School of Chemical Engineering & Analytical Science


The School brings together different disciplines, from chemical engineering to bioscience to chemistry, mathematics, and analytical and measurement science.

We are one of the largest chemical engineering departments in the UK and with traditional strengths in process integration, crystallisation, industrial sustainability, and bioprocessing we aim to extend the boundaries of the chemical engineering discipline.

The overall vision of the School is to develop and promote chemical engineering as a discipline that creates practical and sustainable advances for the overall benefit of society.

Research is organised around a matrix of 5 informal themes:

  1. Sustainable Engineering
  2. Process Development and Integration
  3. Molecular Systems and Biomaterials
  4. Multi-Scale Modelling
  5. Instrumentation and Analytical Science

Expertise in these groupings enables us to address key multi-disciplinary societal challenges related to energywaterfood and nutrition, and health and well-being.

We benefit from a range of new research facilities including the new £16M James Chadwick Building for large-scale chemical engineering research as well as involvement in multi-disciplinary Universityresearch institutes.

We also aspire to develop an exemplary record of knowledge transfer and to harness our research capability to produce the best environment for student education.
