Course summary

Isaac Asimov observed “Science can amuse and fascinate us all, but it is engineering that changes the world!” In the past chemical engineering has quietly (or sometimes noisily!) served the material and energy needs of society. But in the 21st century, in the face of global challenges of climate change and fossil fuel depletion, the need is for chemical engineers to change the world by changing the ways in which we meet our needs for food, water, energy and materials. In particular, we need to do this in more joined up ways that produce the right products more cleverly and effectively, understanding the full environmental implications of processing choices, and exploiting interactions for efficiency to give minimum impact and maximum benefit. * Our Chemical Engineering BEng(Hons) course, accredited by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) (https://www.icheme.org/education/universities-accredit-your-degree/) provides in-depth coverage of modern, industry-relevant chemical engineering material from the fundamentals through to process design. * Chemical engineering can be viewed as the most applied of the applied sciences, and with opportunities to make a difference in the world. * Chemical engineers transform the visions of chemists and biochemists into industrial-scale reality, to make the benefits of new products and processes available to the world. * Our course is strong on chemistry in the context of chemical engineering, on systems thinking and on practical skills, as well as an emphasis on nurturing transferable and employability skills. * We offer you the opportunity to gain strong, in-depth and industry-relevant chemical engineering knowledge to help you play a valuable and rewarding role in this industry and beyond. Our teaching staff are educated to doctoral level in their respective subject areas and have expertise in specialist areas of chemical engineering, as well as recognised higher education teaching qualifications and awards for excellent teaching. You'll have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience using scientific instrumentation in our modern chemical sciences labs and pilot-scale rigs in our dedicated chemical engineering labs. In the third year of your course, you'll also have the chance to benefit from a work placement to see your subject in action and gain relevant real-world experience to enhance your future employment prospects. So if you’re looking for a career in oil, fine chemicals, materials, food, pharmaceutical and many other industries, this could be just the course for you. I chose to study the Chemical Engineering BEng(Hons) at Huddersfield as chemical engineering seemed much more industry-based than the other science and engineering courses I'd seen. I liked that it combined all of my A Level subjects, but also gave me the chance to experience something completely new. Plus the University of Huddersfield has a strong focus on placement and employability. ~ Leah Bentley, Chemical Engineering BEng(Hons) Professional links and accreditation: The course is accredited by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) (https://www.icheme.org/education/universities-accredit-your-degree/). This accreditation is reviewed on a regular basis.
