Chemical Engineering: Trent/Swansea Dual Degree

Graduate with both a B.Sc. in Chemistry and a B.Eng. in Chemical Engineering in four years – half the time it would normally take to get both.

Simultaneously earn both a B.Sc. and B.Eng. degree in just four years through a new partnership between Trent University and Swansea University in the UK. In this rewarding integrated dual degree, you’ll spend your first two years studying Chemistry at Trent, gaining experience in modern experimental and theoretical chemistry, while using Trent’s world-class lab and instrumentation facilities. From there, you’ll travel across the ocean to Swansea’s picturesque seaside campus to complete a Chemical Engineering degree at one of the top 10 engineering schools in the UK. There, you can choose to complete summer placements to progress toward a P.Eng. 

This professionally accredited degree will equip you with knowledge and skills to design, operate and optimize chemical and physical processes, turning raw materials into valuable products for human use. Your studies will focus on established chemical engineering areas with application to energy, health, food, water, and the environment.
