Course summary

Learn the core knowledge and technical skills of chemical engineering and focus on the environmental challenges of new technologies, processes and products.

The first three years of our course develop your understanding of the core practices of chemical engineering. Through problem-based learning, you'll critically apply mathematical, scientific and engineering knowledge to projects. A mix of practical work in laboratories and theory in lectures and seminars gives you the breadth of learning needed to become adept in the subject.

You’ll also develop transferable skills such as problem solving, teamwork and resource management. Integrating these with your technical knowledge, you’ll learn how to tackle complex, and often open-ended, engineering problems. Individual and group projects are a chance for you to develop scientific ideas from bench scale to process scale.

You can switch between this and our MEng Chemical Engineering course up until the end of your third year. This is so you can use your study experience so far to help you decide on your final degree.

Studying an MEng gives you an in-depth study experience through advanced taught units and project work. You can explore topics in more depth through a semester-long research project that can be completed at Bath, a university abroad or in industry. Our MEng degrees also fulfil the educational requirements you need to become a Chartered Engineer.

Placement

A placement gives you the chance to gain experience and develop skills in a commercial or industrial environment and can count towards becoming chartered. The professional knowledge you gain can benefit the rest of your degree and improve your career prospects. It can also be an opportunity to earn a salary during your degree.

You can decide whether you want to apply for a placement up until the end of your second year. Placement opportunities cannot be guaranteed but you will receive tailored support from our specialist team to help you secure a placement. Recent employers of our Chemical Engineering placements students include Mondelez, Biobean and Exxon Mobil.

Careers

By becoming a chemical engineer, you’ll be able to make a valuable difference to the world around you. You could be part of building a better future through delivering clean water, designing greener products, or researching new ways to generate energy. You’ll also be joining one of the highest-paid professions in the UK.

With a chemical engineering degree from Bath, you can be confident that you’ll graduate with the specific engineering knowledge and transferable skills to help start your career. You could take on technical and managerial roles across industry and commercial sectors. For example, you could follow a career in alternative fuels, healthcare industries, water treatment, production of consumables such as foodstuffs and toiletries in the fast moving consumer goods industries, and oil and gas.
