Programme Details

The MSc in Process Systems Engineering is a contemporary engineering discipline that emerged with the main purpose to provide the methods, tools and human capacity that allow industry to meet its needs by tying science to engineering. The programme provides engineering and applied science graduates with current theory and practice of the technical and managerial aspects of process systems. This degree programme is one of a set of post graduate programmes designed by Cranfield University and offered at Muscat University. This is a dual degree programme, leading to the award of a Cranfield University degree and a Muscat University degree.

Programme Objectives

The MSc in Process Systems Engineering aims to:

  • Provide engineering and applied science graduates with current theory and practice of the technical and managerial aspects of process systems.
  • Equip students with adequate knowledge and experience to deal with the design, operation, optimisation and control of all kinds of chemical, physical, and biological processes through the use of systematic computer-aided approaches.
  • Provide employable graduates in a vast range of industries, such as oil and gas, petrochemical, mineral processing, specialty chemicals, food, pharmaceutical, biotechnological, water and energy industries.

Admission Requirements

We welcome applications from talented candidates of all backgrounds and each application is considered on its individual merit. Usually candidates must hold either a:

• Minimum of a “Good” undergraduate degree from an Oman institution in a relevant discipline, OR
• first or a second class UK honours degree in a relevant discipline, OR
• international degree - equivalent of UK qualifications

Candidates who do not meet these criteria may be considered if they have several years' relevant work experience.

In addition, candidates will be required to show proficiency in English evidenced by:

• a minimum IELTS score of 6.5, including a minimum of 6.5 in the Writing component of the test, OR
• Successful completion of the Muscat University Pre-sessional programme

Students will be required to take eight core modules (80 credits) and a group project
(or dissertation for part-time students) (40 credits) (120 credits in total).
Students will also be required to carry out an individual thesis project (80 credits). (200 credits in total)
