Careers

You will be equipped for a career in chemical engineering, working as a professional in areas such as process and product design or plant management, or for work in other disciplines benefiting from the technical and problem-solving skills you have acquired.

Additionally, the chemical engineering with environmental engineering degrees equip you for a career in environmental engineering, perhaps working as a professional in environment related functions such as waste treatment, pollution control or materials recycling.

As a Nottingham chemical engineering graduate you will be highly sought-after by companies worldwide. With our unique combinations of chemical and environmental engineering, we are well placed to provide multi-skilled graduates to work in a diverse range of industries including energy, oil and gas, pharmaceutical, food and environmental services, as well as government agencies and departments around the world.
