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.
You spend Year 3 in industry and your placement will vary depending on the company you are with. We have excellent contacts with industry and we will give you a lot of help to find a placement. Students have had placements with companies such as:
- British Sugar
- British Petroleum
- ICI Paint
- Chevron Texaco
- Kraft Foods
- Exxon Mobil
You will work on a project and learn about safety; health and environmental issues in industry; achieving targets and objectives. You will enhance and extend your knowledge of chemical engineering and your skills relating to project work, design and industrial applications.
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.
