Chemical Engineering

The Cambridge Chemical Engineering course treats the first year at University as a ‘foundation year’ in which students choose between studying first-year Engineering or first-year Natural Sciences. Note that one great advantage of the Cambridge system is its flexibility. You are not absolutely committed to reading Chemical Engineering even if you specify it on your application form. For instance, it is usually possible to continue studying a pure science if you do first-year Natural Sciences, or another branch of engineering if you do first-year Engineering. Cambridge is thus an ideal choice for University applicants who aren’t quite certain which course they eventually want to study.
