Course Introduction

This course takes a forward-thinking approach to the Chemical Engineering degree programme and develops concepts associated with the key skills, process development and ends by relating the cutting-edge research of the staff with teaching in the final year through project and group work. We use the expertise developed at LSBU with a vibrant and creative team to deliver an exciting undergraduate programme. We acknowledge that at the heart of future Chemical engineering is a core understanding of fundamental engineering and there is a traditional path to an exciting and ever-changing career in a wide range of technology sectors. In this programme we have brought together all the essentials of Chemical Engineering to highlight and develop a deep understanding of the subject and open a wide range of career options.

With demand for graduates across industrial sectors from energy to food and drink, pharmaceuticals, and the financial and environmental sectors, chemical engineering is a great choice. This course will prepare you for a career in which you'll research and test new products - be they petrol, plastics, medicines, food or drink - and make them commercially viable.

We offer the opportunity for all undergraduate Home/EU students to undertake a work placement, internship or work experience while studying a full-time course starting in September 2020.
