Our M.Phil. Programme in Advanced Chemical Engineering (ACE) is a one-year full-time Master's that starts in the Autumn of each year.
It is partly a taught course where candidates receive an education both in advanced aspects of Chemical Engineering and in essential areas of engineering administration, such as technology policy, finance and management, and sustainable development.
It also includes a research project and on 31 August 2016, this year's class gave presentations at the conclusion of those projects.The subjects were very diverse. For example, Tariq Allie-Ebrahim presented his work on "Multicomponent diffusion in highly non-ideal ternary liquid systems", Anouk L'Hermitte spoke on "Improved chemistries for tooth whitening", Yiming Zhu's project was "High temperature molecular sieve adsorption", and Dongmo Bian talked about "A silk camouflage protein".
Anouk L'Hermitte said, "The MPhil ACE has been a challenging and valuable experience. Not only did this tailored programme allow us to expand our knowledge and our skills, but it also gave us the opportunity to work with great people in the course and during the research project."
Applications for the 2017-18 course will be considered starting from September 2016.
