Course summary

On this two-year course, you’ll gain a strong understanding of the core disciplines of chemical engineering, with a strong emphasis on design. Practical work forms an important part of the course, and you’ll have the advantage of working in our modern, well-equipped laboratories.

You get the chance to study the fundamentals of chemical engineering through a combination of theoretical, practical and project work. We take an applied approach, so you can expect a strong emphasis on design. This course covers: laboratory skills, engineering mathematics, design and practice, chemical thermodynamics and separation / reaction. In short, everything you need to know to take up a position in the chemical and process industry.

Professional links

The course is accredited by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IEng level) offering you the opportunity to become an incorporated engineer. Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.


The chemical industry is firmly focused on meeting the challenges of tomorrow; using the earth's resources as efficiently as possible to provide for the needs of future generations. It’s an important and varied area for employment.

Possible roles include becoming a power plant or gas plant engineer. Or, like many graduates, you could top up your HND to degree level – complete the course and you’ll be eligible to join either the BEng (Hons) Chemical and Process Engineering or BEng (Hons) Petroleum Engineering in the second year.
