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.
You have three hours per week of language tuition in French, German or Spanish during your second year. This includes spoken language, grammar and some technical vocabulary. During your year abroad in France, Germany or Spain, you attend lectures and tutorials, participate in group work, write reports and take examinations, all in the local language.
Fees for entry in 2018 have not yet been set. For entry in 2017 the tuition fees were £9,250 per annum for home/EU students, and are expected to increase slightly for 2018 entry.
