Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Chemical Engineering


Newcastle University

Bachelor of Engineering with Honours
in Chemical Engineering

Chemical Engineering is concerned with developing and implementing methods that convert basic raw materials into useful intermediate or end products such as fuels, plastics, cosmetics, dyes, crop protection agents, and medical preparations by means of physical, chemical and biological processes. In addition to improving existing processes, Chemical Engineers also develop new applications for these processes in response to changes in safety and environmental protection requirements.

This degree programme has a strong environmental and sustainable focus, ensuring that process solutions are economically viable and socially and environmentally acceptable. Students will learn about techniques that will enable them do design, operate and optimise a range of unit operations commonly found in the process engineering industries.

Graduates will have a comprehensive understanding of chemical engineering, combining a sound theoretical grasp of the subject with practical experience and an awareness of their responsibilities to society and the environment. Graduates should be capable of becoming professional chemical and process engineers in the industry or of following a postgraduate route, into a research, industrial or academic career.

Chemical Engineers excel in areas such as research and development, planning, design, operation, purchasing, sales, teaching, patent procedures and business management in the aerospace, automotive, biomedical, electronic and environmental industries.
