Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology


Update on 2021/22 Tripos teaching

Whilst the expectation is that in-person teaching will resume in the Michaelmas Term (and beyond), the Department may have to revert to online teaching, should the public health situation worsen.

It should be noted, however, that certain aspects of the course may be delivered online, to improve the educational experience for students or in the event that a lecturer is unable to give their course in person. Academic staff have been asked to issue a statement on how they plan to deliver their material, either during their first lecture or on their course Moodle pages at the start of term.

Careers Information

  • IChemE has published a six-part video series – ‘Your career in chemical engineering’ to showcase the diversity that a career in chemical engineering can offer.

    The videos feature 18 chemical engineers from recent graduates to executive leaders who share their career journeys and practical tips for boosting employability prospects.  

    From researching sustainable vitamins from microalgae to managing airport operations, and regulating explosive materials to developing devices for diabetics, they give an insight into the variety of career opportunities in chemical engineering. Plus, they explain the key skills they have gained that have helped them transition between sectors and to managerial roles.
