Overview

Chemical Engineering is concerned with large-scale chemical and biochemical processes in which materials undergo change. The fundamental concepts, principles and theories underpinning Chemical Engineering will be taught, with core knowledge in mathematics, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics; mass and heat transfer, chemical reactions; materials; process control; safety, health and environment.

The distinctive feature of the course is that as well as teaching traditional chemical engineering there is also a focus on advanced materials engineering based on our excellent research. The MEng course comprises an extra fourth academic year of more advanced and in-depth study, and enables the fastest route to Chartered Engineer status.

As a qualified Chemical Engineer you will understand how to alter the chemical, biochemical or physical state of a substance, to create everything from healthcare products to food and water to energy.

Career opportunities

These courses are available with an optional 12 months of integrated industrial training immediately after your second year. This, we strongly believe, enables you to apply what you learn on your course to the needs of an employer.

We help you obtain your industrial placement, and satisfactory completion results in the additional award of a Diploma in Industrial Studies.

The optional placement year is highly recommended and provides you with an increased prospect of sponsorship and enhanced graduate employment opportunities.

Chemical Engineers are equipped with many transferable skills and job prospects are therefore excellent. Most Chemical Engineers get employment in industries where large-scale conversion of raw materials is involved and also in the process industries, for example, gas, nuclear, paper, textiles, food, pharmaceutical, oil, recycling industries. Employers range from large multinational companies to smaller ones. Many of our past graduates have found employment in major companies such as BP, Astra Zeneca, Pfizer, BASF, etc.

Employment six months after the course was 79% in 2011 graduates in the School of Engineering, Design and Technology (most recent data) found employment or went on to further study within six months of graduating.

The average salary six months after the course in 2011 graduates in the School of Engineering, Design and Technology was £25,467.
