Chemical Engineering with Environmental Engineering MEng (Hons)

5 years including placement year, starting in September 2019

You can apply for this course from September 2018.

Learn the core knowledge and technical skills of chemical engineering and focus on the environmental challenges of new technologies, processes and products.

This is a new course for 2019 and is subject to final approval.

On our course, you’ll gain a comprehensive understanding of the foundation principles and practices of chemical engineering. We’ll help you transition to university life by giving you the digital skills and tools needed throughout your degree and useful for your career.

Problem-based learning gives you the confidence to critically apply mathematical, scientific and engineering knowledge to projects. A mix of practical work in laboratories and theory in lectures and seminars gives you the breadth of learning needed to become confident in the subject.

You’ll also develop transferable skills such as problem solving, teamwork and resource management. Integrating these with your technical knowledge, you’ll learn how to tackle complex, and often ambiguous, engineering problems.

In your final year, you’ll have the opportunity to build on your chemical engineering knowledge by specialising in environmental engineering. You’ll focus on aspects that address social, environmental and health issues, as well as sustainability. You can switch between this and our MEng Chemical Engineering course up until the end of your third year. This is so you can use your study experience so far to help you decide on your final degree.

If you decide on environmental engineering, your final year will focus on advancing your knowledge in environmental science and engineering. You’ll explore the economic, legislative and ethical issues that control environmental protection and sustainability. Areas you cover will include clean technologies such as water treatment and waste management.

Studying an MEng gives you an in-depth study experience through advanced taught units and project work. You can explore topics in more depth through a semester-long research project that can be completed at Bath, a university abroad or in industry. Our MEng degrees also fulfil the educational requirements you need to become a Chartered Engineer.

Teaching

Our department’s great staff and student community provides a friendly and supportive environment to learn in. We deliver teaching complemented by guest lectures from practitioners to give you a professional and practical perspective on the subject. You’ll learn from expert academic staff whose industrial collaborations, research and entrepreneurial activities feed into our teaching and contribute to your learning experience.

Facilities

Specialist facilities are central to your study experience. Our laboratory facilities range from bench scale to pilot scale and are specially equipped to enhance your education in becoming a chemical engineer.

You’ll have access to:

  • our newly developed undergraduate teaching labs, containing continuous reactors, microbial bioreactors and a range of other bespoke equipment designed to highlight core chemical engineering concepts
  • reaction engineering research labs where the next generation of sustainable products are being produced
  • advanced separation research laboratories focused on the synthesis and characterisation of low-cost membrane technology
  • high-spec biochemical engineering labs where the fuels and foods of the future are being developed

Watch a video tour of our laboratory facilities to see the equipment you could be using as part of your degree.

Careers

By becoming a chemical engineer, you’ll be able to make a valuable difference to the world around you. You could be part of building a better future through delivering clean water, designing greener products, or researching new ways to generate energy. You’ll also be joining one of the highest-paid professions in the UK.

With a chemical engineering degree from Bath, you can be confident that you’ll graduate with the specific engineering knowledge and transferable skills to help start your career. You could take on technical and managerial roles across industry and commercial sectors. For example, you could follow a career in alternative fuels, healthcare industries, water treatment, production of consumables such as foodstuffs and toiletries in the fast moving consumer goods industries, and oil and gas.

Compulsory units and credits

At Bath, our courses are made up of units of study. Compulsory units cover core concepts that you'll need to understand as part of your degree programme. Some of our courses also offer the opportunity for you to study optional units. These allow you to specialise in particular areas of knowledge that interest you.

As an undergraduate, you will be expected to take 60 credits (ECTS) in each academic year. These are usually split into 30 credits for each semester you study. Sixty credits are the equivalent of 1200 notional hours of study; this includes contact time with staff and your own independent learning.

Placement


A placement gives you the chance to gain experience and develop skills in a commercial or industrial environment, and can count towards becoming chartered. The professional knowledge you gain can benefit the rest of your degree and improve your career prospects. It can also be an opportunity to earn a salary during your degree.

You can decide whether you want to apply for a placement up until the end of your second year. Placement opportunities cannot be guaranteed but you will receive tailored support from our specialist team to help you secure a placement.

Entry requirements


Your application, especially your personal statement, should explain your motivation for choosing this degree and any relevant non-academic interests and achievements. Your application is more likely to be successful if you demonstrate a strong interest in chemical engineering and environmental engineering through relevant reading, extracurricular or co-curricular activities, or work experience.

Your previous academic study is also important. For example, if you have taken GCSEs then we prefer applicants with a strong set (such as grade A*, 8 or 9 in at least five GCSEs or grade A or 7 in the majority of your GCSEs). We also prefer applicants with strong Mathematics and Chemistry GCSE grades. This is in addition to our essential GCSE requirements.

You will need a strong performance in both Mathematics and Chemistry as part of your entry qualifications. We prefer applicants who have also studied Physics, Biology or have additional study in Mathematics (such as Further Mathematics A level), with Physics being the most useful to prepare you for studying this course.

This information is a guide and we consider students applying with Open University Credits on a case-by-case basis. We will consider your application carefully and take note of any previous qualifications or relevant work experience. We may be able to consider alternative units to those listed. Please contact us to discuss your profile.

Taking OU credits may be counted as degree-level study by the Student Loans Company and therefore may be counted as previous study and have an impact on your ability to access student loans/grants for the entirety of your chosen degree. We recommend that you discuss this in detail with the SLC before following this progression route to the University of Bath.

Combinations of qualifications Typical offer

Your application will be considered individually based on the particular combination of qualifications and subjects that you are taking.
