Chemical and process engineering

Chemical engineers are transforming industries and the world we live in – from creating new biodegradable plastics and improving recycling methods, to developing more cost-effective drugs.

A degree in chemical engineering will inspire and challenge you to cultivate pioneering solutions to global problems.

Our £1.7m chemical engineering facility makes us one of only a few universities in the world where you can experience operating a complete chemical engineering process.
