What will I learn?

About the course

Chemical engineering can be viewed as the most applied of the applied sciences, and with opportunities to make a difference in the world. Chemical engineers transform the visions of chemists and biochemists into industrial-scale reality, to make the benefits of new products and processes available to the world.

  • Our Chemical Engineering with Chemistry MEng course is accredited by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE)

  • Like the Chemical Engineering with Chemistry BEng(Hons) course, it provides extra depth in organic chemistry on top of physical and inorganic chemistry, allowing you to distinguish yourself in the employment market with a MEng degree for employers who want strong chemical engineers who also understand the chemistry of the processes they are dealing with.

  • Our Chemical Engineering with Chemistry MEng builds on the BEng(Hons) course that provides in-depth coverage of modern, industry-relevant chemical engineering material from the fundamentals through to process design. There is a strong emphasis on chemistry, in the context of chemical engineering, on systems thinking and on practical skills, as well as on nurturing transferable and employability skills.

  • We offer you the opportunity to gain strong, in-depth and industry-relevant chemical engineering knowledge to help you play a valuable and rewarding role in this industry and beyond.

  • Our teaching staff are educated to doctoral level in their respective subject areas and have expertise in specialist areas of chemistry and chemical engineering, as well as recognised higher education teaching qualifications and awards for excellent teaching.

  • You'll have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience using scientific instrumentation in our modern chemical sciences labs and pilot-scale rigs in our dedicated chemical engineering labs. In the third year of your course, you'll also have the chance to benefit from a work placement to see your subject in action and gain relevant real-world experience to enhance your future employment prospects.

  • The final year of the MEng includes further taught material on advanced aspects of chemical engineering, along with a substantial 40-credit Research Project in which you’ll have the chance to learn research skills, drawing on our wide-ranging research interests including graphene nano-materials, biorefining and bioprocessing, computational chemistry, pharmaceutical chemistry, synthetic organic chemistry, catalysis and chemical reaction engineering.

  • It’s a course designed to help set you up for a career in oil and gas, fine chemicals, materials, food, pharmaceuticals and many other industries, by offering that extra breadth and depth of study and research associated with Master’s level courses.

Your career

The chemical industry is an important industrial sector employing many chemical and process engineers, and chemical engineers are unique in being able to design chemical processes. But chemical engineers can do much more, and chemical engineering graduates find employment in many other sectors that value the numerate and joined-up thinking that characterises the chemical engineer and gives them their power. As a graduate of this course, you may consider a career in a wide range of areas, including chemical manufacturing, environmental consultancy, nuclear engineering, scale-up and plant design, process plant trouble shooting, oil and gas, water, food and energy, research and development, patent law and teaching.
