Course description

Chemical Engineering concerns the science, technology and management involved in making the materials and products needed by our society.

You study a range of core materials incorporating the fundamentals of chemical engineering as well as supporting mathematics and science.

The technical aspects revolve around managing the behaviour of materials and chemical reactions - this means predicting and manipulating compositions, flows, temperatures and pressures of solids, liquids and gases.

You learn about chemical, physical and biological processes using mathematical equations as well as learning about the equipment and techniques used by industry for large-scale manufacturing and the safety issues surrounding the industry.


Tuition fees for home/EU students commencing their studies in September 2018 will be £9,250. Future inflationary increases may also be applied to each subsequent year of your course, subject to government regulations on fee increases.
