You learn core chemical engineering, such as • chemical transfer and transport phenomena • reactor engineering • separation and mixing techniques • batch processing. You add to this knowledge with further experience in chemical process and plant design. You work toward a group design and commissioning project which will develop your ability to work as a team to solve large complex design issues. You are introduced to a variety of modelling and instrumentation techniques throughout the course, so you can simulate, model and control complex systems. Laboratory work in our specialist facilities introduces you to engineering practice and you also benefit from industrial visits and guest lectures to give you insight into the chemical engineering industry. You gain practical experience through reverse engineering projects and cover other important associated subjects, such as the health and safety requirements of the industry.You work on an individual project to develop your skills in applying your knowledge to engineering problems. In addition to the department's existing facilities, you benefit from a dedicated chemical engineering laboratory. On this MEng course you broaden and deepen your knowledge through a number of core modules and electives, which allows you to make use of our research and industrial expertise. **Placements and work experience** You can choose to take a paid work placement in your third year. Our dedicated placement office help you find and secure the right position and you can earn up to £20,000. This is your chance to apply your academic knowledge in the work environment – and, in the process, improve your career prospects. It can even lead to the offer of a permanent job with your placement employer.
