Course summary

Our MEng Chemical Engineering course is offered as either a four or five year course with integrated placement year. It is designed to develop your engineering skills, in the context of a firm grounding in chemistry. To ensure this you share a common first year with chemists and in later years go on to specialise at a more advanced level in the core engineering topics. The MEng builds on the BEng course, but is an extended, broader-based qualification, it is enhanced by additional subjects including process synthesis, advanced management, bioenergy, and a major research project. Chemical engineers are very much at the forefront of working to improve the quality of our lives. Chemical engineering is a challenging and fascinating profession with extensive career opportunities. As a chemical engineer you will combine a detailed knowledge of chemistry with an understanding of engineering principles in order to design, construct and operate chemical process plants. In addition to the traditional oil and chemical-based industries you will be well equipped to go into a wide range of careers including food production, pollution control, environmental protection, energy conservation, waste recovery and recycling, medical science, health and safety, alternative energy sources, resource conservation, research, management and consultancy.Key course benefits:- Accredited by the Institution of Chemical Engineers for the purposes of meeting the educational requirements for Chartered Chemical Engineer- 100% of Chemistry students were satisfied with the Teaching on their course in the 2017 National Student Survey- 100% overall satisfaction in the 2017 National Student Survey- Ranked 4th in the UK for being Intellectually Stimulating in the 2017 National Student Survey- Ranked Top 20 for Chemical Engineering (Guardian League Table 2017)- Our optional placement year offers you the opportunity to gain valuable experience and set your studies in the context of a working environment, designed to boost your future employment prospects.
