    Course Summary

    One of the few things that has been truly constant about the human world is our tendency to produce and use more and more energy every year. As we come face to face with the environmental effects of this fact, though, it becomes evident that not only must new forms of energy production be realised, the old methods need to be made more and more efficient.

    This course teaches young engineers the fundamental scientific and mathematical principles they’ll need to understand the challenges the chemical and energy industries face, as well as the advanced state of the art techniques currently being explored and brought to bear on those challenges.

    This course can be taken as a 3-year BEng program, or a 4-year MEng master’s program.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Course Outline

    Years 1 and 2:

    Your foundational years will be spent studying the core curriculum of all of the University of Leeds’ engineering degrees. Topics covered include thermodynamics, mass and energy, materials science, and fluid dynamics.

    At this point it is very easy to transfer to another degree type before specialising.

    Year 3:

    If you stay with the Chemical and Energy Engineering specialty, you’ll learn more detailed theory as well as focusing on design.

    Year 4 (MEng):

    If you stay on for a 4th year, your degree will be a Masters of Engineering. Your coursework will include modules on product design and development, fuel processing, renewable energy technologies and advanced reaction engineering.

    Learning & Teaching

    Leeds University champions integrated learning techniques. These include group tutorials and online learning, seminars and workshops and of course large lecture classes, as well as practical and laboratory time to hone your real world skills.

    You will also have a personal academic tutor, with whom you will meet weekly with a group of 4 other students throughout your first year, and individually not less than once per semester.

    Career Possiblities

    This degree prepares you for work in a very wide selection of industries, and employment prospects are excellent in virtually all of them. UL Engineering graduates have taken roles as data analysts, chemical engineers, process engineers and production technologists. They have gone to work for pharmaceutical giants, metals recycling firms, and in many parts of the public sector.

    Students also have the option of an Industrial Placement Year, arranged by the university’s Employability Team. This can be at any of the more than 100 companies with which the University of Leeds regularly works, and will give you critically marketable work experience.

    Entry Credit

    Entry Requirements for UK and EU-nationals

    The University of Leeds’ Chemical and Energy Engineering degree program requires you to have achieved 3 A Levels of A*AA or better. These must include Mathematics, as well as either Chemistry or Physics.

    Alternatively, a GCSE score of English Language C/4 or better can be accepted.

    Entry Requirements for overseas (non-EU) students

    International students must be fluent in written and Spoken English. That can be evidenced with an IELTS score of 6.0 overall, with no component scoring less than 5.5.

    They must also have scholastic accreditation equivalent to that required for UK and EU students. Full details on what qualifications are considered equivalent can be found here.
