BSc (Hons)Chemistry with Chemical Engineering

Why choose this course?

This course aims to:

  • develop your skills and knowledge in the main areas of chemistry (organic, inorganic, physical and analytical chemistry) and enable you to develop a strong awareness of the specialist application of chemical engineering in an industrial setting. This will encompass an introduction to chemical engineering, thermodynamics and fluids and then develop knowledge in transport processes and fluid dynamics, reaction engineering and incorporate a research/design project. In addition if you choose to undertake a Sandwich degree then the course will allow you to acquire technical skills in the workplace and enable you to integrate knowledge gained in the theoretical aspects of the course into the professional environment.
  • produce a graduate who is “fit for purpose”, who is ready for employment in the chemistry/pharmaceutical or a related industry, or who can progress to teaching, further study or research aspirations.

What happens on the course?

At each level of the course you will study a core of main pillars of Chemistry (Inorganic, Organic, Physical and Analytical Chemistry together with selected aspects of Chemical Engineering.

Why Wolverhampton?

  • Chemistry, and related science students, have excellent job prospects or go on to further study and/or research.
  • Our existing chemistry-related programmes, BSc Biochemistry and BSc Pharmaceutical Science have excellent student satisfaction rates (95% respectively) and we anticipate that our new Chemistry developments will achieve similar results.
  • Our compliment of existing, experienced staff (including several research professors), will expand as the course develops. We recently moved into our new £25m “state of the art” science facility. The new laboratory facilities were accompanied by generous investment in a range of new teaching, research and consultancy equipment.
  • Our chemistry-based subjects have maintained links with several local/regional chemical companies and we’ve had many successful collaborative research and development knowledge transfer programmes (KTP’s), our most recent was independently rated as “outstanding”, the highest grading possible. We shall continue to build upon our existing and expanding capacity to develop links with local employers.

Career path

The UK’s chemical industry is one of the leading industrial contributors to the national economy and there are many opportunities to apply chemical knowledge, principles and skills to a successful career in the chemistry, pharmaceutical science, chemical engineering or other chemistry-related disciplines. “Chemistry will underpin economic growth, say industry leaders”, it was reported in the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) publication, Chemistry World, on the “Strategy for delivering chemistry-fuelled growth of the UK economy”. Currently the Chemistry-using industries contribute ~£195bn to the UK economy with approximately £10bn coming from chemical manufacturing and £9bn from pharmaceutical manufacturing. The areas of chemical manufacture, process technology, product development and application, and formulation skills are key areas of these chemical sciences. In chemicals (including pharmaceuticals) 95.6% of UK companies are SME’s employing 42% of the total workforce and account for 29% of turnover.

If you choose not to go into the chemical industry there are still extensive career opportunities in teaching and academic research

What skills will you gain?

You will have studied a core of organic, inorganic, physical and analytical chemistry, the pillars of what can be considered to be “the central science” and have an integrated knowledge of these main areas of chemistry together with good practical skills, literacy, numeracy. You will have a high level of IT skills and be capable of logical, scientific, critical thinking and problem solving. In addition you will have studied many of the essential concepts of either Pharmaceutical Science or Chemical Engineering and will understand much of the principles and language of these sciences at the interface of chemistry. These skills will make you well equipped for the workplace, be it in a pharmaceutical science, chemistry or chemistry related environment or the wider world of work in general. You will also be well placed for further study and/or research if you so choose.

Who accredits this course?

We are currently working with the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) to achieve accreditation of our new BSc (Hons) Chemistry degree. This is an on-going process over the first three years of the Chemistry course and will mean that our first cohort of graduates (in July 2017) will be eligible for Associate Membership of the RSC shortly thereafter. We will approach the RSC for discussions concerning the potential accreditation of the new Chemistry with Chemical Engineering programme in due course.
