Chemical Engineering

Chemical Engineers have invented, designed and/or operated almost every product and service we know and love.  

Our world-renowned researchers and academics draw on biology, biochemistry, chemistry, engineering, physics and mathematics, as well as economics and finance to design and develop cutting-edge process systems for the extraction, transformation and recovery of materials. 

Chemical Engineering research. Converting food waste into fuel, gasification.


Our pioneering chemical engineering research helps to drive societal change in the sustainable use of finite resources. We help to tackle climate change, resource efficiency, and digitalisation focussing on water, energy, food and nutrition, health and wellbeing.
