Course summary

This professionally accredited degree will equip you with knowledge and skills across the full spectrum of chemical engineering topics, allowing you to keep your career options open. Modules build on established chemical engineering areas with application to energy, health, food, water and the environment. As a student on the Chemical Engineering course, you will be prepared to meet the needs of modern process engineering. Chemical engineers design, operate and optimise chemical and physical processes that turn raw materials into valuable products for human use. They also use their skills to dispose of the by-products generated by these processes in a safe and environmentally friendly manner.

The objectives of the Chemical Engineering programme are: to build engineering skills of critical importance when working in industry, including the ability to break a complex engineering problem into its component parts, to sketch/model engineering solutions, to work in a multidisciplinary team, to be able to understand and prepare technical reports and to be able to present your work in a clear and concise manner; and to provide students with a solid background in the design and analysis of chemical and other processes.

Students on a 5-year MEng degree scheme which includes a year abroad will also be able to study at a partner university after their second or third year, and before their final year. As a student on a Year Abroad course, you will select the university where you will spend your year abroad by submitting three choices to the course coordinator at the College of Engineering.
