Course summary

TEF Gold

University of Bath has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.

Find out more about the TEF.

On our course, you’ll gain a comprehensive understanding of the foundation principles and practices of chemical engineering. We’ll help you transition to university life by giving you the digital skills and tools needed throughout your degree and useful for your career. Problem-based learning gives you the confidence to 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 confident 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 ambiguous, engineering problems. In your final year, you’ll have the opportunity to build on your chemical engineering knowledge by specialising in environmental engineering. You’ll focus on aspects that address social, environmental and health issues, as well as sustainability. 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. If you decide on environmental engineering, your final year will focus on advancing your knowledge in environmental science and engineering. You’ll explore the economic, legislative and ethical issues that control environmental protection and sustainability. Areas you cover will include clean technologies such as water treatment and waste management. 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.
