Bath Chem Eng Modules

Hi I was wondering what the chem eng modules are like, as the website only has the compulsory ones, is it a good spread of Chem, Bio, Physics, CS, and business/law, like some universities or is it very very Chem based, that all the modules are Chemistry like other universities. Obviously I'm hoping for the former.
Hi there, you can find out more information regarding Chemical Engineering modules on the University of Bath Unit Catalogue pages, for all Chem Eng degree courses. The catalogues are a lot more detailed in terms of the specific content you will be covering: https://www.bath.ac.uk/catalogues/2023-2024/ce/UECE-AFB12.html#1

Hi, this is awesome but I was hoping for more info on the optional units you can pick, rather than info on the compulsory ones

Most chemical engineering degrees are highly programmatic (due to accreditation requirements) and therefore the majority of the modules you take in the first 2-3 years will be prescribed and you won't have much in the way of options. Optional modules in third and fourth year will be chemical engineering areas normally.

Note that chemical engineering is not a chemistry focused course and contains very little chemistry. If you think other chemical engineering courses are chemistry heavy I think you may be misinterpreting what the content of the modules is.

In the above linked catalogue from the University of Bath official rep, you can see the modules are in ECTS credits (not CATS). 60 ECTS is a full credit load for one year of a degree, and therefore there are no optional modules on the 3 year BEng Chemical engineering at all. The four year course allows you to take 20 ECTS of optional modules in final year, currently there are four options: https://www.bath.ac.uk/catalogues/2023-2024/ce/UECE-AFM12.html
