Course leaders and tutors
Abhishek leads three courses at Sheffield Hallam: BEng Energy Engineering, BEng Chemical Engineering and MEng Chemical Engineering
You will have the opportunity to arrange a year-long work placement in between your second and third years. This gives you a real-world experience to prepare you for your future career.
You're encouraged to gain practical experience through reverse engineering projects and cover other important associated subjects, such as the health and safety requirements of the industry. You will work on group and individual projects to develop your skills in applying your knowledge to chemical engineering problems.
We offer plenty of support outside the classroom by allocating you an academic tutor and through organising drop-in sessions where you can meet academics without appointment for a variety of support relating to your assignments, projects, exams, maths, English, statistics, computing and programming so no one is left behind.
This course prepares you for a career in
- the petrochemical industry
- the pharmaceutical industry
- power generation and utilities
- food manufacture
- new material development
