About

Chemical engineering research integrated with basic science, offers great potential for bringing essential understanding and innovative technological solutions to the challenges of the future. The Chemical Engineering MPhil/PhD programme is offered by University College London (UCL).

Overview

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. The Chemical Engineering MPhil/PhD programme is offered by University College London (UCL).

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 & Reaction Engineering, Multiphase Systems and Product& Process Systems Engineering addressing challenges in three research areas: Energy & CO2, Sustainable Advanced Manufacturing and Health & Environment.

Careers

Recent graduates have secured positions in a wide range of industries, from engineering to finance. Examples of organisations include: Shell Exploration and Production, AMEC, Petrofac, Sun Chemicals, M W Kellogg, Procter and Gamble, Barclays Bank, UBS and HSBC. Others have gone on to lecture at UCL.

Employability

Chemical engineering offers great potential for bringing quantitative understanding to the service of the chemical industry. Chemical industry alone is one of the UK's largest manufacturing industries and number one exporter. 

The skills achieved by our students not only make them employable in the major chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, food and energy industries, but are also transferable to other sectors including environmental technology, biotechnology and even management and finance. 

Our graduates have been employed in major industries such as GSK, Unilever, Procter and Gamble, Shell, Amec, Tate & Lyle Sugar, as well as continuing successfully in academia.
