Chemical engineers develop innovative processes to turn raw materials into useful products like fuels, plastics, foods and medicines. They are also leading efforts to make the modern world a cleaner, safer and more sustainable place to live. On this course you will learn the key set of chemical engineering principles and understand how to use them for a huge range of applications, such as eliminating harmful emissions of greenhouse gases or turning living cells into tiny factories for making life-saving drugs.

Why Study Chemical Engineering with us?

    You will be at the heart of a modern industrial research centre, working with state-of-the-art industrial research facilities previously used as Shell’s main Research and Development centre in the UK.

Situated at the attractive Thornton Science Park, adjacent to Britain’s second largest oil refinery, we also enjoy close links with many innovative chemical engineering companies both on-site and nearby.

Our course has been designed in consultation with major recruiters of chemical engineering graduates, and all students complete work placements.

We have a strong, supportive culture underpinned by interactive, problem-based learning delivered by research-active faculty.
