Dissertation project
As part of the MSc course, you have the opportunity
to carry out your own research on your chosen topic.
Most students have the opportunity of working with
large engineering or engineering software
development companies, and The Process Integration
Research Consortium (comprising approximately 20
international companies) provides opportunities for
you to discuss project work in a large number of
engineering-related areas.
The following are examples of some of the topics
previous students have chosen:
• Heat exchanger cleaning schedule
• Oil refinery plant atmospheric emissions –
  case study
• Pinch technology and heat integration of the fluid
  catalytic cracking unit and the un-saturates gas
  plant of a refinery in the UK
• Development of a refinery modelling tool for
  overall petroleum refinery simulation
