About the Department of Process & Chemical Engineering
The Department of Process & Chemical Engineering offers a BE (Hons) degree in Process & Chemical Engineering (CK601) containing important elements of sustainability, ethics and environmental awareness and with specialisation options in Energy & Environmental and Pharmaceutical & Biopharmaceutical. CK601 combines the best of fundamental maths, physics and chemistry through modules that develop logical problem-solving and gives graduates the skills to excel in both technical and management career paths. There aren't too many degrees that qualify a graduate in such a specific area but yet allow such a broad choice of career. Don't forget the huge number of Multinational CEOs that are Engineers by qualification.
The BE in Process & Chemical Engineering is a four year full time (NFQ Level 8) programme, fully accredited to the highest possible levels respectively by both Engineers Ireland and by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (UK) (to MEng (masters) level). Central Applications Office (CAO) first round cut-off points for the course in 2012 are 405 (CAO course code CK601).
The Department also offers a full range of other programmes from NQAI levels 7 to 10, including a part-time Certificate & Diploma in Process & Chemical Engineering, a distance learning MEngSc in Pharmaceutical Engineering and research based degrees at both Masters and PhD levels (see here for more details).
