Lead the way in the effort to make the world a cleaner, safer and more sustainable place as you explore the engineering challenges behind many of our modern technologies on this accredited course. Chemical engineers develop innovative processes to turn raw materials into useful products such as fuels, plastics, foods and medicines. On this course you will learn the key set of chemical engineering principles and understand how to use them for a huge range of applications, such as eliminating harmful emissions of greenhouse gases. At Chester, all Chemical Engineering students complete work placements as an integral part of their degree. Opportunities to develop professional skills are embedded throughout, and good staff-to-student ratios help students build confidence, for example, in giving presentations and participating in class. Our BEng and MEng degrees are fully accredited by the Institute of Chemical Engineers (IChemE), and have been designed in consultation with major recruiters of chemical engineering graduates. We have a strong, supportive culture underpinned by interactive, problem-based learning and a research active faculty. In addition, every student has a Personal Academic Tutor, who will provide support in both the academic and practical aspects of university life. Foundation Year courses have been designed for students who do not have the necessary academic qualifications needed to enter directly into the first year of a degree but who have the ability and commitment to do so. Once the Foundation Year has been completed successfully, you can then go on to complete your degree.
