BEng Chemical Engineering with Industrial Experience (H811)
This programme enables you to extend your course by one year and spending at least 38 weeks in industry. It complements our existing MEng Chemical Engineering with a Year in Industry. You'll learn about the design and operation of processes for making a wide range of products on which everyone's standard of living depends. These include food, fuels, medicines, plastics and the basic materials for high technology industries. Between years 2 and 3 of your course you'll take a paid placement in industry, which will provide you with wide-ranging experiences that will put your academic studies into context and improve your skills and employability.
The modules listed below are from the current academic year and there may be some changes before you start your course. For the very latest module information, please contact us.
