Overview

This course is about the design and operation of processes for making products such as food, fuels, medicines, plastics and the basic materials for high technology industries.

We like to get you out of the seminar room as much as possible. You will spend a lot of time learning practical skills and building up experience through lab work, projects and industrial visits.

At some point in the first two years, you’ll take the Global Engineering Challenge, working as part of a team with students from other engineering disciplines, and coming up with creative solutions to problems.

In the third year, you’ll work as part of a team again, on a design project. Some of these projects are developed with industrial partners such as Nestlé, GSK, Proctor and Gamble and BASF.

The course is also available as a four-year MEng. Either qualification is good for your career prospects, but the MEng takes your study to a more advanced level.
