About our Teaching
Chemical engineering applies science to the design, construction and operation of processes in which materials undergo changes. The applications of these changes are necessary for the production of commodities essential to our everyday life. These include food and drink, pharmaceuticals, fertilisers, man-made fibres, plastics, fuels and energy.
Chemical Engineers are involved in developing new processes, synthesising new products and optimising the performance of existing process systems.
At Sheffield we aim to give you a thorough understanding of chemical engineering by combining theoretical aspects with hands-on practical experience. This will equip you to enter and succeed in a wide range of careers and to meet the challenge of working within an ever-changing discipline.
We offer both undergraduate and postgraduate taught programmes of study, as well as postgraduate research degree programmes.
