Throughout the MEng/BEng Chemical Engineering degree (levels 4 to 6) you will study a range of modules which (per module), the programme will involve practical laboratories, workshops and CDIO project work with academic support to develop your learning and provide authentic engineering experience.Some modules also include project supervision meetings with your academic supervisor, timetabled access to engineering workshops, makerspace, active learning laboratories and project laboratories with technician support.
In addition to the structured teaching times, you will also be required to undertake self-study. The typical amount of time for all activities associated with one 20-credit module is 200 hours which is made up of class contact time in lectures, tutorials and workshops, laboratory sessions, module preparation, module learning contextualisation, assessment research, development and submission, and examination revision.
To help develop your employability skills, additional drop-in academic and peer learning mentoring sessions may be timetabled to support you with developing skills and knowledge in specific topics.
Modules will typically be led by senior lecturers, principal lecturers and readers with laboratory learning supported by senior and junior technicians and postgraduate demonstrators. The academics are typically specialists and researchers in a particular field, for example, control and process control or thermodynamics.
