Department of Chemical Engineering
The department offers four different undergraduate degree programmes in Chemical Engineering:
- BEng in Chemical Engineering (UCAS code: H800)
- MEng in Chemical Engineering (UCAS code: H801)
- MEng in Chemical Engineering with Study Abroad (UCAS code: H802)
- MEng in Chemical with Biochemical Engineering (UCAS code: H816)
Chemical engineers turn chemical discoveries
into safe, affordable and
sustainable processes for the manufacture of products essential in a modern
society. As a chemical engineer, you could be in demand all over the world
working to meet global challenges in matters of health, environment and
The four-year MEng courses are the preferred option for those wishing to take a direct route to IChemE membership and Chartered Status. The department also offers a three-year BEng course. The first two years are common to all four programmes, thus allowing students time to decide on their final programme.
A levels: A*AA-AAB.
Mathematics required, Physics/Chemistry preferred. If neither Physics nor Chemistry offered then one from Physical or Life Sciences, Further Mathematics or Economics.
A pass in a further subject at AS level or equivalent is required. If Physics or Chemistry is not offered at A level then it must be offered at AS level.
IB Diploma: 36-39 points. A total of 17-19 points in three higher level subjects to include Mathematics, plus Physics/Chemistry preferred, with no score lower than 5.
If Physics or Chemistry is not offered at Higher Level then it must be offered at Standard Level.
A number of prizes
is available to students throughout the course. In recent years, these
prizes have been sponsored by IChemE and companies such as Procter
& Gamble, Courtaulds and Process Systems Enterprise.
The Department has a careers adviser who arranges company visits/presentations and maintains links with the
main employers of graduates. The Adviser also works closely with the
staff of the College Careers Office who are invited to give a series of
presentations on career topics.
The department participates in the Year in Industry
scheme which places students in industrial jobs relevant to
chemical engineering before they enter UCL.
As with other universities in the UK, you need to make
your application to UCL through UCAS (the Universities and Colleges
UCL's UCAS code is UCL U80. There is no campus code.
