For prospective students
We advise you to read the Chemical Engineering page thoroughly and (depending on your preference for first year), the Natural Sciences or Engineering pages as well. See in particular the sections on applying, what we are looking for, resources, and student perspectives. King's also provides more general advice about developing your interests.
For offer holders
Chemical Engineering via Natural Sciences students may find this advice useful and should ensure that they submit the Part IA options form linked from the Natural Sciences reading list. The deadline is 1 August.
It is not essential to read any book between completing a Part IA course and starting Part I Chemical Engineering, however the faculty provides a few reading suggestions.
