BEng Chemical Engineering (including a Foundation Year)

University of Chester

100% score for overall student satisfaction

- NSS 2017

Chemical engineers develop innovative processes to turn raw materials into useful products such as fuels, plastics, foods and medicines. On this course you will learn the key set of chemical engineering principles and understand how to use them for a huge range of applications, such as eliminating harmful emissions of greenhouse gases.

We are proud to be the only university in the country to have achieved a perfect 100% score for overall student satisfaction in the 2017 National Student Survey (NSS 2017) in the subject area of Chemical, Process and Energy Engineering.


Our BEng and MEng degrees are fully accredited by the IChemE, and have been designed in consultation with major recruiters of chemical engineering graduates. We have a strong, supportive culture underpinned by interactive, problem-based learning and research-active faculty. In addition, every student has a personal academic tutor, who will support the student in both the academic and practical aspects of university life.

Preparing students for professional success is a key part of our mission. At Chester, all chemical engineering students complete work placements as an integral part of their degree. Opportunities to develop professional skills are embedded throughout the degree programmes and good staff-to-student ratios help students build confidence, for example, in giving presentations and participating in class.

We are part of the Department of Physical, Mathematical and Engineering Sciences, and you can find more information about our facilities and research on our departmental pages.
