Chemical Engineering

Chemical Engineering

Chemical Engineers are at the forefront of scientific and technological developments; without them we wouldn’t have clean drinking water, petrol, antibiotics, or energy to power our world. As well as designing, constructing and operating chemical processes to create products we depend on every day, chemical engineers are tackling some of the world’s most urgent problems. They are working to develop sustainable solutions to energy generation, clean water supply, food production and plastic recycling, among other global challenges.

As a Chemical Engineering student, you’ll use chemistry, mathematics, biology and physics to understand the world on a molecular level. The subject also overlaps with mechanical, electrical and civil engineering with the design, development and operation of chemical plants.
