Course summary

Hull’s facilities, IChemE accreditation and proximity to more than 350 industry giants. That's a great springboard for a high-level job in chemical engineering. Record numbers of students now study chemical engineering in the UK. And intake at Hull has increased significantly year on year. That's testament to both industry growth and our investment in the subject. But the good news doesn't end there ...

  • Our degrees are accredited by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) and meet the academic criteria for registration as a Chartered Engineer
  • You'll study near more than 350 engineering and process companies in the Humber region – including Phillips66, Total, Novartis, BP Chemicals, Croda, Cristal, Smith & Nephew and RB (formerly Reckitt Benckiser)
  • We're joint second in the UK for graduate prospects in this subject area, with 90% of graduates in professional jobs or graduate-level positions within six months (The Times and the Sunday Times University Guide 2018)
Chemical engineering's the second highest-paid profession for new graduates (after dentistry), according to the Complete University Guide (2017). Our programmes have strong industrial links – with chemical engineers contributing to our teaching, and industry sponsoring our flagship final-year design project. The foundation year boosts your skills and knowledge if you don't quite meet our academic entry requirements. Official Team GB partners Did you know that the University of Hull is the official University Partner of Team GB?
