Course summary

This four-year programme builds upon the knowledge and experience offered by the Engineering (Chemical) BEng programme with the addition of a final-year research project and advanced modules, and is a direct route to IChemE membership and Chartered (CEng) status.

Degree benefits

  • At UCL's Department of Chemical Engineering, you will be taught by lecturers recognised as international leaders in their field.

  • The department offers an impressive national and international network of industrial contacts and has strong collaborative links with other university departments in the UK and abroad.

  • This programme, incl. the Chemical with Biochemical route and the Study Abroad route, is fully accredited by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) and meets the requirements, in full, for registration as a Chartered Engineer, for a period of five years, from the 2017 student cohort intake.

Your learning

You will be taught through a combination of lectures, interactive tutorials and computer workshops supplemented by coursework and laboratory training, and through our innovative and award-winning scenario-based learning. For problem-solving and design classes you will be using leading-edge industrial-standard computer software. Our programmes offer regular opportunities for students to put their learning into practice.

Assessment

You will be assessed through a combination of coursework during term-time, usually contributing 20-50% of the module mark, and final examinations in the third term, except for a few modules which are assessed on the basis of project or coursework alone.

Careers

Our core programme is designed to develop transferable management, business, professional and personal skills, and the diverse curricula and training will equip you well for employment both in the process industry as well as other economic sectors such as management consulting, banking, finance and accountancy.

You will have employment opportunities in many sectors such as energy, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, oil and gas production, contract engineering and manufacturing. You will also be well prepared to consider further study at postgraduate or doctoral level at UCL or elsewhere.

There are excellent opportunities and careers prospects for graduate chemical engineers, both within the UK and overseas. The rewards open to you are attractive - the average income of a chemical engineer, according to the IChemE, is consistently higher than that of graduates in other engineering disciplines.
