Course summary

The PhD programmes in Chemical Engineering attract students from diverse disciplinary backgrounds such as statistics, maths, electrical engineering, chemistry and physics. You may work on multidisciplinary research projects in collaboration with colleagues across the University or from external organisations.

Research in the School of Engineering is cross-disciplinary and our strategy is to ensure that our research groups grow and provide a balanced portfolio of activities for the future. This is achieved in part through MPhil and PhD supervision.

Advanced materials

Every article, instrument, machine or device we use depends for its success upon materials, design and effective production. We work on a wide range of materials topics including:

new material development
optimising of materials processing
testing and evaluation at component scale and at high spatial resolution
modelling
failure analysis

Much of our work relates to materials and processes for renewable energy generation, energy efficiency, carbon capture and storage. We also use biological and bio-inspired processes to develop new functional materials.

Working with industry

Industrial involvement is a part of some PhDs and covers a wide range of activities such as:

food processing
water treatment systems
process intensification technology
solvent extraction
polymer reactors
process modelling and control
design of electrochemical reactors and fuel cells
clean technology.
