Course Introduction

Chemical engineering looks at the processes which cause materials to undergo chemical reactions and physical changes, producing products ranging from petrol and plastics to medicines, food and drink. You’ll prepare for a career in which you’ll research and test new products, make them commercially viable, implement them on an industrial scale and continue to modify them.
