Why choose this course
With the oldest continuing chemical engineering programme in England, we are a highly respected and award-winning department with a wealth of experience and expertise in the subject.
The interdisciplinary Chemical and Process Engineering Research research work at the University of Surrey involves activities with cross-cutting themes, investigating materials and devices with the Advanced Technology Institute while addressing challenges in information technology. The recently established Centre for Advance Process Intensification offers a research platform for sustainable manufacturing, leading to the development of new and improved concepts of processing methods and equipment for chemical and energy conversion systems.
What you will study
As a PhD student you will go through a confirmation process in which you will need to produce a report to demonstrate your understanding of the research field and your project results. Your ability to carry out critical literature review, scientific writing skills and ability to carry out research and produce meaningful results will be evaluated by your supervisor and two examiners. Once you have passed the confirmation stage, your PhD research project can begin.
At the end of the second year, you will be expected to submit a scientific manuscript draft containing your most important results, as well as a solid plan for writing up your PhD thesis. This will be evaluated by your supervisor and examiners, and necessary support will be provided.
