Abstract: Climate change, the demands of growing populations, and our impact on the world require a move to more sustainable approaches presenting new challenges to Chemical Engineering and its education. The new Chemical Engineering degree programmes at the University of Southampton have this sustainability embedded throughout based on the sustainable development goals and will prepare our graduates to meet these challenges. Combining a solid foundation in Chemical Engineering with a knowledge of modern Chemistry the programmes will produce graduates that are able to meet the expectations of the industries of the future. The aim of the range of the Southampton Chemical Engineering programmes is to help develop the necessary breadth and depth of academic background for a career as a professional engineer in the industrial, consulting, and academic sectors; to gain the multidisciplinary skills that enable you to address problems covering the design, construction, maintenance, and operation of a wide range of systems and the understanding required to work at the interface of engineering and the chemical sciences, providing students with the depth of knowledge required to meet the challenges of industry and research in the 21st century.
