Course content

This integrated four-year doctoral programme is delivered by the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Catalysis. The programme provides postgraduate training in catalysis and reaction engineering through a one-year MRes, followed by a three-year PhD.

The Centre is a joint venture between the universities of Bath, Bristol and Cardiff. Students are based in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Bath.

The Centre addresses some of society's biggest challenges through catalysis:

  • clean energy generation;
  • environmental clean-up of air and water;
  • sustainable manufacture.

Students develop an advanced knowledge of traditional and emerging catalysis disciplines. Based in industrial and global contexts, students gain the research and professional skills needed to drive the future of the UK catalysis sector.
