Chemical engineers have a crucial role in addressing challenges within our world. As the population grows, we need to create processes that convert raw materials into products in an efficient, safe and sustainable way. You will focus on changing the chemical, biochemical and physical state of raw materials. Chemical engineers are vital to key industries such as food and drink and energy. As well as chemical engineering, you will focus on process design. This will include process and plant design, starting from year one of your programme. Throughout the duration of your degree, you will learn the fundamental skills needed to enter the engineering profession. You will also develop transferable skills:
- Project management
- Business management
You will share the same first year across the department - developing knowledge of the engineering fundamentals, science and design. At the end of year one you can elect to transfer to any of the courses offered by the department. In year three, in addition to advanced modules, you will undertake an industry-focused group design project, which simulates a commercial environment and will allow you to develop and demonstrate valuable skills for your future career as a professional chemical engineer. In year four, you will be able to specialise by choosing modules that suit your own interests and career path. You will also undertake a research and development project, giving you first-hand experience in cutting-edge research and advanced design practices. Through lectures, group study and tutorials combined with coursework and self-study, you may spend over 40 hours a week on your studies.
