With innovation and problem solving at the core, our courses aim to produce the next generation of chemical engineering leaders and entrepreneurs
Studying Chemical Engineering BEng/MEng (Hons) at Brunel, you’ll develop chemical engineering skills to appreciate the need for safe design and operation of process plants and the environmental responsibilities in the context of sustainable development.
Teaching is modular and covers a broad core and complementary subjects. With innovation and problem solving at the core, this course aims to produce the next generation of chemical engineering leaders and entrepreneurs. A major part of your third year is devoted to a process design project, with other students working in multidisciplinary teams. Plant safety and economic aspects in the form of capital and operating costs are essential parts of the design project. You’ll take decisions and support your choices based on technical, economic, health, safety, chemical cybersecurity management, and environmental basics.
If you join a BEng programme, you can transfer to the MEng programme at the end of the second year, provided you reach a progression standard. The final year of the MEng will broaden your knowledge to help you meet the leadership needs of industry.
