Chemical Engineering with Industry

Summary: By joining Teesside's chemical engineering degree you will be on a path to full registration as a chartered engineer with one of the highest earning potentials amongst the engineering professions. Chemical engineers take science out of the laboratory and into the real world. They turn raw materials into useful products through changing their properties or changing how their properties interact with each other. Course details: The North East is a major centre for process industries and this degree programme takes full advantage of the university's location by providing you with significant practical elements and opportunity to engage with industry. You may also benefit from a placement or professional mentorship with one of the companies in the region, or further afield. This is a real bonus, giving you experience of finding practical solutions to real industrial problems, and enhancing your employability prospects. Chemical engineers can be involved in a hugely diverse range of work, from oil and gas extraction to designing and building cleaner nuclear power plants. Graduate chemical engineers can expect starting salaries of around £29,500, increasing to £70,000+ when a senior level is reached (prospects.ac.uk 2016). After the course: Chemical engineers are employed worldwide in activities including research and development, design and plant operation.
