    Impressive lab and computing facilities

Loughborough's Department of Chemical Engineering has a strong and growing research programme with world-class research activities and facilities. Given the multidisciplinary nature of our research we work closely with other University departments across the campus as well as other institutions. The Departments research is divided into two key areas although interdisciplinary research and sharing of expertise amongst groups within the Department is commonplace.

The Department has close working relationships with AstraZeneca, BP, British Sugar, Carlsberg, E.ON, Exxon, GlaxoSmithKline, PepsiCo and Unilever to name but a few of the global organisations we work with.
