What is chemical engineering?

BEng in Chemical engineering relates to the design, operation and optimisation of processes used to produce valuable products from raw materials on a large scale. These valuable products are crucially important to almost every sphere of modern society, be it in the form of basic consumables or commodities.

Processes designed and operated by chemical engineers are also important for the delivery of services such as supply of potable water, pollution prevention and environmental management. The chemical engineer therefore plays a pivotal role in society and has the opportunity to improve the everyday lives of people!
