Calling all ChemEng students from different Uni's...
Thought I would start a forum joining ChemEng students from all Uni's purpose;
What Uni do you study ChemEng?
How is ChemEng at your Uni?
How's the workload?
Also helping each other out with Assignments, dissertation and general help and advice
I think this would also help anyone looking to do ChemEng to gain an insight into our lives in our Uni's.

I'll start, am at Teesside University (not the best but hey I like it here), currently in placement year, my Uni's workload is usually 50:50 practical and theory everything we learn we apply to company based projects and show case the majority to companies.
Hope to meet a lot of fellow ChemEng's

I for one would like to get this thread going!

I'll be starting in September 2014, and transferring from a BSc (Hons) Natural Sciences degree from the OU, which I am half-way through. I'll go into year three (four year degree as it's a Scottish uni) and study by part-time distance learning.

What Uni do you study ChemEng?
Strathclyde.

How is ChemEng at your Uni?
TBC

How's the workload?
TBC

Agreed! Especially about going over problems together and helping each other out.

How many hours do u usually do in imperial ie 9am to 8pm lectures? (Trust me I had a day like that loool), and do you guys do projects in your first year? Here at Teesside we did about 2 technical projects in our first year one small one, and one industrial

And me!

Out of interest how did you find the introductions to thermodynamics/fluid mechanics? I'm trying to learn them to prepare as I won't go into first year and have an easy start!

And did you draw on anything in particular from your A levels? I haven't studied thermodynamics much at all so I was wondering how much you knew before you started.

To be truthful I had found the introduction to thermo quite difficult but managed very well during revision times with books as; thermodynamics an engineering approach by Yunus and even thermodynamics for dummies. So got a good grade in the end for that one lool. Chemistry Alevels helps in understand thermo and physics as well. I had brought my chemistry alevel book and so it came on handy.

Fluid mechanics was awesome fluid mechanics fundamental and applications by Yunus is very good ^^

My advice would be to look up some lectures on YouTube and prepare yourself that way, if you can find the content of how you will be taught it at Uni and then find the matching lectures
