Chemical Engineering with an Integrated Foundation Year is a one-year programme designed to improve your mathematical and scientific understanding and skills to a level where you will be able to start a degree in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science in one of the following subject areas:
- Chemical Engineering, BEng
- Chemical Engineering, MEng
- Chemical Engineering with Energy and Environment, MEng
- Chemical Engineering with Industrial Experience, MEng
- Chemical Engineering with Study in Europe, MEng
In chemical engineering, raw materials are transformed into useful products through a chemical or biological reaction. On this foundation year, you'll study mathematics, chemistry, physics, academic skills and ICT (information and communications technology) to give you the knowledge you need to study chemical engineering confidently at degree level. You'll learn from The University of Manchester's own chemical engineers, who will help equip you with the skills you need to get to grips with the fundamentals of chemical engineering - such as predicting and manipulating the compositions, flows, temperatures and pressures of solids, liquids and gases.
Teaching and learning
The programme embraces a variety of approaches to teaching and learning, including lectures, small group tutorials, seminars and project work. Particular strengths are the high level of staff contact and individual learning support, individual pastoral support, project work in engineering-based Departments and associated disciplines within the Faculty.
Your focus is the Foundation Studies Office, where staff provide day to day support. The dedicated Common Room offers you a place to study, prepare coursework, carry out work using the computers, or simply socialise. There is a strong sense of community within the student body and excellent tutorial support. Chemical Engineering with an Integrated Foundation Year is delivered on the University campus by University staff.
With strong links with the Department of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science, the environment for study is essentially the same as for undergraduate study on degree programmes in engineering and associated disciplines. You will find that this assists greatly in easing your move into first year of your chosen degree programme on successful completion of the foundation year.
Coursework and assessment
Assessment is based primarily on formal examinations at the end of each semester (in January and June). A smalller proportion of the overall assessment is based on coursework carried out throughout the academic year.
