Every degree course is different, so it’s important to find one that suits your interests and matches the way you prefer to work – from the modules you’ll be studying to how you’ll be assessed. Top things to look for when comparing courses
Without the contributions of chemical engineers, we would be living in the 1930s, with no planes or cars, just steam trains. There would be no soap powders or shampoo, the NHS could afford fewer drugs, and electronic devices such as mobile phones and computers would be true luxuries. If you want to learn how to make this sort of difference, then our exciting programmes are perfect for you. You will be challenged and encouraged to work with leading scientists to develop ground-breaking solutions to world problems on our degree programmes. Our prize-winning researchers investigate and analyse a range of subjects, including pharmaceutical manufacture, water purification and fluid mechanics. Chemical engineers make a real difference to society by applying science and technology to everyday problems.
Level 1: Provides students with a strong base of experience in the scientific fundamentals of chemical engineering. Level 2: The modules continue the development of learning together with new chemical engineering topics alongside activities aimed at developing transferable skills; the environmental management approaches modules cover key environmental aspects of chemical engineering, including environmental management approaches and tools as well as environmental legislation. Level P: Professional training year. Level 3: A major part of all programmes is a design project where students, working in groups, produce a detailed design of a specified chemical manufacturing plant; this is followed by an individual equipment design project in which 1 piece of equipment is designed in full detail; there are also a number of other core modules plus a selection of optional modules.
Giving students a competitive edge for their future. That's what we do, and it's what we have been doing since our first students passed through our doors in 1894. The beautiful, landscaped grounds of the University campus are an ideal place to study, relax and socialise in. Safe and secure, the campus has a friendly, close-knit and cosmopolitan community.
