Our IChemE accredited course is distinguished by developing whole system professional standard design from year one with the level of design increasing in complexity throughout the course. This approach aims to make our graduates industry-ready and equip them with a competitive edge when it comes to securing jobs and placements. Our MEng programme also enables students to study specialist topics and undertake industrially relevant research alongside leading academic researchers. Throughout the programme, emphasis is placed on the value of group project work as a means of preparing you to work as an engineer. The course offers the opportunity to undertake a one year industrial placement and/or study abroad. This degree has been accredited by the Institute of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) and IOM3 (Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining) under licence from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council. Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC).
In year one and two, students develop knowledge of the engineering fundamentals, science and design. In year three, in addition to advanced modules, you will undertake an industry-focused group design project, which simulates a commercial environment and will allow you to develop and demonstrate valuable skills for your future career as a professional chemical engineer. In year four, you will be able to specialise by choosing modules that suit your own interests and career path. You will also undertake a research and development project, giving you first-hand experience in cutting-edge research and advanced design practices.
