    I did want to do chemical engineering at university but I've dropped maths. I've heard it's possible to become a chemical engineer with a chemistry degree- if so, how? Also, what degree has better career prospects in the near future- biochemistry or chemistry ?Thanks.

    Smack might be able to provide more info but there are Mscs out there in Chemical Engineering that allow Chemistry undergrads.

    You can't study engineering without maths.

    I think it would be very difficult to become a chemical engineer with a chemistry degree. Chemical engineering is a kind of engineering, after all. Look into the discipline, see what it actually entails (especially in industry), and if it's something you fancy, take up maths again or pursue a foundation year.
