Chemical engineering uses chemistry, physics and mathematics to convert raw materials or chemicals into more useful or valuable forms. A great variety of process industries serve the needs of society.
In this double degree you will explore the development, design and operation of processes for the extraction, conversion and recovery of materials. You’ll also develop the skills for a career in a modern analytical or industrial laboratory.
