Our multidisciplinary research addresses the current and future challenges for our society, through engineering solutions.
Our broad range of research programmes are delivered by around 75 academics, researchers and doctoral students, using our excellent research facilities and producing world-leading research outputs.
The Chemical Engineering Department hosts two Centres for Doctoral Training, one in Regenerative Medicine with Keele and Nottingham Universities, and an EPSRC Research Hub focusing on Future Continuous Manufacturing and Crystallisation led by Strathclyde University. The Department is also a major partner in the Centre for Biological Engineering, a world-class research facility in healthcare engineering and cell technologies.
Our research is strongly linked with industry, including well-known global organisations such as AstraZeneca, GlaxoSmithKline and Procter and Gamble.
