Chemical Engineering

Chemical Engineering uses chemistry, mathematics, biology and physics to provide an integrated approach to understanding the changes which take place in processes, from molecular to global scale, and to create methods which can change chemical or physical composition, energy content, structure, or physical state, ie mathematics and science in action. The subject also involves the application of knowledge to the design, development and operation of plants that process chemical and related products. It borders and overlaps on areas such as mechanical, electrical and civil engineering, chemistry, materials science and biology. Sandwich degrees with a year in industry are four- or five-year programmes with a one-year industrial placement (which may be international) in the penultimate year.
