Course Summary

Overview

The modern society relies on the work of Chemical Engineers who develop and design the processes that make the useful products for the society by efficient use and management of resources including water and energy while controlling health and safety procedures and protecting the environment.

Chemical Engineering provides essential tools based on the concept of sustainability and low carbon footprint for changing raw materials into useful products in a safe and cost effective way. Chemical Engineers understand how to alter the chemical, biochemical or physical state of a substance, to create everything from health care products (face creams, shampoo, perfume, drugs) to food (dairy products, cereals, agro-chemicals) and water (desalination for freshwater) to energy (petroleum to nuclear fuels).

Your study at MSc level at Bradford will be a foundation for life aimed at developing a deep understanding of advanced technical principles, analytical tools, and competence in their application together with a wide range of management, personal and professional skills. The course will provide you with essential tools based on the concept of sustainability and low carbon footprint for changing raw materials into useful products in a safe and cost effective way.

Career prospects

The chemical and allied industry is expected to grow more rapidly than the average for the whole of manufacturing industry.

This, when coupled with the increasing appreciation of the value of chemical engineering in many areas such as the foodstuffs and pharmaceutical industry, metals extraction, medical science, and environmental protection, means your prospects as a graduate are bright.

Recent graduates have gained employment at organisations including: Unilever, Lorien Engineering Solutions, SUEZ UK, PLadis Global, IMI Precision Engineering, British Sugar, KPMG.
