Course summary

OVERVIEW

Why choose this course

Combining exceptional facilities with research-led teaching, our BEng Chemical and Petroleum Engineering courses will prepare you for a fulfilling career in the oil and gas or petrochemical industries.

Surrey is one of the few universities in the world offering you the chance to experience the complete chemical engineering process.

What you will study

Our BEng Chemical and Petroleum Engineering courses combine core chemical engineering principles with specialist modules, design projects, equipment design and research projects relating to energy and petrochemicals.

Taught by prize-winning academics and experienced former industrialists, you’ll gain practical experience working on a small chemicals plant in our newly-refurbished laboratory facilities. This will help prepare you for a wide range of fulfilling careers in the global energy sector.

You can apply to study for either a BEng (Master of Engineering). The MEng builds on the BEng course with a masters year and is a direct route to a masters qualification.

Careers and graduate prospects

We offer careers information, advice and guidance to all students whilst studying with us, which is extended to our alumni for three years after leaving the University.

Chemical engineers work across a range of sectors in the UK and internationally, and are increasingly sought by speciality chemical industries that manufacture high value-added products.

On average, chemical engineers earn more than any other engineering discipline and graduates are consistently paid more than chemists and other scientists. The high salaries reflect the level of responsibility and importance which chemical engineering graduates quickly attain.

At Surrey, our excellent graduate employment record demonstrates the strength of our courses and Professional Training placements in preparing you for industry.

Assessment

We assess modules individually and award credits for the successful completion of each one. Assessment takes place through a combination of examination and/or coursework, practical examinations and reports.

Placements

You have the option to complete a Professional Training placement as part of this course. This will give you the opportunity to develop your professional, academic and personal potential, helping to prepare you for your future career.
