Course content

Our Department of Chemical Engineering is a highly active, research intensive community of more than 20 full-time academic staff plus research students, post-doctoral research fellows and visitors from all over the world.

Chemical Engineers are fantastically well-placed to tackle some of the global challenges facing us over the next 50 years. We have a strong and growing research programme with world-class research activities and facilities, focusing on industry’s and society’s needs; for instance the commercial production of stem cells, disinfection of hospital wards, novel drug delivery methods, advanced water treatment and continuous manufacturing of pharmaceutical products.

We work closely with other University departments in multidisciplinary research as well as with industry and with researchers in universities worldwide. Our research is split into several key themes, and in recognition of our cutting edge research expertise, we have recently been selected as a lead partner in the EPSRC/MRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Regenerative Medicine.

We have an enterprising culture within the Department through our successful industrial collaborations, spin-out companies and knowledge transfer partnerships. We have close working relationships with major companies in the chemical, pharmaceutical, food and process industries, including AstraZeneca, BP, British Sugar, Carlsberg, E.ON, Exxon, GlaxoSmithKline, PepsiCo and Unilever to name but a few.

We attract over £3 million annually of research income, and have almost 50 PhD studentsworking on projects of global importance.
