About this program

Chemical Engineering, BEng

Chemical Engineers pioneer materials and technologies of the future; they design and develop the processes behind today’s most useful products. In studying this program, you will further develop your knowledge in chemistry and engineering, and develop the skills for a rewarding career.

Chemical Engineers do not work in isolation and modern engineering is just as much about effective teamwork and communication, as it is the underlying science. As a result, our accredited Chemical Engineering program recognises the broad field of the subject by starting with a general first year, which is shared among all engineering subjects at Lancaster.

You will explore core themes of design, materials, thermodynamics and heat transfer, along with appropriate mathematical study in the first year. Alongside these, you will develop your design, problem-solving, management and leadership skills.

Following the first year, where you will have developed a solid foundation of engineering knowledge and begun to explore a variety of different areas of the discipline, you will have the opportunity to consider and plan your academic progression. At this stage, you may choose to begin your Chemical Engineering study, or move onto any of our other specialist programs.

In the second year, you will begin to encounter specialist modules in chemical engineering, and you will continue to develop your core skills as an engineer. This year, you will also be encouraged to engage with and solve increasingly open-ended, real-world problems. Alongside the technical modules, you will develop your creativity, entrepreneurial and analytical skills, improving your employability.

On this program, you may decide to spend a year in industry, gaining valuable experience and enhancing your employability. We have extensive links built through our leadership in research and have students undergoing placements with multinational corporate companies through to smaller specialist SMEs. We would recommend the most appropriate time to do this would be at the end of year two, once you have gained a reasonable amount of engineering knowledge.
