Chemical engineering is concerned with designing and managing processes to carry out molecular transformations at large scale, in order to provide the products and materials we all need. Chemical engineers take raw materials and turn them into useful products via chemical or biological reactions. As part of the MEng Chemical Engineering with Study in Europe degree you'll study a range of core material incorporating the fundamentals of chemical engineering alongside a European language. The technical aspects of chemical engineering revolve around managing the behaviour of materials and chemical reactions. This means predicting and manipulating compositions, flows, temperatures and pressures of solids, liquids and gases. You'll discover how to understand and describe chemical, physical and biological processes using mathematical equations, as well as learning about and getting hands-on experience of using the equipment and techniques applied in industry for large-scale manufacturing. In second year you'll takea full foreign language course, which will include spoken language, grammar and some technical vocabulary. During your year studying in either France, Germany, Italy or Spain you'll attend lectures and tutorials, participate in group work, write reports and take examinations, in the local language. You'll also undertake a research or design project during your third year, producing a Research Project Report which is assessed as part of your year studying in Europe. As well as core chemical engineering, in fourth year you'll take specialised courses which include: - Interface and colloid science - Advanced Biotechnology - Sustainable development and industry - Nuclear fuel cycle - Flow and transport in porous media - Distributed and renewable energy systems - Molecular modelling and simulation - Computer aided process design The Design Project is a key component of our course which is taught in the fourth year of our MEng with Study in Europe course. Working in teams students undertake an open ended project to design a complete production process. Sustainability is embedded within the design project, with examples including the sustainable production of chemicals such as propylene oxide and ethylene glycol and succinic acid production from waste. Our student design project groups have won the IChemE's Macnab-Lacey Prize three times since its introduction in 2011. The prize is awarded to the student design project which best demonstrates how engineering can contribute to a more sustainable world. All of our degree programmes are fully accredited by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE), the global professional body for chemical engineers.
