Chemical Engineering course gets global accreditation


The University of Wolverhampton has secured accreditation from global, professional engineering institution, IChemE, for its Chemical Engineering degree course.

The Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) has over 37,000 members in over 100 countries worldwide, was founded in 1922 and awarded a Royal Charter in 1957 and has offices in Rugby, London, Melbourne, Wellington, New Zealand, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.

The University offers the Undergraduate degree course in Chemical Engineering at the University’s City Campus in Wolverhampton.

Professor Phil Cox, Director of Chemical Engineering in the School of Engineering at the University, said: “Chemical Engineering holds the second highest position in the country for graduate pay – only just beaten by dentistry.  In terms of careers on offer, you could end up working on an oil rig in the Middle East, in a pharmaceutical plant or in the Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) industry.  It really does open doors.

“Our course is aimed squarely at producing engineers and covers energy resource exploitation and management, industrial practices and processes, chemical thermodynamics and reaction engineering, process design and control, health and safety, protection of the environment, and petroleum and chemical refining.”

Students studying for Chemical Engineering degrees enjoy free membership/associate entry for IChemE which includes a digital subscription to The Chemical Engineer magazine, networking, events and webinars, resources for young members and online access to IChemE journals.

Anyone interested in studying Chemical Engineering at the University of Wolverhampton should register for the next Open Day on Saturday 15th June 2019 where Professor Cox will be doing talks and tours at the City Campus, Wolverhampton.
