Course description

The objectives of the Chemical Engineering programme are:

  • To build engineering skills of critical importance when working in industry, including the ability to break a complex engineering problem into its component parts, to sketch/model engineering solutions, to work in a multidisciplinary team, to be able to understand and prepare technical reports and to be able to present your work in a clear and concise manner.
  • To provide students with a solid background in the design and analysis of chemical and other processes.
  • To build awareness of current design practices through the use of the latest engineering standards
  • To build critical awareness of the advantages and disadvantages of different design approaches when facing an engineering problem, including aspects such as environmental constraints, economy, ethics and health and safety.

Variable offers made dependent on subjects studied and all applications are considered on an individual basis, with GCSE grades, AS Level subjects and grades, work experience, references and personal statement taken into account.

Or 34 at IB to include 5 at HL or 6 at SL Mathematics, 5 at HL or 6 at SL Chemistry and 4 at HL or 5 at SL English Language.

Students studying for BTEC in relevant subjects with significant Chemical/Chemistry content require D*D*D* to include B at A Level Mathematics. If they not taking A Level Mathematics, they must achieve a minimum D in 'Mathematics for Technicians' and D in 'Further Mathematics for Technicians' modules of the BTEC. Students are also required to have minimum two A grades at GCSE, to include a minimum grade B in Mathematics and two other Science subjects.
