Students on the BA Chemical Engineering Degree spend their first year reading either Natural Sciences or Engineering, before embarking on the study of Chemical Engineering itself. The course leads to a BA after three years, and ordinarily an MEng, after four. The Department has strong links with industry, and Cambridge Chemical Engineers are highly employable.
Chemical Engineering via Engineering: good A-levels (or the equivalent) in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry are essential; A-level Further Mathematics is desirable.
Chemical Engineering via Natural Sciences: good A-levels (or the equivalent) in Mathematics and Chemistry are essential; AS-levels in one or more of Physics, Biology, and Further Mathematics are desirable.
