School of Chemical Engineering

The School of Chemical Engineering focuses on sustainability and societal challenges related to energy production, new drugs and biological products, and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions – all critical to the future of our planet. 

Through our globally recognised research and teaching, we are well-positioned to train the next generation of engineers to tackle these challenges and help transition to a more sustainable future. 

Our innovative solutions for sustainable products, future energy technologies, and novel catalysts for resource recovery and utilisation are contributing to the development of a circular economy – where waste is minimised, and resources are recycled and reused.
