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. The Individual and group projects you carry out through the degree are a chance for you to develop scientific ideas from bench scale to process scale. In your final year, you’ll have the opportunity to build on your chemical engineering knowledge by specialising in environmental engineering. Choosing this route allows you to explore aspects that address social, environmental and health issues, as well as sustainability. Focusing on environmental science and engineering, you'll study the economic, legislative and ethical issues that control environmental protection and sustainability. Areas you'll cover will include clean technologies such as water treatment and waste management. 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. Teaching Our department’s great staff and student community provides a friendly and supportive environment to learn in. We deliver teaching complemented by guest lectures from practitioners to give you a professional and practical perspective on the subject. You’ll learn from expert academic staff whose industrial collaborations, research and entrepreneurial activities feed into our teaching and contribute to your learning experience.
