    Course description
    Chemical Engineering concerns the science, technology and management involved in making the materials and products needed by our society.

    You study a range of core materials incorporating the fundamentals of chemical engineering as well as supporting mathematics and science.

    The technical aspects revolve around managing the behaviour of materials and chemical reactions - this means predicting and manipulating compositions, flows, temperatures and pressures of solids, liquids and gases.

    You learn about chemical, physical and biological processes using mathematical equations as well as learning about the equipment and techniques used by industry for large-scale manufacturing and the safety issues surrounding the industry.

    As well as core chemical engineering, you choose a specialist subject in Biotechnology. Here you consider the science of living organisms and systems and how they are translated into economic and safe products and processes.

    Examples include the manufacture of medicines, the use of genetic engineering to treat illnesses, food processing, treating industrial and human waste and finding ways to use renewable resources. The programmes are very flexible so you can find out what interests you and what you are best at before you choose your specialist subjects.

    Special features

    -Flexibility and choice - you study core chemical engineering plus a specialist subject of advanced chemical engineering, business management, environmental technology or biotechnology. You do not need to decide the specialist subject until Year 2.
    -You have the great opportunity to carry out your final year research project in another country if you wish - Singapore, France, Germany or Spain. An exchange programme with Purdue University, USA is also under development.

    Career opportunities
    Many graduates enter roles in industry as design engineers, consultants or undertake research and development of new products. Others use the skills they have gained for a career in non chemical-engineering sectors such as business, finance, marketing, banking, insurance, accountancy and IT.

    Many graduates move into senior management. Fields are as diverse as food and drink, chemicals, oil, gas and petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, toiletries, energy generation and disposal of waste. Specialists in biotechnology are particularly in demand in the fields of healthcare, nutrition and the environment.

    Course fees: Tuition fees for Home/EU students commencing their studies in 2009 will be approximately £3250 per year. These fees will be subject to change in the light of government announcements to all universities.
