Why did you decide to study MSc Chemical Engineering programme at the University of Leeds?

The Chemical Engineering programme at Leeds has a great reputation for its well-designed modules for both graduates with and without chemical engineering background. And the study experience in University of Leeds will enhance my competitiveness in employment market. Fortunately, I was awarded international scholarship by my school which was another reason I decided to study here.

What has been the best aspect of studying on your course and at the University so far and why?

The modules I selected have improved my study strategy. Specially, various assignments and coursework led me digging knowledge and information I needed through libraries and websites such as Search@Library and YouTube.

Tell us about some of the exciting projects you have completed.

A group design project for the module Chemical Process Technology and Design was a very challenging one I have completed. It was a practical chemical plant design for a particular chemical product with a flow process diagram, mass balance and energy balance calculations, SHE principles and well-designed parameters for each process equipment.

What does Leeds as a city have to offer students?

Leeds is an energetic city with at least three universities and is also a beautiful one combined with historic buildings. Restaurants and pubs located in the city centre and near the Parkinson Building provide places to meet with friends.

What would you say to students coming to do the same course?

Choose carefully which modules to study according to your interests and which would benefit you most. Cherish every moment in the lecture theatre as they pass so fast. Besides, the intensive nature of the study will help develop good time management skills which will make your study time wonderful and meaningful.
