Course summary

Programme description

Our biochemical and bioprocess engineering researchers are focused on the sustainable biological production of a wide range of added-value products, from biofuels and chemicals to biopharmaceuticals, using novel experimental and computational methodologies.

Our research combines chemical and process systems engineering, industrial biotechnology, molecular and systems biology and bioinformatics into novel cross-disciplinary approaches, with the aim of designing new bioprocesses and innovative products from renewable sources. We take a holistic view on the process-product chain leading to sustainable production with increased economic viability, pollution prevention and conservation of resources. Further information about this research area is available here.

The Departmenr of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science is a world leader in industrially relevant research and teaching in chemical engineering and related subjects.

We undertake leading-edge multidisciplinary, creative and relevant research on a wide range of topics. Focused on advancing the science and engineering of complex systems and addressing different scales and levels of complexity, the research in the Department is carried out within four main research themes:

Energy
Health
Sustainability
Water

Our breadth of research expertise and highly advanced facilities make us an ideal choice whatever your doctoral interest.

Facilitating research across chemical engineering and bioscience, chemistry, mathematics and analytical and measurement science, means we can offer you the benefits of a large multidisciplinary institution at the same time as ensuring you are given personal support for your professional development.

Explore the range of research projects we offer, as well as the development and network opportunities you can expect as one of our postgraduates.

Coursework and assessment

Students will meet regularly with an academic project supervisor, who is responsible for the project, ensuring that facilities and training are available to make good progress. Annual progress reviews will take place with an independent academic mentor to ensure that the supervision arrangements and progress are satisfactory.

All research programmes have personal and professional development training units to enhance transferable skills. Training courses cover themes such as thesis writing, business skills, career management and presentation skills.
