IB: 38 points overall and award of IB Diploma to include Mathematics Higher Level at Grade 6, Chemistry Higher Level at Grade 6, plus one further Higher Level subject at Grade 6. Diploma must include Physics.
Entry to many degrees in Science & Engineering is possible via other qualifications (eg HNC/D, Access, SWAP).
Chemical engineers are responsible for the development, design and operation of processes that produce the materials and products we all depend on. These range from processes such as the fresh water and gas supplies to our homes, to products such as polymers, fertilizers, fuels, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, foodstuffs, paints, silicon chips, synthetic skin and many more. Chemical engineers play a leading role in new and emerging technologies such as nanotechnology, carbon capture and the production of renewable fuels, and increasingly work at the interface between engineering and the life sciences. These novel areas are reflected in the range of optional courses available to our students.
A Chemical Engineering degree opens the door to a fulfilling and varied career, with many exciting opportunities for employment in technical and management roles in a wide array of industries. Many of our students gain valuable experience spending six months in industry, in the UK and worldwide, as part of their degree programme.
