UCL (University College London)

Course Introduction

Chemical engineering research integrated with basic science, offers great potential for bringing essential understanding and innovative technological solutions to the challenges of the future. To this end, we collaborate widely with various academic and industrial research groups and are partners in the Centre for Process Systems Engineering, UCL CoMPLEX and the UCL Materials Chemistry Centre. Research is a core activity in the department, and it covers a broad range of scales from the molecular to the complex systems level. Our work is organised in three research groups: Catalysis and Reaction Engineering, Multiphase Systems and Product and Process Systems Engineering addressing challenges in three research areas: Energy and CO2, Sustainable Advanced Manufacturing and Health and Environment. Recent graduates have secured positions in a wide range of industries, from engineering to finance.
