Course summary

Modern society relies on the work of chemical engineers, they help to manage resources, protect the environment and control health and safety procedures, while developing the processes that make the products we desire or depend on. This chemical engineering course provides for a deep understanding of chemical processes and also the products resulting from chemical reactions. On the course, you will learn how raw materials can be transformed into useful products in a safe and cost effective way. For example petrol, plastics and synthetic fibres such as polyester and nylon, all come from oil. Chemical engineers understand how to alter the chemical, biochemical or physical state of a substance, to create a range of products as diverse as cosmetics and fuels. The course covers energy resource exploitation and management, industrial practices and processes, chemical thermodynamics and reaction engineering, process design and control, health and safety and protection of the environment, and petroleum and chemical refining.
