Course overview

You'll study a broad curriculum covering the theory and practical application of chemical engineering, including how to use industrial apparatus in our very own pilot plant.

In your third year you spend a paid year in industry, gaining invaluable work experience and building industry contacts. You will work in a team of professional engineers and scientists to apply your knowledge to an industrial problem defined by your host company. Your technical skills will be assessed through an industrial design project and you complete selected chemical engineering topics by distance learning.

The School and the University Careers Service will help you find potential employers and guide you through the application process. We have strong links with over 100 companies, including:

  • P&G
  • MSD
  • ExxonMobil

On return to University in your fourth year, you study a selection of topics that are tailored to further develop the technical expertise you gain on your placement.

Professional accreditation

All of our degrees are accredited by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) and the Institute of Measurement and Control.

IChemE accreditation means employers will recognise the quality of your degree because it meets high professional standards.

Teaching methods

Our strong links with industry experts and focus on industry skills ensure you'll graduate fully equipped with the skills you need.

Your studies include:

  • problem-based learning for the first three years based around industrial case studies – excellent preparation for life as a professional engineer
  • lectures delivered by practising industry experts covering issues surrounding safety management and environmental protection
  • industry representation on our Board of Studies with direct input into our degrees
  • industry links with over 100 chemical engineering companies, resulting in sponsorship and placement opportunities and plant visits

We use case study-led teaching, so your learning has real-world relevance. Teaching is through a combination of:

  • lectures
  • tutorials
  • seminars
  • computer practice sessions
  • extensive practical laboratory work
  • group work on case studies and design projects.

Study abroad

Experience life in another country by choosing to study abroad as part of your degree. You’ll be encouraged to embrace fun and challenging experiences, make connections with new communities and graduate as a globally aware professional, ready for your future.
