The MSc Process and Environmental Systems Engineering programme will train you in general and specialist process systems engineering subjects. Such areas are not generally covered in engineering and science curricula and graduates tend to be ill prepared for the systems challenges they will face in industry or academia upon graduation.
The programme disseminates technology with a wide scope among engineering disciplines. Process and information systems topics are popular and represent major trends, not only in engineering but also in the more distant fields of finance, industrial management and computer-integrated manufacturing.
There is a wide selection of modules on offer within the programme. All taught modules are delivered by qualified experts in the topics and academic members of the University staff, assisted by specialist external lecturers.
The programme provides high-quality education with substantial intellectual challenges, commensurate with the financial rewards and job satisfaction when venturing into the real world. It will also make you aware of current technologies and trends, whilst providing a rigorous training in the fundamentals of the subject.

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
