Course summary

Chemical engineering is dynamic and evolving, and today extends far beyond its roots in oil and gas processing. It provides many solutions to problems facing the pharmaceutical, biotechnological, oil, energy and food and drink sectors. It is also fundamental to many issues affecting our quality of life – such as better processes to reduce the environmental burden, and longer lasting food – all of which depend on the right combination of chemistry, ingredients and processing.

This programme focuses on exploring the aspects of chemical engineering that deal with the design and development of formulated products, such as food and pharmaceuticals. Our graduates are well prepared for a career in a variety of industries and have an opportunity to capitalise on the growing global demand for chemical engineers.
