Welcome to the Department of Chemical Engineering.

Congratulations on your recent results - we are delighted that you are coming to study with us.

Your first few weeks at university are an important time both academically and socially. As well as introductory sessions organised by the University, there are a number of departmental sessions that we expect you to attend. Have a look at your induction timetable for details of the sessions.

Don’t worry about buying any books before you arrive. Academic staff will talk to you about recommended textbooks and other learning resources within the first few weeks.

Please ensure that you are fully registered and check your email regularly for any updates.

We are looking forward to meeting you. If you have any queries in the meantime, please contact the department reception ( 01225 386338, Department Reception).

Also, there is a Chemical Engineering Facebook page set up for new students joining the Department, or you can follow us on Twitter.

Best wishes,

Professor Tim Mays
