Course content

Chemical engineering research integrated with basic science, offers great potential for bringing essential understanding and innovative technological solutions to the challenges of the future. To this end, we collaborate widely with various academic and industrial research groups and are partners in the Centre for Process Systems Engineering, UCL CoMPLEX and the UCL Materials Chemistry Centre.

Research is a core activity in the department, and it covers a broad range of scales from the molecular to the complex systems level. Our work is organised in five research groups: Catalysis & Reaction Engineering, Electrochemical Engineering, Molecular & Engineering Thermodynamics, Multiphase Systems and Product & Process Systems Engineering addressing challenges in three research areas: Energy & CO2, Sustainable Advanced Manufacturing and Health & Environment.
