Chemical Engineering with a Foundation Year BEng (Hons)
If you don't have the usual scientific or mathematical background for an engineering degree, a foundation year is for you. After successfully completing the foundation year, which has modules in mathematics, physics and chemistry, you can start the MEng degree.

You'll learn about the design of processes and products that produce, transform or transport materials and energy. We'll develop your technical, research and problem-solving skills to give you the best start for a career in the sector of your choice.

We give significant emphasis to learning through practical experience. You'll develop practical skills and build up experience through lab work, projects and open-ended problem solving. Our pilot plant gives you the chance to apply what you learn in lectures and labs on larger scale process equipment through hands-on experimentation. This unique facility is designed to prepare you for the challenges of industry.

In your third year you'll take part in a process design project, which will give you the design skills you need to succeed as a chemical engineer.

In your fourth year you'll carry out an independent research project under the supervision of one of our academic staff, and specialise in an area that interests you.
