Chemical engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with manufacture of products through chemical processes and the technologies of chemical production. This study field is based on combination of physical sciences, life sciences, mathematics and economics. Chemical engineering differs from chemistry because of focusing on large scales. This study field has two groups: the first group deals with chemical processes (design, manufacture and operation of plants and machinery), while the second group deals with new substances development. Graduates can work at various industries, especially oil and petrochemical industry, nuclear energy, food production, development of new sources of energy and medicine.
Crude oil is currently our most important global source of energy. This course explores oil’s vital role in the modern world and assesses some of the exciting scientific developments that could lead to sustainable alternatives to oil. Learn about living without oil is one of a series of 100-hour flexible online courses introducing fascinating topics in science.
The aim of this course is to make the student aware of the methods of assessing risk and hazard and how they apply to the safety of weapons and explosives.
This course is designed to introduce the student to the phenomena of pyrotechnics, and to the design of compositions and munitions.
The aim of this course is to provide a basic scientific and technological understanding of the production and behaviour of petroleum based fuels and lubricants. Some non-petroleum products used as alternative fuels and lubricants will also be included.
The aim of this course is to provide an understanding of the science and mechanism of fire initiation and spreading and of the explosion process in condensed and gaseous systems and to give the students an appreciation of techniques used in the forensic investigation of fires and explosions.
During experiments with process equipment in semi technical scale the possibilities and limitations of the theory are compared with the practical experiences. In addition an improved understanding of the processes, equipment design, operational conditions, measuring techniques etc. is achieved. Training in industrial report writing.
To introduce the concepts of surface engineering and how surface engineering may be used to optimise a component’s performance. To introduce suitable analytical techniques used to evaluate and characterise surfaces and thin samples.
The aim of this course is to show the effects of explosions on the structure and properties of materials and to give students the opportunity to examine artefacts, which have been or could have been involved in explosive incidents.
This 6-week intensive program offers a nanotechnology lecture and a lab course in English, with site visits to 10 leading research centres, and an intensive German language course. It is directed to undergraduates of science and engineering who have completed an introduction to quantum mechanics or quantum chemistry.
Proporcionar los conocimientos sobre la tecnología de caracterización de residuos de media y baja actividad de diversa naturaleza, antes y después de su acondicionamiento, por técnicas destructivas y no destructivas, mediante la utilización de métodos radioquímicos, espectrométricos y fisico-químicos.
The course is intended for officers and civilians in the Ministry of Defence, scientists and engineers from Industry and Dstl and Qinetiq.
The course will introduce the participants to state-of-art electrochemical and optical microsensor and imaging techniques and to their application in the environmental sciences.
