They ensure this is done safely with minimum impact on the environment, adheres to all legal and ethical standards, whilst maximising profits and benefits to society.Chemical engineers play a key role in many different industries, including food, water, energy, pharmaceuticals, consumer products, oil and gas and even finance.Our BEng Chemical Engineering degree covers the principles of designing and operating an industrial process, including mass and energy balances, thermodynamics, fluid flow, heat transfer, chemical reactor theory, mixing and separation processes, process control, plant safety and process economics.Our Chemical Engineering degree is predominantly based on mathematics and physical sciences, together with computing, chemistry and some biology.As well as teaching the theoretical principles and theories required to understand real processes, our BEng (Hons) Chemical Engineering degree places great focus on developing the professional competence and employability of our students. From the outset, our students will carry out a wide range of supported learning activities, including experimental work, group projects and computer simulations, developing their independent learning, communication skills and confidence. We draw on our strong industrial network to invite engineers to support our teaching and provide real-world examples. Oral and written presentations given by students help develop their confidence in communicating ideas.
