I am a third year Biochemistry student at a Russell group university and I am thinking of applying for an MSc in Chemical Engineering at Imperial college. According to the entry requirements, they accept graduates from life/biomedical sciences subjects (which means they should accept Biochemistry degrees right?). However, when I checked the module outline, I became somehow hesitant. Seems like they require so much pre-requisite knowledge on topics such as fluid mechanics and power transfer and these topics are not usually covered in courses like biochemistry. Do you think that I will be at a disadvantage doing this course considering my biochemistry background?
I am hoping to find a job in pharmaceutical/oil industries after the completion of this masters degree.
Would it be possible to secure similar jobs doing a masters in Biochemical Engineering instead of Chemical engineering?
Your responses are very much appreciated!

Are you sure what you;re reading is about pre-requisite knowledge or what will be taught? Your best bet is to contact admissions and see what they have to say about your profile and if the course will suit you. Also ask if they have support available for people who may need to get up to speed. You should be able to get a job in pharma with either degree but do one that you're interested in.
