Diverse Laboratory Experience: Our courses involve laboratory work in a wide range of chemical, biological and/or Chemical Engineering subject areas. They offer training in specific techniques and illustrate fundamental concepts discussed in lectures. Emphasis on Project Work: During your studies you will be involved in individual and group project work. These are designed to develop individual skills as a researcher as well as communication, negotiation, organisational and leadership skills needed to work effectively in research- or project- groups after graduation. Professional Practice: Our courses emphasise the commercial as well as industrial application of Chemistry. During your course you will take a number of modules designed to link the theory you study in other modules with the 'real world' that will continually influence your future work, whether you do biomedical research, help define public environmental policy or design new chemical process facilities.
Full accreditation is given by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) to the academic content of all our Chemical Engineering degree courses. The appropriate period spent in a responsible position after graduation can therefore count towards corporate membership of the Institution (the placment year counts towards this).
Uniquely our MEng in Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry is accredited by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) and recognised by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). This means that following time spent in post after graduation you will be eligible for Corporate Membership of both Institutions and the status of Chartered Engineer and Chartered Chemist.
Reflecting our established reputation, our courses are recognised by the Royal Society of Chemistry.
