What will I learn?

Research overview

While covering the scientific principles of brewing, the course allows you to focus on a novel research-based project. Projects are targeted towards subject areas of industrial significance, potentially leading to process improvements and optimisation, as well as helping you develop a detailed knowledge of particular areas of the brewing process.

For the research component of this degree, you will be allocated a supervisor with the relevant expertise to support the project. Full provision will be made for laboratory training and acquisition of relevant techniques.

Key facts

  • Research projects are typically hosted within the purpose-built Brewing and Bioenergy Building which is equipped with a state of the art pilot scale brewery.
  • The course is taught and supervised by staff from the School of Biosciences with expertise in brewing and related sciences, together with contributions from specialist brewing practitioners.
  • The UK Midlands region has strong historic links to brewing and our campus is situated just a short drive away from the famous brewing centre of Burton-upon-Trent.

For the MRes, in addition to course fees, both full-time and part-time options typically require additional funding from industry or a similar source to allow for completion of the practical component of your research.
