Are you looking for a fascinating career that uses creative processes to make the world around us a better, safer place? This is the course for you. Chemical Engineering focuses on developing ways to take raw materials and turn them into everyday products. Food and drink, medicines and energy are all made safe and improved by the ingenuity of chemical engineers, making it a role that is extremely satisfactory and highly sought after. You will gain an enviable skillset that includes theoretical and practical, both lab-based and in real-life environments. With this skillset, you can start an exciting career in changing the world: previous LSBU Chemical Engineering graduates have helped develop processes to produce COVID-19 vaccines, invented new ways to produce essential materials to improve battery performance and sought creative ways to reduce global CO2 emissions in the past couple of years alone. You’ll also have the opportunity to choose the specific Chemistry and Energy Engineering pathway.
