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.

Surrey’s £1.7 million chemical engineering facility also makes us one of the few universities in the world where you can experience operating a complete chemical engineering process.
