Develop a broad understanding of chemical engineering. Gain the professional, technical and managerial skills to pursue a wide range of careers as an engineer.

Our course gives you a thorough grounding in the principles and practices of chemical engineering. You’ll develop professional skills in engineering, mathematics, material science, information technology, research and design, communication and management.

Integrating lecture material and practical lab sessions, you’ll learn how to gather and analyse data to develop industrial strategies. You’ll explore modern practical technologies and develop your understanding of process design. You’ll combine planning, problem solving, teamwork and resource management skills to solve complex engineering problems.

The research project and group design projects are a chance for you to apply these core engineering principles on the bench or process scale. You can complete your research project at Bath, a university abroad or in industry. You could study topics like chemical process modelling and simulation, advanced separations, nanotechnology, catalysis, water engineering or sustainable engineering practices.
