Program Description

Chemical engineers design, operate and optimise chemical and physical processes that turn raw materials into valuable products for human use. They also use their skills to dispose of the by-products generated by these processes in a safe and environmentally-friendly manner. You will be trained to meet the needs of modern process engineering and gain the ability to use analytical skills and tools to formulate and solve problems relevant to the application of engineering to industry. The course will also provide a foundation for you to aim for the prized Chartered Engineer status.

Fees for full time Undergraduate EU/International students will increase by 3% for each subsequent year of study.
