University of Bath has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
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 founding practices of chemical engineering. Through problem-based learning, you'll gain the knowledge 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 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. Individual and group projects 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.

Alternative A level offer: AAA in three A-Levels including Mathematics and Chemistry plus one of the following: Grade A in an EPQ Grade B in the Welsh Bacc Skills Challenge Certificate Grade A in AS level Further Mathematics Grade B in a fourth A level, where your four A levels include A level Further Mathematics If you receive an offer for this course and are studying one of these qualifications you will be given both the typical and alternative offer. If you are taking a GCE A level in a science subject, you will need to pass any separate science practical endorsement.|
|Pearson BTEC Level 3 National Extended Diploma (first teaching from September 2016)||D*DD||D*DD in the BTEC Level 3 National Extended Diploma (RQF) plus grade A in A level Mathematics. We are able to consider the above qualifications in Engineering alongside an A level in Mathematics. You must be studying the following units as part of your BTEC qualification: Further Engineering Mathematics, Principles and Application of Fluid Mechanics, and Thermodynamic Principles and Practice. If you are studying a BTEC qualification in Applied Science in combination with A level Mathematics, please contact us to discuss the suitability of your optional units before making an application. In addition to our essential GCSE requirement in English, we also require grade C or 4 in Double Science or Physics and Biology.|
|Access to HE Diploma||D: 39 credits||Pass the Access to HE Diploma in Science or Engineering, with at least 39 credits achieved at Distinction. This must include at least 12 credits from Mathematics units achieved at Distinction and at least 12 credits from Chemistry units achieved at Distinction. Our Chemical Engineering courses are academically challenging and require solid foundations of knowledge in Mathematics and Chemistry. We are able to consider Access to HE Diplomas in Science or Engineering, and we are looking for you to be studying a suitable level of Mathematics and Chemistry to be able to succeed on our course. You will need to have studied Mathematics units worth at least 12 credits and Chemistry units worth at least 12 credits. However, due to the time-limited nature of Access programme delivery, it is expected that you will have also completed a significant level of independent study in order to further develop and refine these skills.|
|Pearson BTEC Extended Diploma (QCF)||D*D*D*||D*D*D* in the BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma (QCF) plus grade A in A level Mathematics. We are able to consider the above qualifications in Engineering alongside an A level in Mathematics. You must be studying the following units as part of your BTEC qualification: Further Mathematics for Technicians, Mechanical Principles and Applications, Principles and Applications of Thermodynamics, and Principles and Applications of Fluid Mechanics. If you are studying a BTEC qualification in Applied Science in combination with A level Mathematics, please contact us to discuss the suitability of your optional units before making an application. In addition to our essential GCSE requirement in English, we also require grade C or 4 in Double Science or Physics and Biology.|
