Course duration and timescales
This course is full time, taken over two years with the first year spent at Manipal University, in India, and the second year at The University of Nottingham.
You will begin your studies in August at Manipal, and transfer to The University of Nottingham for the second year, which runs from September to June, including a period for exams.
At The University of Nottingham you will begin with your 60 credit project (H84MEP) at the beginning of the second year while completing the taught elements of the course. Your year at Nottingham is made up of two terms / semesters.
Each taught semester is about 12 weeks long, with taught modules, a vacation period, and an assessment period. Half of the credits are from taught modules, with the remaining half of the credits from a Research and design project which runs from October to May alongside the taught modules.
Modules and credits
The course is made up of modules worth a total of 120 credits for the year in the UK, with compulsory and optional modules. Each Manipal credit is worth approximately 2.5 University of Nottingham credits, making a total of 240 credits for modules completed in Manipal and Nottingham.
You will develop your knowledge and skills by analysing the types of engineering design challenge found in industry and in academic research, through taught courses with associated project work.
Written and spoken presentations will be undertaken at various stages of the course. A substantial individual project will be undertaken in the final semester. This will develop your ability to engage in independent learning, and prepare you for postgraduate research or a career in industry.
The course has been designed to develop your ability to think critically and logically, to help you acquire problem-solving skills, to become a competent user of relevant equipment and software, and to communicate your results effectively.
By providing you with a broad knowledge and understanding of chemical engineering theory, methods, this course can help you to become a professional chartered engineer, following relevant industrial training and experience.
Academic English preparation and support
If you need additional support to take your language skills to the required level, you may be able to attend a presessional course at the Centre for English Language Education, which is accredited by the British Council for the teaching of English in the UK.
Students who successfully complete the presessional course to the required level can progress to postgraduate study without retaking IELTS or equivalent.
A specialist engineering course is available and you could be eligible for a joint offer, which means you will only need to apply for your visa once.
