The 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.

You will 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 you can also gain significant experience in areas such as petroleum processing, energy efficiency, carbon capture and water treatment.

Key facts

  • Relevance to industry is a strong feature of this course, with a high proportion of the teaching staff being chartered engineers and/or having relevant industrial experience, as well as ongoing research links to industry.
  • Many of the projects carried out are sponsored by industry, and industrial sponsorship has been obtained over the years to help improve facilities.
  • The department boasts extensive laboratory facilities and significant pilot plant and industrial scale chemical processing equipment.
  • Offering a unique combination of engineering and science skills, the department provides a strong and dynamic environment with close links between research and teaching.

Programme Structure

The course follows a modular structure, with students completing 180 credits over a 12-month period. Students take 50 credits of core modules, 40 credits of optional modules, a 30-credit development project providing skills in advanced design practice and a 60-credit summer project which develops skills in research.

The course utilises an integrated educational approach in which lectures, example classes, laboratories and information technology from key elements.
