Organization profile

Organisation profile

Our innovative research, prestigious degree programmes and strong relationship with the commercial sector make us one of the most successful Chemical Engineering departments in the UK. 


Our degrees are designed to meet the needs of industry and prepare students for a rewarding career in engineering.

We offer a range of study options:

Our programmes develop technical, communication and management skills and feature a strong design element. They have all been awarded the highest level of professional accreditation by the Institution of Chemical Engineers.


We carry out internationally recognised research. Our work focuses on sustainable technology and covers three main areas:

  • Advanced Materials and Porous Solids
  • Biochemical and Biomedical Engineering
  • Catalysis and Reaction Engineering

We have several outstanding research groups that often exchange ideas. Our staff also collaborate with academics, businesses and educational establishments across the world.

Our Department's research has been ranked top ten in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF), with 89% of the research submitted to the Aeronautical, Mechanical, Chemical and Manufacturing Engineering unit of assessment deemed world leading or internationally excellent.

Industry links

We have extensive links with industry and work with businesses of all sizes. We also offer our expertise to companies through knowledge transfer partnerships.
