HND Chemical Engineering (Edexcel)

The Edexcel HND, Higher National Diploma in Chemical Engineering by flexible open / distance learning provides you with a programme of study over a range of disciplines to help you develop skills to progress your career through employment in chemical process plant industries.

The HND in Chemical Engineering course will prepare you for a senior technical or supervisory position in the chemical and biochemical process industries, or for further study leading to a BEng or MEng degree. Chemical engineers take science out of the laboratory and into the real world. They turn raw materials into useful products through changing their properties or how they interact with each other. Chemical engineers can be involved in a hugely diverse range of work, from designing and building cleaner nuclear power plants to ensuring clean water supplies through creating catalytic reactions which destroy harmful organic matter in water.

This HND course will help you develop knowledge and skills that employers want, within an institution that is well known for its links with the chemical and engineering industries.
