes.

* Advanced Reaction Engineering

This module will train students in the fundamentals of reaction engineering and their application to the design and analysis of reactors. The concepts and theory in reaction kinetics are applied to the design of single-phase reaction systems. They are then extended to cover multi-phase reaction systems, incorporating the effects of physical rate processes and interfacial equilibrium, leading to the formulation of procedures for the design, and performance and stability analysis of reactors. Background in chemical kinetics and transport phenomena will be beneficial.

* Prospective students should have a non-Chinese passport and be in good health;

* Academic requirements: Prospective students must hold a recognised bachelor's degree or above, or equivalent.

* English proficiency: Minimum requirement is 550 points or above for TOEFL, a grade 6 or above for IELTS, or other certificate of English proficiency from an approved authority. Native English speakers are exempt from this requirement, other candidates whose university courses are taught in English will be considered case by case.

* Professional backgrounds: Prospective students who are able to show relevant professional experience deemed appropriate to the programme applied for will be given prior consideration.
