Chemical engineers change the world. From oil and gas to electronics and chemicals you’ll be using things designed and made by chemical engineers every day. Traditionally, chemical engineering has been about fuel, but now it’s much more than that. There are still many chemical engineers working in power production, however many graduates now go into the sustainable and ecological areas of the industry. During this course you’ll be trained to ensure the safe and profitable production of the chemicals and materials required to create products such as clothing, food, medicine, transport and home entertainment systems.
This Chemical Engineering (Hons) from Aston University is designed to develop your engineering skills, in the context of a firm grounding in chemistry. To ensure this, you will share your first year with chemists, giving you a good grounding in the subject before gaining a deeper insight into the industrial processes.
Career prospectsIn addition to the traditional oil and chemical-based industries, you will be well equipped to go into a wide range of careers including food production, pollution control, environmental protection, energy and resource conservation, waste recovery and recycling, medical science, health and safety, research, management and consultancy.Our graduates have a strong record of finding suitable positions, reflecting the fact that the UK is a major contributor to the global chemical industry. Some of the companies our graduates have gone on to join include: Procter and Gamble, Stone and Webster, BP, ExxonMobil, Kodak, PriceWaterhouseCooper, Unilever, AMEC, British Energy, Kappa, Mowlem, BT, Corus and Pfizer.
