Developing new processes for producing specialist materials, such as plastics, lightweight metal alloys and nanomaterials, is an emerging trend in the chemical industry for a wide variety of industrial and consumer applications. Covering all these areas, the degree is designed to provide you with the knowledge and skills for a career in the chemical, materials and related industries.
On this degree, you’ll gain a grounding in the fundamental science and mathematical concepts that underpin chemical engineering, such as thermodynamics and the principles of process engineering. Specialised modules will also give you a thorough understanding of materials-related topics like structural materials and nano-materials.
Our courses are shaped by our world-leading research in areas such as advanced engineering materials, innovative manufacturing and sustainable systems.
During your project work you will access specialist facilities and laboratories.
Our theoretical modules are supported by extensive practical sessions in the laboratory, allowing you to perform experiments that reinforce the material taught to you in the lectures.
Small tutorial groups are used to support the teaching, so you get regular feedback from the academic staff helping you solve any problems that you might have with a particular topic.
