The programme provides high-quality education with rigorous intellectual challenges, commensurate with the financial rewards and job satisfaction available in the real world. It also delivers a thorough grounding in the current technologies and trends, offering comprehensive training in the fundamentals of the subject.

Programme overview
The MSc Information and Process Systems Engineering programme is aimed at graduates of traditional engineering, science and related disciplines. Graduates from non-IT or related disciplines tend to be ill prepared for the information and knowledge-related challenges and demands of today’s business environments.

We offer a wide selection of modules spanning process engineering, information systems, business and management. All taught modules are delivered by qualified experts in the topics and academic staff, assisted by specialist external lecturers.

Compulsory modules

– Optimisation and Decision-Making
– Information Security Management
– Technology, Business and Research Seminars
– Knowledge-based Systems and Artificial Intelligence
– Intelligent Information Systems
– Process Modelling and Simulation

Optional modules

– Process Safety & Operation Integrity
– Process and Energy Integration
– Process Systems Design
– Supply Chain Management
– Biomass Processing Technology
– Advanced Process Control
– Transitions to a Low Carbon Economy
– Sustainable Development Applications

Teaching and assessment
Our programmes utilise our research-active staff in conjunction with state-of-the-art facilities to provide a range of learning experiences – lectures, seminars, directed study, practical laboratories and project work.

Lectures are delivered by specialised, expert academic staff. Further in-depth knowledge and skills are gained through seminars delivered and guided by experienced professionals from industry, business and research organisations, with the focus on the latest trends and problem-solving methods. You will also work on a number of projects, individually and in groups, supervised by academic staff and focusing on real-life problems.

Modules are generally assessed by a combination of examinations and continuous assessment. The latter will be based on solutions to tutorial questions, reports covering practical sessions and fieldwork, and essays on a number of suitable topics. Each module is examined separately. There is a written final examination for most modules at the end of each semester, although some modules are examined by continuous assessment only. The modules and the dissertation project have a minimum pass mark of 50 per cent.

Entry requirements
Candidates should be graduates with a minimum 2.2 honours degree (or equivalent) in an engineering, science or related subject. Practitioners with suitable qualifications and relevant experience in engineering, science or technology are also welcome to apply.
