Chemical Engineering

A degree in Chemical Engineering is the best choice for those who loved Chemistry in high school, interested in combining Chemistry with development and production of material goods, medicaments, food. Graduates of Chemical Engineering receive a huge amount of practical and research Chemistry skills, which can provide a well-paid and prospective job in one of the most promising area of engineering.

chemical engineering

Basically, the aim of Chemical Engineering is turning nature materials into valuable products. Chemical Engineering is an interdisciplinary practical and research area, which combines methods and topics of chemistry, physics, mathematics, ecology, economics, biology, biochemistry and many other natural and experimental sciences.

Chemical Engineering program structure

Usually students completing a study program in Chemical Engineering receive a BEng (Bachelor of Engineering) or MEng (Master of Engineering) degree. These degrees can also be called BSci or MSci (Bachelor and Master of Science), it does not affect the program structure. The name of degree depends on the chosen university and country.

BEng program usually lasts four years, MEng program - five years or more. MEng program includes BEng program with additional courses, modules, research and practice.

Study program in Chemical Engineering often includes courses in Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics during the first years of education, last years are more specific and include more practical courses with high percentage of fieldwork and laboratory lessons.

Some universities encourage MEng and BEng students to spend a year abroad, studying in foreign university or practicing. The last year of education is usually dedicated to a final research project.

Entry requirements for Chemical Engineering applicants

Applicants for Chemical Engineering study programs need to hold high grades in the following subjects: Chemistry and Mathematics. Some universities also require high grades in other natural sciences - Biology and Physics.

Since most of the study programs you can find on our website are taught in English, language proficiency is required. Usually language requirements for applicants for technical specializations are less strict than for applicants for arts and humanities specializations, but applicants still have to provide a TOEFL, IELTS or other equivalent certificate proving language proficiency.

Applicants wishing to complete a degree in foreign country should also meet visa requirements of the country they have chosen. Some universities can help successful candidates with receiving a student visa.
