Chemical Engineering

This course provides advanced studies in chemical engineering that reflect the broad areas of research expertise and scholarship in the School of Chemical, Environmental and Mining Engineering; in particular, applications in the areas of advanced chemical engineering, computer-aided process engineering and environmental engineering are offered. Students gain skills in advanced engineering practice, which includes design, operations, problem-solving and practical elements. The advanced practice is centred on themes in energy and environmental applications, so students can also gain significant experience in the areas such as petroleum processing, energy efficiency, carbon capture and water treatment. This course is accredited by the Institution of Chemical engineers (IchemE) and is designed to meet the UK-SPEC requirements of the IchemE for those students who already hold a BEng, BSc or non-accredited chemical engineering degree and wish to proceed to chartered status.
