Department of Chemical Engineering
The Department offers a range of first degree and
post-graduate programmes in chemical engineering. These include
four-year MEng degrees, some giving the opportunity for one-year's
study abroad in Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, or the USA, a
three-year BEng, and a one-year MSc in Chemical Process Engineering as
well as a full PhD programme.
All our taught-course programmes are
accredited by the Institution of Chemical Engineers.
The department offers four different undergraduate degree programmes:
- BEng in Chemical Engineering (UCAS: H800)
- MEng in Chemical Engineering (UCAS: H801)
- MEng in Chemical Engineering with Study Abroad (UCAS: H802)
- MEng in Chemical with Biochemical Engineering (UCAS: H816)
Students do not
need to commit to one of these programmes from the beginning of their studies,
but are given the possibility to change after the first or second year to
an option that will best suit their career aspirations.
All of our programmes are accredited by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE).
department offers an MSc programme in Chemical Process Engineering.
Process Engineering often involves close collaboration between engineers
and scientists from a variety of disciplines and the programme is
to facilitate this and at the same time provide graduates in such
disciplines as chemical engineering, chemistry, physics, applied
or mechanical engineering with advanced training for entering the
or biochemical process industries.
The MSc programme is accredited by the Institution of Chemical Engineers
MPhil / PhD Programmes
The department offers programmes of research and teaching
spanning the breadth of chemical engineering. Research is a major departmental activity with 75% of staff rated as
world leading or of internationally excellent quality in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) carried out by HEFCE. Core research activities focus
on Energy and CO2, Sustainable Manufacturing, Health and
Environment.The research is divided into three main groups: Chemical and
Catalytic Reaction Engineering, Product and Process Systems Engineering,
The Department hosts the Electrochemical Innovation Laboratory and Centre for CO2 Technology.
