Postgraduate (M.Sc. / M.Eng. / PhD.)

To support economic growth demands in South Africa and to satisfy our own requirements for highly skilled postgraduates in the science and engineering disciplines, Sasol awards postgraduate bursaries for M.Sc., M.Eng. and PhD. studies in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. 

These awards will be made for postgraduate research supporting Sasol and South Africa’s energy and circular economy transition, through application in the following core disciplines: 

  1. Chemical Engineering – Fluid Dynamics 
  2. Chemical Engineering – Mathematical and Statistical Modelling 
  3. Chemical Engineering – Process Modelling 
  4. Chemical Engineering – Reactor Technology 
  5. Chemical Engineering – Separation Technology 
  6. Chemical Engineering – Thermodynamics 
  7. Chemistry – Advance analytical Chemistry in the areas of Vibrational Spectroscopy or Gas Chromatography 
  8. Chemistry – Catalysis or Polymer Science 
  9. Chemistry – Environmental Science in the areas of Water, Waste or Air, or in Air with focus on dispersion modelling
  10. Cyber Security 
  11. Data Science – Applied Mathematics 
  12. Data Science – Statistics  

 Applicants are not required to have a formal project proposal ready but should know in which area of chemistry or chemical engineering they would like to study and must be able to discuss possible topics which will support the current sustainability imperatives. 

Successful candidates will engage with Sasol technical experts and academic supervisors to finalise a project proposal.
