Chemical Engineering (3 Years) [BEng]

Gain the fundamentals of chemical engineering as well as the supporting mathematics and science in just three years on this BEng course.  You will develop skills such as problem solving, communication and team working in addition to building up sound scientific knowledge and understanding.

Year 1
Year 2
Year 3
  • During year 1 you will cover the core topics including physical and organic chemistry, engineering maths, thermodynamics, heat transfer, fluid mechanics and information technology. Case studies, project work and laboratories develop additional materials on process design and economics, reaction engineering and environmental issues.

    List of course units

  • Moving into year 2, course units will explore design of separation processes, reaction engineering, materials science, biochemistry, engineering maths, environmental science and technology. Case studies, project work and laboratories develop additional materials on process modelling, multiphase processing, process control and biochemical engineering.

    List of course units

  • Your final year topics in year 3 will include polymers, biotechnology, fine chemicals, risk analysis, advanced reaction engineering, process dynamics and control. Case studies, project work and laboratories develop additional materials, including process synthesis, design and economics, process safety and sustainable development.
