Course Description

Chemical engineers design the processes that convert chemicals, raw materials, living cells, microorganisms and energy into the essential products of modern life.

Our programme provides an insight into basic chemistry, process engineering and computational engineering. You’ll understand how to alter the chemical, biochemical or physical state of a substance, processes used to create everything from personal care products to medicines to advanced functional materials, such as smart coatings.

You’ll also learn about the engineering principles used to design large-scale processing plants for everything from food to oil, with an emphasis on safety, sustainability and cost-effectiveness.

The programme is both practical and theoretical: you’ll be in the lab from the first year, working on projects relevant to the chemical engineering industry.

In the third year you’ll carry out a lab-based research project, based on your individual interests and integrated into the School’s world-leading research activities.

Entry Requirements

A-Level :- Grades AAB at A-Level. This must include A-Level Mathematics, and Physics or Chemistry. Excludes General Studies and Critical Thinking.

IB :- International Baccalaureate Diploma with a minimum of 34 points overall, including 6,6,5 from three Higher Level subjects. This must include Mathematics at Higher Level, and either Physics or Chemistry, also at Higher Level.

BTEC :- See our detailed subject and grade requirements.

Access HE :- We consider applications from students with the Access to Higher Education Diploma in a Physics and Mathematics based discipline. Entry will normally be to the BEng or BSc. The minimum academic requirement is to achieve 60 credits overall, with 45 credits at Level 3, of which 33 credits must be at Distinction and 12 credits at Merit or higher. Applications are considered on a case by case basis. Before a decision is made, applicants will be invited to a Maths test at Queen Mary, normally in April. This Maths test will assess whether an applicants ability in Maths is at the required level. Applicants will be contacted shortly after the test with a decision on their application.

GCSE :- Minimum five GCSE passes including English at grade C or 4.

EPQ :-  Alternative offers may be made to applicants taking the Extended Project Qualification. For further information please visit: qmul.ac.uk/undergraduate/entry/epq
