Studying these programmes you can expect to acquire the essential core knowledge and skills of chemical engineering enhanced with added emphasis on the minimisation of environmental impacts. The programme will provide you with core scientific and engineering knowledge coupled with a wide range of transferable skills which will together enable you to create environmentally responsible solutions to the engineering challenges of tomorrow.
MEng students will need to undergo at least 12 weeks of industrial training in an external institution and meet appropriate coursework requirement before starting 4th year of study.

* Chemical engineering students only.
** Chemical engineering with environmental engineering students only.
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.
