Students who wish to study Chemical Engineering at Cambridge spend their first year reading either Natural Sciences or Engineering. From a typical class total of sixty, just over half choose Natural Sciences and just under half choose Engineering. At the start of the second year students transfer into Part I of the Chemical Engineering Tripos and during the second and third years the core of basic chemical engineering is taught. No prior knowledge in Chemical Engineering is assumed and the course is carefully built up from lectures, example classes and workshops. Some of the work is carried out in teams.

Admissions Assessment: Engineering route

All applicants are required to take the pre-interview assessments for Engineering at an authorised centre local to them (for a lot of applicants, this will be their school/college). The assessment will consist of Maths/Physics MCQs (80 minutes) and Engineering specific questions (40 minutes). For further information on the assessment format, please view the entry requirements tab on: http://www.undergraduate.study.cam.ac.uk/courses/chemical-engineering.

Admissions Assessment: Natural Sciences route

All applicants are required to take the pre-interview written assessment for Natural Sciences at an authorised centre local to them (for a lot of applicants, this will be their school/college). The assessment will consist of Maths/Science MCQs (80 minutes) and In-depth Science questions (40 minutes).
