Academic year 2020 - 2021

This course will begin on schedule in the Autumn and we plan to reopen our campuses. We are looking forward to seeing you in person, if travel and visa arrangements allow. If you can’t travel to campus in time for the start of term, we want to reassure you that your academic Department has made plans which make it possible to offer you a high-quality remote educational experience during the Autumn term.

Your teaching will be a combination of on-campus (in-person) and remote learning (online). We call this ‘multi-mode’ delivery. Depending on official government guidance throughout the entirety of next academic year, the ‘multi-mode’ balance may be subject to change. We hope to be able to offer you increased on-campus teaching and learning activities throughout the year.

For more information about multi-mode delivery, your learning experience and the steps we’ll be taking to keep you safe on campus if you are able to join us, please see our COVID-19 information for applicants and offer holders. On this page you'll also find Chemical Engineering course programme details for new and returning students.

Undergraduate Chemical Engineering programme

The Department of Chemical Engineering of Imperial College London is one of the oldest chemical engineering departments in the country and first offered undergraduate courses in 1937.

Today we offer an integrated four-year programme leading to the award of an MEng degree in chemical engineering, one of the first in the country to be recognised as fulfilling the most recent Engineering Council MEng requirements.

One stream of this course involves a year spent abroad studying at one of our partner universities. We also offer a joint course in Chemical Engineering with Nuclear Engineering.

Please see the student terms and conditions on the Imperial College London website for important information that you need to be aware of prior to becoming a student at Imperial.
