BEng (Hons) Chemical Engineering (2+2/4+0)
Chemical Engineering is the processing of materials on a commercial scale to make useful and valuable products. Typical processes and products include: petroleum refining, petrochemical, bulk chemicals, fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, fertilizers, food processing, fuels and energy production, water treatment and minerals processing. The course will equip graduates to work at a professional level on activities such as process design and plant operations management. The study programme provides students with core scientific and engineering knowledge together with a range of transferable skills including IT, communications, management, analysis and problem solving. Opportunities to work on projects and practical experimentation occur in all years of the course.
We offer two options for this degree:
Option 1: two years’ study in Ningbo, following by two years’ study on a fully integrated programme in Nottingham.
Option 2: four years’ study in Ningbo, with one-year “study abroad” possibilities.
Year One (Preliminary Year-Ningbo)
In this foundation year, the focus is on a special programme and English for academic purposes. Designed by highly-experienced staff at the Univsity’s Centre for English Language Education, this programme prepares students fully for their degree courses. Common modules of study across all degrees include:
written and oral communication and study skills
sciences such as physics and chemistry maths for engineering and computer science
engineering communication and IT skills. This module will have a hands-on approach to ensure competency in: Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Additionally, the module involves the use of a software environment (eg MATLAB) to help solve engineering and mathematical problems related concepts and methods studied during the year while introducing programming technical material in drawing, schematic and graphical format.
Students work in small groups to develop their academic English language skills.
Year Two (Qualifying Year-Ningbo)
Common modules of study covered in the first part of the year across all courses include:
professional engineering skills
engineering solid mechanics
fluid mechanics and hydraulics
introduction to electrical and electronics engineering
Specialized modules include:
process engineering fundamentals
heat and mass transfer
separation processes fundamentals
process engineering project
Year Three (Part I-Nottingham or Ningbo)
Students focus on common process operations and equipment including design methods.
Other subject include:
There is intermediate scale laboratory work
Year Four (Part II-Nottingham or Ningbo)
Students will undertake laboratory pilot plant-scale work.
Key subjects include:
safety and project management
study of reactors
high added-value product design
Students will work on a large group project plus specialized topics of interest.
