Chemical engineering is about transforming raw materials into valuable and desirable products, creating durable products and services, and producing the enabling technology and know-how for a sustainable future. Chemical and biochemical engineers often have the satisfaction of being able to provide valuable input at every stage of a project – from the initial idea through to the product emerging at the end of the line and even going to market. The products of the chemical and process industries ensure that these are among the most successful and thriving types of business in the world. Chemical engineers play a vital role in achieving that success.
Our Chemical Engineering programme aims to provide students with a sound understanding of chemical engineering fundamentals to enable them to progress to professional Chartered Engineer status. In addition to a grounding in science, mathematics and engineering, our students acquire practical skills that are highly sought after by industry.
