Course summary

Chemical engineers design, operate and optimise chemical and physical processes that turn raw materials into valuable products for human use. They also use their skills to dispose of the by-products generated by these processes in a safe and environmentally-friendly manner. Chemical Engineering at Swansea ia ranked 8th in the UK for Graduate Prospects by The Complete University Guide 2022. You will be trained you to meet the needs of modern process engineering and gain the ability to use analytical skills and tools to formulate and solve problems relevant to the application of engineering to industry. The course will also provide a foundation for you to aim for the prized Chartered Engineer status. The course involves industrial visits to various companies such as Valero, Avalon (AstraZeneca), Aberthaw Power Plant, First Milk, Tata Steel and Vale INCO Ltd. Modules build on established Chemical Engineering areas with application to energy, health, food, water and the environment. Chemical Engineering Facilities include: Atomic Force Microscopy, Fermentation Rigs, Particle Characterisation, Surface Plasmon Resonance, Hydrodynamic Shear Adhesion Assays, Membrane Separation Rigs and Rheometers We guarantee that you will be made a conditional offer for 2020 for a course at Swansea University. Subject requirements will apply. Please come along to our next Open Day or get in touch for further information.
