Career opportunities

Katie Clamp studied Chemical Enginering here and now works as a Global Process Development Engineer at Unilever.

A chemical engineering degree from Manchester can be your ticket into any number of industries. You might, for example, progress to a career in food and drink, chemicals, oil or gas; or you could move into petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, fast-moving consumer goods, energy generation or waste treatment. The possibilities are endless - especially if you choose to specialise in areas of advanced chemical engineering with the four-year MEng degree.

Your future could lie in design, operations, or as a consultant. Or, you might head down the path of research and development. You could even use the skills you gain to pursue a career in a non-chemical engineering sector, such as business, finance, marketing, banking, insurance, accountancy or IT.

Whatever you decide, you'll be among a cohort of chemical engineering graduates who typically go on to earn more than those progressing from other disciplines.

A degree from The University of Manchester can lead to a number of new and exciting opportunities. Find out more about our careers support and read our blog for graduate stories.
