Our mix of multi-purpose and specialist laboratories provide ample space and facilities for carrying out a wide range of chemical tests. These practical facilities allow our students to mimic the processes undertaken by engineers in industry: researching and testing new products through to considering how to make them commercially viable, how they could be implemented on an industrial scale and modified and improved once they are in operation.
Take a virtual tour of the Chemical and Petroleum Lab.
Chemical, process and petroleum engineering students benefit from the detailed instruction they receive on industry-standard software packages
