The course duration is two years with one year of lectures and one year of research project work. There are two postgraduate taught programmes currently running.

M.Sc./ PG Dip in Sustainable Process Engineering 

This programme focuses on the development of sustainable processes in terms of new processes and revamping or retrofitting existing sub optimal processes. Simultaneous analysis of energy, environmental aspects and process technology aspects will be considered as key areas. Specialization is given in broad subject areas of computer aided dynamic process modeling, process control, combustion and safety, biological processes, membrane technology, computational fluid dynamics.

Intended graduates will find employments in the chemical and process industry. They are also expected to play a key role in regional industrial development initiatives. The aim of the programme is to enhance knowledge of process development professionals so that they can initiate changes within the industrial development framework. They will also be critical in spear heading the national industrial development policy in Sri Lanka.
