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.
The third year Design Project is a key component of our courses. 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.
The Chemical Engineering (Energy and Environment) course from The University of Manchester graduates enter a diverse range of industry sectors including food and drink, chemical, oil, gas and petrochemical, pharmaceutical, fast moving consumer goods, energy generation and waste treatment. They work in design, operations, as consultants or undertake research and development.
Others use the skills they have gained for a career in non-chemical engineering sectors such as business, finance, marketing, banking, insurance, accountancy and IT.
