MEng, BEng Chemical Engineering

Year 2

(Award available for year: Diploma of Higher Education)

Learning outcomes

On completion of the year, students should:

- understand more complex process engineering topics in the areas of fluid flow, mass and energy balances, heat and mass transfer;
- understand how different types of process engineering equipment operate and how such plants are controlled;
- be capable of using advanced mathematical techniques to solve complex process engineering problems;
- be familiar with health and safety and complex environmental issues relating to process engineering operations;
- be able to use IT modelling software to solve specific chemical engineering design problems;
- be able to plan, research and undertake a simple research project on a chemical engineering topic;
- be able to carry out a range of experiments designed to illustrate process engineering concepts, and present their findings, arguments and analysis in the form of written reports;
- be capable of adjusting to professional and chemical engineering-specific boundaries.

Transferable (key) skills

Students will have had the opportunity to acquire, as defined in the modules specified for the programme:

- qualities and transferable skills necessary for employment related to the subject area(s) studied;
- skills necessary for the exercising of personal responsibility;
- decision making.


Achievement will be assessed by a variety of methods in accordance with the learning outcomes of the modules specified for the year/programme and will include:

- demonstrating the ability to apply a broad range of aspects/competencies of the discipline/profession to complex, albeit standard, situations and simple, albeit novel or atypical, instances;
- work that is often descriptive in nature but drawing on a wide variety of material;
- demonstrating basic professional competencies relevant to the discipline;
- the ability to evaluate and criticise received opinion.
