Chemical Engineering concerns the science, technology and management involved in making the materials and products needed by our society.
You study a range of core materials incorporating the fundamentals of chemical engineering as well as supporting mathematics and science.
The technical aspects revolve around managing the behaviour of materials and chemical reactions - this means predicting and manipulating compositions, flows, temperatures and pressures of solids, liquids and gases.
You learn about chemical, physical and biological processes using mathematical equations as well as learning about the equipment and techniques used by industry for large-scale manufacturing and the safety issues surrounding the industry.
As well as core chemical engineering, you choose a specialist subject in Advanced Chemical Engineering. This enables you to gain a deeper understanding of fundamental chemical engineering subjects. The programmes are very flexible so you can find out what interests you and what you are best at before you choose your specialist subject.
Fees for entry in 2017 have not yet been set. For entry in 2016 the tuition fees were £9,000 per annum for home/EU students, and are expected to increase slightly for 2017 entry.
