Meeting tomorrow’s energy requirements will need professional engineers with an in-depth knowledge of how energy resources are processed, how they are managed and the impact energy generation has on the environment. Fossil-based fuels such as gas and oil continue to play a significant role in today’s global energy market. In addition, environmental developments with alternative energy sources mean that the technological background of engineers working in the energy sector needs to become much broader. This degree encompasses a range of technologies from oil and gas production, through to renewable resources
This 5 year programme shares a common first 3 years with the BEng Chemical Engineering, with specialist topics being introduced in years 4 and 5. Final year students undertake a commercial tender exercise, working in multi-disciplinary groups to take on the role of a design house pitching for business to our industrial advisory board.
This programme also offers the chance to study for The Diploma in Industrial Training (DIT) which allows students the chance to work in the chemical and process industry before completing their final year(s) of study.
Facilities and labs
We have invested in our lab facilities to provide students with equipment of industrial standard found in industry. Our labs have a full range of services including modern cooling, steam and compressed air systems. Electronics and programming have been integrated into our teaching, with Arduino and Labview being used as graphical programming platforms. Students gain a basic understanding of electronics in the first two years to enble them to use these platforms.
Strong links with industry
Our Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) is comprised of both alumni and company representatives, who provide input into the development of our degree programme. The involvement of the IAB ensures our programmes stay relevant to the needs of industry and that our graduates are prepared for the jobs of the future.

The Chemical Engineering with Energy Engineering degree is accredited by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) on behalf of the Engineering Council * All students are provided with a student membership of the IChemE, which is paid for by the department.
*for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as an incorporated engineer and partially meeting the academic requirement for registration as a chartered engineer.
