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.
Typical offers require
