Chemical and process engineers help to manage natural resources, protect the environment, control health and safety procedures, and recycle materials, while developing and managing the processes which make the spectrum of products we use.
Chemical Engineering is all about changing raw materials by altering the chemical, biochemical or physical state of a substance to create everything from face creams to fuels, metals to paper, and plastics to synthetic fibres. These products are in every shop, office and home, and many of the companies which manufacture them are household names. The wide range of products and companies means a whole host of employment options and locations, so if you want an interesting, satisfying and highly rewarding career in Chemical Engineering, then these courses are for you!
Recently published results from IChemE’s Salary Survey 2012 revealed good news for graduate chemical engineers. The survey found that chemical engineering is the best paid of the engineering disciplines with 2011 graduates earning a median starting salary of £28,000 per year, making it the third highest paying degree course after medicine and dentistry.
We offer a choice of courses which highlights our wide spread research activities in the areas of chemical engineering, energy engineering, materials processing, pharmaceuticals, personal products and nuclear engineering.
