**Summary**: This degree includes an integrated foundation year if you do not have the appropriate subjects and/or grades for entry to year one of the degree. The foundation year helps you develop your knowledge in mathematics and other important subjects to enable you to proceed confidently through the remainder of the programme. **Course details**: Chemical engineers are involved in a diverse range of work from extracting oil and gas, to designing and building cleaner nuclear power plants. Skilled engineers are highly sought and can achieve high earnings. In the foundation year you study a range of mathematics and fundamental science and engineering subjects, and you develop important practical laboratory skills to prepare you for the remainder of your programme. The content of the remaining years of this programme is identical to the content of our BEng (Hons) Chemical Engineering degree. **After the course**: Chemical engineers are employed worldwide in activities including research and development, design and plant operation. They are involved in a wide range of sectors, from the utilities, construction and defence, chemicals to oil and pharmaceuticals.
