Chemical Engineering is used in industrial, biological and environmental fields for the production of materials such as fuels, fertilisers, foods, alcohol, polymers and pharmaceuticals.

Graduates are employed in a very wide range of industries including chemical, mineral, pharmaceutical, food and energy industries.
