Prospective Students

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.

Undergraduate Programmes

The department offers the following undergraduate degree programmes:

  • H800 3FT Hon BEng Engineering (Chemical)
  • H801 4FT Hon MEng Engineering (Chemical)
  • H801 4FT Hon MEng Engineering (Chemical with Biochemical)
  • H801 4FT Hon MEng Engineering (Chemical - International Programme)

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).

MSc Programme

The 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 specifically designed to facilitate this and at the same time provide graduates in such diverse disciplines as chemical engineering, chemistry, physics, applied mathematics or mechanical engineering with advanced training for entering the chemical or biochemical process industries.

The MSc programme is accredited by theĀ  Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE).

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, Multiphase Systems.

The Department hosts the Electrochemical Innovation Laboratory and Centre for CO2 Technology.
