Our programme provides an insight into basic chemistry, process engineering and computational engineering. You’ll understand how to alter the chemical, biochemical or physical state of a substance, processes used to create everything from personal care products to medicines to advanced functional materials, such as smart coatings.

You’ll also learn about the engineering principles used to design large-scale processing plants for everything from food to oil, with an emphasis on safety, sustainability and cost-effectiveness.

The programme is both practical and theoretical: you’ll be in the lab from the first term, working on projects relevant to the chemical engineering industry.

In the third year you’ll carry out a lab-based research project, based on your individual interests and integrated into the School’s world-leading research activities.
