University of Hull

Chemical Engineering

The Humber is the largest trading estuary in the UK and the fourth largest in Europe, with a chemical and process sector worth £6bn a year. The region is one of the fastest-growing chemical bases in the UK, with investment in new build, expansion and maintenance exceeding £1 billion. This makes Hull the ideal location to study Chemical Engineering, you benefit from studying near over 350 engineering and process giants - including Phillips66, Total, Novartis, BP Chemicals, Croda, Cristal, Smith & Nephew and Reckitt Benckiser. A strong emphasis is placed on the practical application of knowledge. The University has strong, direct links with industry, providing you with opportunities to work on real-world engineering projects. Our MSc Chemical Engineering programme is designed for applicants who wish to enter, or enhance, a technical career in the chemical and process industry. The programme is interdisciplinary by nature making it suitable for applicants from a wide variety of engineering and scientific backgrounds. It takes both a theoretical and practical approach to ensure graduates gain the knowledge, understanding and skills required by providing a range of modules to suit the individual background of students.

Entry requirements

Normally an Honours degree (typically 2.1 or above) in an engineering or related discipline, but less well-qualified applicants with relevant industrial experience may be considered;
International applicants - competence in English is required for international students. For example: IELTS with 6.0 overall with 5.5 in each skill; previous study in English is accepted; candidates that do not meet the language requirements may take an English course at the University of Hull prior to entering the programme.
